"We do not want children taken away from their parents", he said.
U.S. President Donald Trump backed down on Wednesday on an immigration policy that sparked outrage at home and overseas, signing an executive order to end the separation of children from their parents when immigrant families are caught crossing the U.S. -Mexico border illegally.
Mr Sessions announced a "zero-tolerance" policy to criminally charge and jail undocumented border crossers. I also have got information that there are-I'll say "members"-I say that plurally, with knowledge, that are considering introducing a motion to vacate the chair".
Feinstein, who is facing a re-election challenge for her seat from the left, authored a bill that would bar children from being separated from their parents within 100 miles of the USA border except for instances of abuse, neglect, or other extenuating circumstances.

Attorneys and advocates say that some children whose parents seek asylum are in fact being separated at ports of entry and that they're hard to track down.
