HHS Considers Holding Migrant Children at Military Bases

Ravina Shamdasani, a spokesperson for the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, said in a statement on Tuesday that the office is "deeply concerned" by the US government's decision to separate migrant families, arguing that the policy "amounts to arbitrary and unlawful interference in family life, and is a serious violation of the rights of the child". "Detention is never in the best interests of the child and always constitutes a child rights violation". "Separating families at the Border is the fault of bad legislation passed by the Democrats", he wrote.

"It is therefore of great concern that in the U.S., migration control appears to have been prioritised over the effective care and protection of migrant children". But in a tweet, Trump, who demanded the separation policy be enforced at the beginning of May, blamed opposition Democrats for it.

"It is therefore of great concern that in the United States, migration control appears to have been prioritised over the effective care and protection of migrant children".

ZTE Said to Have Signed Preliminary Agreement to Lift US Ban
In total, the US will collect $1.7 billion from the Chinese phone company for violating sanctions against Iran and North Korea. At the weekend, the company is believed to have agreed to the plan although a "settlement" document has yet to be signed.

"Border security laws should be changed but the Dem (ocrat) s cant get their act together". Announced April 6 by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the new policy directs authorities to prosecute all instances of illegal border crossings, even against people with few or no previous offenses.

The United States - the only country in the world not to have ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child - still has obligations as a signatory to that treaty and as a party that has ratified other rights treaties, Ms Shamdasani said.

The stations, run by the Border Patrol and meant only as the first stop for children detained at the border, often lack adequate bedding or separate sleeping rooms for children. However, the statement by the United Nations increased the pressure on him and his administration to reverse the policy, and that, at least, is a positive development. The new "zero tolerance" policy has resulted in hundreds of migrant kids being separated from their parents and sent to border stations, according to NBC News.

They tried to have close relations with him. "We will also obviously have some very robust discussions on trade", Trudeau said. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin at a meeting last week in the Canadian resort town of Whistler, British Columbia.

In a briefing on Tuesday, Shamdasani called the practice a "serious violation" of children's rights and called the separations "arbitrary and unlawful".

The US says the policy aims to stem a surge in the number of poor families, mostly from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, entering the country. It has also said that some adults falsely claim to be the parents of accompanying children, a genuine problem, and that it has to sort out their claims.
