Jeff Sessions: Build a Wall to End 'Terrible Choice' of Separating Migrant Families

Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended the Trump administration policy of separating families at the border, declaring "this country is dedicated to caring for children" and stressing how much is being spent on their room and board.
The Department of Homeland Security reported Friday that 1,995 minors traveling with 1,940 adults who said they were the children's guardians have been separated under the administration's zero-tolerance deterrence policy between April 19 through May 31 this year. More than 100 of those kids are under 4 years old.
The zero-tolerance deterrence policy, which White House adviser Stephen Miller told the New York Times was "a simple decision," was slammed by former first lady Laura Bush over the weekend as "cruel" and "immoral." She added, "These images are eerily reminiscent of the Japanese American internment camps of World War II, now considered to have been one of the most shameful episodes in U.S. history."
