>> The Democrats wanna protect illegals->> As President Trump continues to push his hard immigration policies, officials said on Monday that parents who cross illegally with their children will not face prosecution. At least for now, because the government is running out places to house them. This comes after Trump signed an order halting his practice of separating migrant children from their parents, a policy which sparked a global outcry.
Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, reaffirmed the administration's commitment to zero tolerance policy on Monday just as it's being suspended.>> If we refuse to prosecute these adults for illegal entry as many of our critics want us to do, that would be a disservice, I think, to the people of this country.
>> Government officials report that over 2,000 children remain separated from their parents at the US-Mexico border, as officials have asked the US military to prepare housing for up to 20,000 unaccompanied child migrants on its bases. Reuters correspondent, Julio Chavez, visited a detention center in Tornillo, Texas, that houses children.
>> There are 326 children being held here right now. 14 of them are girls, all the rest are boys. All of them between the ages of 13 and 17 years old. And we're told that the main things they wanna do is play soccer, watch the World Cup, but they do have a regimented schedule.
The main concern Health and Human Services has told us that they have right now is making sure that these 326 children being held here right now are reunited with their loved ones.>> We want a system where when people come in illegally, they have to go out.>> President Trump on Monday reiterated his frustration with laws granting due process to illegal immigrants.
Democrats have accused Trump of wanting to circumvent the US Constitution's guarantee of due process for those accused of crimes.
