As I sit here today I'm extremely concerned about the administration's repeated attacks on some of the most vulnerable communities. And in particular children and pregnant women.>> Have you been directed to separate parents from children as a method of deterrence of undocumented immigration?>> I have not been directed to do that for purposes of deterrence, no.
My decision has been that anyone who breaks the law will be prosecuted.>> So your agency will be separating children from their parents, and I would assume->> No, what we'll be doing is prosecuting parents who've broken the law, just as we do every day in the United States of America.
>> I can appreciate that. But if that parent has a four-year-old child, what do you plan on doing with that child?>> The child under law goes to HHS for care and custody.>> They will be separated from their parents. And so my question->> Just like we do in the United States every day.
>> Do you have a protocol in place about how that should be done? And are you training the people who will actually remove a child from their parent on how to do that in the least traumatic way? I would hope you do.>> I'm happy to provide you with the training information.
>> Thank you.
