There have been multiple cases in recent weeks of parents sent back to Central America without their children, who had no idea where their children may be held at one of more than 100 government shelters. He said he couldn't defend helping the Dreamers "to people waiting in line the right way" to immigrate to the U.S.

"We can not allow our Country to be overrun by illegal immigrants as the Democrats tell their phony stories of sadness and grief, hoping it will help them in the elections", he tweeted.

"If we bring in 30 cellphones, they're going to call that number, they're not going to reach 30 children", said Garcia, whose organization has been working with federal authorities to assist immigrants for 40 years.

Mr Trump, elected on a platform of clamping down on undocumented immigrants, also labelled the USA system "a mockery to good immigration policy and law and order".

Since Mr Trump's order, protests have erupted around the country over the separations and the future of families arriving in the U.S. illegally. The immigrants are mostly teenage boys and housed in tent-like structures.

After days of confusion, the Trump administration released its plan for reuniting children still in the custody of Health and Human Services over the weekend.

Sen. Chuck Schumer said Sunday that the federal government should appoint the czar until officials reunite all of the families that were separated. The fact sheet says ICE and HHS will work to facilitate communication, but still lists numbers that parents should call for assistance.

The administration says it will now seek to detain immigrant families during their immigration proceedings, which has also stoked an outcry.

At the end of her conversation with Boteach , Barr said she wanted Jarrett's phone number so that she could call and apologize. When ABC called me and said, 'What is the reason for your egregious racism?' I said, 'Oh my God, it is a form of racism.

Critics say this will lead to thousands of children being kept in detention illegally.

The statement said 522 migrant children had been reunited with their parents, although it did not say how many, if any, of those had been reunited since Trump signed his order on Wednesday. "That is the same information if you are calling and you are a lawyer, if you are calling and you are a social worker, if you are calling and trying to advocate on behalf of these families". Lankford says it takes about 35 days for anyone caught crossing into the US illegally to get a court hearing, setting up a "conundrum" over how to handle these cases.

"Our issue is: strong borders, no crime".

Lankford tells NBC's "Meet the Press" that the best approach would be to try to reform the court settlement so that families can stay together long enough to get a hearing.

President Trump suggested Sunday the United States should block people fleeing violently volatile countries from seeking asylum here and deport any non-citizen trying to cross the border without due process.

"Clearly, anyone who looks at the record understands that the Democrats have been serious about comprehensive immigration reform", Sanders said.

After images of children in chain-link enclosures sparked domestic and global outrage, the president ended the separation practice but has continued his hardline talk on immigration. That leaves their prospects for success dubious. Bill Nelson. "They don't consider that violating the law". They're planning tweaks they hope will bolster support from the GOP's dueling conservative and moderate wings. Those measures could pass the House backed by Democrats and a few Republicans, an outcome that would enrage conservative voters.

The GOP divisions come at a bad time for the party: Elections are approaching and immigration has riveted public attention for months.
