Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the Trump administration “never really intended” to separate families as part of the administration’s zero-tolerance policy to prosecute all illegal immigrants.
The Christian Broadcasting Network’s White House correspondent David Brody pressed Sessions in an interview published Thursday by saying the “optics” of the policy have not been “good for the administration.”
“It hasn’t been good,” Sessions said in response. “And the American people don’t like the idea that we’re separating families. We never really intended to do that. What we intended to was to make sure that adults who bring children into the country are charged with the crime they’ve committed instead of giving that special group of adults immunity from prosecution.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The Department of Homeland Security recently confirmed that thousands of minors attempting to enter the country between the ports of entry were separated from accompanying adults after the Trump administration’s zero tolerance immigration policy took effect.
Minors who were split from their families as a result of the zero-tolerance policy will be housed by the Department of Health and Human Services.
