Trump Pushes for More Separation of Families on the Southern Border

President Trump is pushing for more separation of families on the border as he intensifies his crackdown on immigration and purges the leadership of the Department of Homeland Security. Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and the director of the Secret Service have already been removed as Trump puts hard-line adviser Stephen Miller in charge of the nation’s immigration policy.

This comes a month after President Trump signed his first presidential veto, after lawmakers in both houses of Congress voted in favor of a resolution reversing his declaration of a national emergency on the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump claimed there was an “invasion” occurring on the southern border.

DN! hosts a roundtable discussion with Erika Andiola, chief advocacy officer for RAICES, the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services; Dr. David Glosser, the uncle of Trump adviser Stephen Miller; and Democracy Now! correspondent and producer Renée Feltz, who has long reported on the criminalization of immigrants, family detention and the business of detention.
