Facing a rising tide of outrage from Democrats and some Republicans over the forced separation of migrant children and parents at the U.S.-Mexico border, U.S. President Donald Trump dug in Monday, again falsely blaming Democrats in the escalating political crisis.Democrats have turned up the pressure over the policy, and some Republicans have joined the chorus of criticism. Former first lady Laura Bush has called the policy "cruel" and "immoral" while GOP Sen. Susan Collins expressed concern about it and a former adviser to Trump questioned using the policy to pressure Democrats on immigration legislation.Like Trump, she called on Congress to reform immigration laws.U.S. protocol prohibits detaining children with their parents because the children are not charged with a crime and the parents are.Speaking at the same conference, Sessions echoed Nielsen's defense of the policy, and called on Congress to act.Trump plans to meet with House Republicans Tuesday to discuss pending immigration legislation amid the election-season debate over what has been one of his favorite issues.The White House has said Trump would sign either.
