When illegally crossing the US border, the authorities can divide mothers and children to ascertain all the circumstances. Such a proposal being considered by the officials of the Ministry of internal security of the United States, reports Reuters, citing three sources in government.
According to them, this measure aims to reduce the number of mothers coming to the United States with their children. It will allow us to arrest women who challenge deportation or waiting for them to grant asylum. The children in this case will be placed under custody in the “least restrictive conditions”, but they will be able to take care of relatives from the United States or a legal representative, receiving support from the state.
Under current law, families who are contesting deportation remain at large, they are allowed to stay in the U.S. until trial.
According to the source Agency in the Ministry, the Ministry is “actively” considering the issue but has not yet made a final decision. The Ministry of health and social services U.S. Department of homeland security and the White house failed to promptly comment on this information.
After the inauguration of the President of the United States Donald trump is gradually toughening immigration laws. In late January, he signed a decree banning for 90 days entry into the United States to citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The document also has suspended the program for reception. While the decree was suspended by the decision of the court of appeal.
In addition, the American President intends to build a wall on the border with Mexico to limit the flow of illegal migrants. The project cost may reach $21 billion.
