Melania Trump and Laura Bush Have Both Openly Criticized the U.S.

In a rare comment on one of her husband’s policies, Melania Trump has openly criticized her husband’s administration’s “zero tolerance” practice at the Mexican border, which has seen nearly 2,000 children separated from their parents since April 19.”Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform,” her communications director Stephanie Grisham told CNN. “She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart.”On May 7, the administration announced a policy in which people caught trying to cross the border illegally are automatically charged with a federal crime. Before this, families with children who were caught at the border were typically referred to immigration court, but now, because parents are being charged in the legal system, they’re separated from their children.Donald Trump insists these families are being separated because of “bad legislation” passed by Democrats — but the fact is this policy is his, enacted in May, long after he had taken office.Attorney General Jeff Sessions said this policy is meant to deter people from crossing the border illegally. “If you’re smuggling a child, we’re going to prosecute you, and that child will be separated from you, probably, as required by law,” Sessions said to Association of State Criminal Investigative Agencies, per CNN. “If you don’t want your child to be separated, then don’t bring them across the border illegally.” (The Department of Homeland Security’s Kirstjen Nielsen, meanwhile, has said there is “no policy” mandating such separations, in direct contradiction to this.)
