Images of detention centers, particularly those housing immigrant children, gained media attention, sparking bipartisan outrage this week as critics attacked the Trump administration’s policy of separating the migrant families.
Trump has overseen a crackdown on immigration enforcement since taking office, including the implementation of his administration’s âzero toleranceâ policy at the border. Under this policy, all adults caught entering the country illegally from the southern border are returned for prosecution.
The president has come under scrutiny for this policy, which has led to the separation of thousands of immigrant parents and children at the border. Bowing to bipartisan pressure, Trump signed an executive order last week ending his administration’s policies.
Most families, under the order, are to be held together, although the future of those already separated under the original policy is still unclear.
