U.N Rights Chief Accuses Trump Of Taking Migrant Children From Parents

By Ikenga Chronicles June 19, 2018

The United Nations’ top human rights official on Monday entered the mounting furor over the Donald Trump administration’s policy of separating undocumented immigrant children from their parents, and called for an immediate halt to a practice he condemned as abuse.

United States immigration authorities have detained almost 2,000 children in the past six weeks, which may cause them irreparable harm with lifelong consequences, said Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, the United Nations high commissioner for human rights.

He cited an observation by the president of the American Association of Pediatrics that locking the children up separately from their parents constituted “government-sanctioned child abuse.”

“The thought that any state would seek to deter parents by inflicting such abuse on children is unconscionable,” Mr. al-Hussein said.

The White House is responding to criticism of its policy against illegal border crossings in four very distinct ways.

His intervention added to an escalating chorus of condemnation from people across the political spectrum in the United States, including former first lady Laura Bush, who called the separations “cruel” and “immoral.”

President Trump turned to Twitter early Monday to blame Democrats for the current situation: “Why don’t the Democrats give us the votes to fix the world’s worst immigration laws?” he wrote.
