Is Zero Tolerance Policy Destroying United States of America?

The immigration climate of the US has divided not only the government but the country itself. The application of zero tolerance policy by Trump Administration has resulted in the separation of immigrant parents and their children. At the detention centers, the children are kept in cages, siblings are not allowed to hug and various workers at the centers have resigned. Wildes and Weinberg, one of the top law firms in the country advise the immigrants to sought the best immigration lawyers in the country for advice. It is extremely important that the children and families are kept safe. In the six weeks, minimum of 2,000children have been separated from their parents.

What does the zero-tolerance policy require?
The zero-tolerance policy which was announced in April requires the criminal charges pressed for the adults who are caught crossing the border through the illegal port of entry. President Trump has also said that he would like authority to legally detain children along with the parents.

What does former First Lady(s) say?
Laura Bush, wife of former president George Bush also calls the zero-tolerance policy cruel and immoral. She goes on to write, “Our government should not be in the business of warehousing children in converted box stores or making plans to place them in tent cities in the desert outside of El Paso. These images are eerily reminiscent of the Japanese American internment camps of World War II, now considered to have been one of the most shameful episodes in U.S. history. We also know that this treatment inflicts trauma; interned Japanese have been two times as likely to suffer cardiovascular disease or die prematurely than those who were not interned.”

Hillary Clinton tweeted, “It is now the official policy of the US government – a nation of immigrants – to separate children from their families. That is an absolute disgrace. #FamiliesBelongTogether.

A stand of the Republican party
Even President Trump’s own party has expressed their criticism of the policy. Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, a Republican along with other Republican politicians called the policy “inhumane”. With such crisis taking place in the country, the immigration lawyers are asking the immigrants to hire the immigrant lawyers to help with their specific cases and keep the families whole and safe.
