From the Department of Homeland Security website: “The Attorney General directed United States Attorneys on the Southwest border to prosecute all amenable adults who illegally enter the country, including those accompanied by their children. Children whose parents are referred for prosecution will be placed with the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Refugee Resettlement.”

The U.N. human rights chief is blasting the Trump administration over its new policies separating migrant children from their parents after entering the United States from Mexico, saying they've affected nearly 2,000 kids in the last six weeks and put them at risk of "serious health consequences." The High Commissioner for Human Rights is calling for an immediate end to the practice.

Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein, the high commissioner, says it's "unconscionable" that any country would seek to deter parents from migrating "by inflicting such abuse on children."
