Then, after her spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham, said that Melania absolutely hates this policy she then went on to go ahead and do what most Republicans have also done and, basically, blame the Democrats for making this problem.

The Trump administration has said it's simply enforcing a law to prosecute adults that come into the US illegally and that children can not be housed with adults while they are going through the criminal process.

The reality, however, is that Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a "zero-tolerance" policy last month in which everyone who crossed the border illegally would be prosecuted criminally, thus resulting in children being taken from adults.

"No nation can have the policy that whole classes of people are immune from immigration law or enforcement".

She wrote "This zero-tolerance policy is cruel". In a tweet welcoming the first lady home from the hospital after a kidney procedure, President Trump accidentally called her "Melanie".

Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway tried to distance the Trump administration from responsibility over the growing scandal on Sunday. "As a mother, as a Catholic, as somebody who has got a conscience ..."

The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, later backed up Sessions' use of the verse, saying that "it is very biblical to enforce the law". They got a first-hand look at the living conditions at the facilities.
