US President Donald Trump said Tuesday he was not planning to reinstate
the policy of separation of migrant families. It ended in June 2018 in the face of the outcry she provoked.
"We do not plan to do it," he said, while stressing that this measure had a real deterrent effect. "When you do not, it attracts a lot more people to the border," he said. "It's me who suppressed it," he said, saying the system was put in place by his predecessor Democrat Barack Obama.
"The worst laws in the world"
In the spring of 2018, the transfer of more than 2,300 minors to shelters and images of crying children provoked an uproar even within the Republican ranks, pushing the White House tenant to step back. The US president has once again called for a tightening of immigration laws and denounced what he calls the "obstruction" of his opponents Democrats on this issue.
"We have the worst laws in the world," he said, on the occasion of the reception in the Oval Office of his Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah al-Sissi. "Congressional Democrats do not want to act. They want open borders, which means they want crime, they want the drugs to flow into our country. "
Visibly frustrated by the lack of results on this issue which he made one of the priorities of his presidency, Donald Trump announced Sunday the departure of his Minister of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen.
