Peter Boogaard, a former DHS and White House official in the Obama administration and now a spokesman for immigration reform group FWD.us says these children having nowhere to go and being away from their parents is not entirely the fault of HSS. The UN warned the US regarding its policy and said, "The US should immediately halt this practice". But in a tweet, Trump, who demanded the separation policy be enforced at the beginning of May, blamed opposition Democrats for it.
"Border security laws should be changed but the Dem (ocrat) s cant get their act together".

"Once again, the United Nations shows its hypocrisy by calling out the United States while it ignores the reprehensible human rights records of several members of its own Human Rights Council", said Nikki Haley, United States Ambassador to the United Nations.
President Trump is falsely claiming that "bad legislation passed by the Democrats" has forced his administration to separate children from their families at the border, even though no such law exists.
"The use of immigration detention and family separation as a deterrent runs counter to human rights standards and principles", Shamdasani said during a briefing in Geneva. "Detention is never in the best interests of the child and always constitutes a child rights violation".
Most crossing the USA southern border are from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador where there is rampant violence and persecution targeting children and young adults, he said.
"The majority of people arriving at the U.S.'s southern border have fled Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador-in many cases either because of rampant insecurity and violence, or because of violations of a range of other rights, such as health, education, and housing", she noted.
