New Delhi, Jun 20 (ANI): The United States President Donald Trump defended his policy of separating children from their families who have been illegally crossing the southern US-Mexico border, saying, to prosecute parents for illicit entry, "you have to take the children away." He delivered his remarks at the National Federation of Independent Businesses 75th Anniversary Celebration. "They are fake. They are helping these smugglers and these traffickers like nobody would believe," he added. The Trump administration's immigration policy is facing a backlash from both Democrats and Republicans, who call it inhuman to separate the minors from their families during immigration.
