Family Separation Is Trump’s Immigration Policy.
Here’s Why He Won’t Own It

President Trump and administration officials are walking a fine line on family separation at the border.

*

They argue they don’t like the policy, but that their hands are tied and instead are pointing fingers at Congress to “fix” it.

*

There may be good reason for that the policy (and it is a Trump administration policy, despite the Homeland Security secretary’s claims to the contrary) is unpopular.

*

The president on Tuesday called on Congress to come up with a “third option”: for the legal authority to detain and promptly remove families together as a unit. This is similar to a practice used during the Obama administration, when some families were detained together. That, too, was criticized, but it is emerging now as a preferred alternative.

*

Some immigrants under Presidents Obama and George W. Bush were released while they awaited adjudication, but that approach is one Trump and conservative critics chafe at, calling it “catch and release.” Trump White House officials say that’s not an option this president wants to consider since their stated policy is “zero tolerance” for people who cross the border illegally.

*

A hard line on immigration was a fundamental ideological underpinning of Trump’s candidacy. Now, the country is seeing the practical implementation of that ideology, especially after a year in which little got done legislatively on immigration. Trump, though, appears to be looking for a way out of the bad optics and bad politics without looking like he’s compromising his principles.

*

Putting Republicans in a jam

*

The president huddled with House Republicans Tuesday afternoon. They’re considering several bills, but the strings attached, as always, will be what determines if they pass. Hard-liners and the Trump administration want to see what they can get on the president’s other immigration priorities. But there’s only so much moderates and Democrats are willing to give on this.

*

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he wants a narrow bill that deals strictly with family separation.

*

“In order to fix this problem you can’t fix all the problems,” he told reporters. “We’ve wrestled with this issue for a decade.”

*

The reality is, you don’t need to look very far to see which way the wind is blowing on this issue. Not only is the president declining to take full ownership of the policy, but Democrats see no political reason to capitulate, and that leaves moderate Republicans feeling the most heat. Congressional Republicans, especially those in vulnerable House districts, are the ones who most want this issue off the table quickly.

*

That’s why Ohio Rep. Steve Stivers, head of the National Republican Congressional Committee, came out against the policy. He encouraged the Trump administration to “stop needlessly separating children from their parents,” he said in a statement on his Facebook page. “If the policy is not changed, I will support other means to stop unnecessary separation of children from their parents.”

Stivers Statement on Updated Immigration Executive Order

.

Washington, March 6, 2017 | 0 comments

.

My first priority is the safety of the United States, and I am glad this order seeks to better coordinate with agencies to determine if we are receiving enough information from other countries to effectively vet those who are attempting to come into the United States. I continue to support a more permanent solution to our visa vetting process that also ensures we differentiate between our partners in the region and radical Islamic terrorists.”

The following statement can be attributed to Congressman Steve Stivers (R-OH) regarding the updated immigration executive order:
