The zero tolerance immigration policy (2018- ) was rolled out in the US in April 2018 by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Over this past Father’s Day weekend it has become infamous for separating children from parents who cross the south-western border, putting the children in cages.
An Ipsos poll on June 14th and 15th asked 1,000 people in the US age 18 or over if they agreed with this:
“It is appropriate to separate undocumented immigrant parents from their children when they cross the border in order to discourage others from crossing the border illegally.”
- 27% agreed,
- 56% disagreed,
- 17% unsure.
- 46% Republicans agreed,
- 29% Independents,
- 14% Democrats.
Only 32% of Republicans disagreed!
The policy is opposed by the United Nations, the American Academy of Pediatrics, 300 US Catholic bishops, First Lady Laura Bush, the Southern Baptist Convention, and even Franklin Graham.
President Trump blames the Democrats
