Ivanka Tweets Photo With Son After Border Separations

"They thought it was recent pictures in order to make us look bad, but backfires".

With #MissingChildren and #WhereAreTheChildren, Netizens have launched scathing attack on the Trump administration calling out the immigrant policy as "inhumane".

"Dems must agree to Wall and new Border Protection for good of country ..."

President Donald Trump took Democrats to task early Tuesday for tweeting photos from 2014 showing immigrant children being kept in steel cages after having been detained at the southern border and linking the images to his current immigration policy.

A picture of Ivanka Trump cuddling her son has sparked social media furore and been labelled "tone deaf" after being posted to her Twitter account soon after widespread reports of United States immigration agents separating children from their parents. One photo shows two unidentified female detainees sleeping in a holding cell.

Since October, more than 700 children have been separated from their parents, the New York Times reports.

Former Barack Obama speech writer Jon Favreau's now-deleted tweet.




The images, which were first published by the Associated Press in 2014, resurfaced over the weekend for reasons that remain unclear, and quickly prompted viral outrage on Twitter.

Another former Obama official, Cecilia Muñoz, who served as the director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, offered a similar explanation to NPR on Tuesday.

Ivanka Trump received severe flak on Twitter as she posted a photo of herself cuddling her little son, even as there are reports that 1,475 children have gone missing when they crossed the US-Mexico border on their own.

The almost four-year-old photographs were linked to reports that Homeland Security had lost track of almost 1,500 migrant children last year.

Favreau did not immediately respond to a phone call seeking comment. "Today, in 2018, the government is CREATING unaccompanied minors by tearing them away from family at the border".

"The loopholes that they fight so hard to protect are the source" of the controversy, said Stephen Miller, the president's top adviser on immigration policy, referring to Democrats. "We don't want to separate families, but we don't want families to enter the border illegally".

Previously people caught crossing the border illegally were often deported without being criminally charged, but a "zero tolerance policy" announced in April means illegal entrants are to face prosecution in the criminal court.
