The statement was issued on Father's Day.

Since that controversy erupted, Trump has repeatedly used the term proudly. But he said he wouldn't support an immigration bill unless it also blocked employers from hiring immigrants who are in the USA illegally, eliminated "sanctuary cities" and ended family-based migration.

United States (US) officials have confirmed that in the last six weeks almost 2,000 migrant children were separated from their families at the US-Mexico border.

Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon has said he believes Martin Luther King, Jr. would be "proud" of what President Donald Trump has done for African-American and Latino workers in the United States. "The thinking in the building is to force people to the table".

Later Friday afternoon, Trump urged Democrats to work with him for a tough immigration bill.

"The children can be taken care of quickly, beautifully and immediately", Trump said.

"We understand that our immigration system is broken, but this is certainly not the way to handle it", Brooks said. That effort, which ran counter to Trump's earlier promise to sign a bipartisan bill protecting the young immigrants, foundered in Congress.

"The Democrats are forcing the breakup of families at the Border with their frightful and cruel legislative agenda", the president tweeted on Friday, again blaming Democrats.

Trump plans to meet with House Republicans on Tuesday to discuss pending immigration legislation amid an election-season debate over an issue that helped vault the NY real estate mogul into the Oval Office in 2016. "I really try to look at the policy issues".

Trump adviser Roger Stone reveals new meeting with Russian figure

"I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the objective of order", he said. "They are holding the kids hostage".

Separating children from their parents is part of the new "zero tolerance" policy that mandates every adult who crosses the border illegally be held for criminal prosecution. President Barack Obama faced an even larger surge in border crossings that overflowed shelters and prompted the authorities to release many families. But there is no law mandating that children be separated from their parents.

In a tweet Saturday morning, the president bashed Democrats for obstructing a GOP immigration bill that would stop the separation of families on the border, provide protection for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, and provide funding for a border wall.

Some senior officials think Democrats will be pressured by the policy to cut an immigration deal. After Donald Trump blamed "many sides" for violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last year, Melania Trump posted a message on Twitter saying, "Our country encourages freedom of speech, but let's communicate w/o hate in our hearts".

Democrats have been incorporating the plight of the separated children in their midterm election campaigns. It was focused on freeing and otherwise helping children who come to the border without a parent or guardian.
