Protests against the Trump administration's policy of separating migrant children from their parents were held in New York City and San Francisco on Tuesday. Images published on the same day showed children are being kept in prison-like conditions and crying for their parents at juvenile detention centres near the US's souther border. Attorney General Jeff Sessions' new zero-tolerance policy... Еще has been blamed for separating families. Under the new rules, all cases of illegal entry are referred for criminal prosecution. Around 2,000 migrant children have been separated from their parents between mid-April and May, because, unlike their parents, they are not charged with a crime.
