White House assistant press secretary Kelly Love plans to leave her job for a position in the Department of Energy, becoming the latest in a series of aides to depart amid a reshuffle of President Donald Trump's press team.
Rep. Kevin Yoder, R-Kan., said hes heartbroken by the separations and is working to find a solution to keep families together.
Naturally, one of the primary grand-standers over this issue at Wednesday's White House press briefing was anti-Trump activist Jim Acosta of the far-left CNN. "You're a parent - you're a parent of young children!". "He's gotten a little criticism for being so expressive at the briefing and I think it was unfair for Sarah to say he just wanted to be on TV", Lizza added. "Even though we've had our public - interesting moments, you know, she's a woman in this job. Don't you have any empathy for what these people are going through?" said Karem, who memorably ripped into Sanders a year ago over the administration's media attacks.
"You're a parent, don't you have any empathy?" another reporter interjected.

At this point, Sanders took another lap through her talking points, prompting Karem to bust in. "It's a moral policy to follow and enforce the law". "They have less than you do". These people have nothing, they come to the border with nothing, and you throw children in cages. It is a policy that the Trump administration implemented in April and could end at any time.More news: Google Think Salman is the 'Worst Bollywood Actor'?
CBS also reported that Raj Shah, deputy press secretary, is planning to leave, though there is no date set for his departure.
"Forced separation of children and parents, especially in connection with the detention of a parent, can constitute an adverse childhood experience, which research links with disrupted neurodevelopment, resulting in social, emotional, and cognitive impairment, and even negative intergenerational effects", the letter adds. "We're a country of law and order, and we're enforcing the law, and protecting our borders".
"I have an apology to make".
"I can say that it is very biblical to enforce the law", said spokeswoman Sarah Sanders in response to a question about the morality of splitting up families. "Does @CBSNews know something I don't about my plans and my future?"
Then speaking to the press, she once again did not completely refute the report, telling reporters she was praying for clarity in the matter.
