Sessions and the Trump administration are under heavy criticism for their enforcement of a recently enacted policy that mandates anyone caught entering the USA illegally be arrested and criminally charged for the misdemeanor offense.

Al-Hussein called Trump's policy that has separated almost 2,000 children from their families "abuse" in his last session with the United Nations.

Jeff Sessions' disastrous immigration policies are generating criticism from his own church.

They note in the letter that Sessions is a member of Ashland Place United Methodist Church, in Mobile, Ala. "That's not what I would want from this". The Seattle Times reports that about 300 people attended an Interfaith Service and Vigil organized by the Church Council of Greater Seattle.

The Rev. Valerie Nagel Vogt, associate pastor of Travis Park United Methodist Church in San Antonio, Texas, sent a letter on June 15 hoping to spark a discussion between Sessions and his pastor.

I'm not aware of any circumstance in the 50-year history of The United Methodist Church when a complaint against a lay person moved beyond the stage of its resolution by a district superintendent or a pastor.

"It is inconsistent with our American values to separate these children from their parents", Collins said on CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday. It charges Sessions with violating church rules or principles on child abuse, immorality, racial discrimination and "dissemination of doctrines contrary" to those of the United Methodist Church. It's likely his leadership roles in the church and the frequent invocation of his faith as a political motivating force pushed the clergy and church members to bring these charges.

Uyghur, a Turkic group that makes up around 45 percent of the population of Xinjiang, has accused China of carrying out repressive policies that restrain their religious, commercial and cultural activities.

"The letter, signed by 640 United Methodist clergy and laity members, said the child abuse charge was for "[separating] thousands of young children from their parents [and] holding thousands of children in mass incarceration facilities".

The US government has separated at least 2,000 children from parents at the border since implementing a policy that results in such family separations, the Department of Homeland Security confirmed Friday.

Its 2017 policy statement Detention of Immigrant Children urges that separation of a parent or primary caregiver from his or her children should never occur, unless there are concerns for the child's safety at the hand of the parent. "We give them meals and we give them education and we give them medical care".

Administration officials have flatly denied that characterization.
