At a press gaggle in the Oval Office, President Donald Trump called his detention centers for migrant children a humanitarian crisis.

Ever since Oregon Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley tried to visit a children's detention center in Texas, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) remains under heightened scrutiny for enforcing the Justice Department's new policy for dealing with asylum seekers and other migrants with children at the United States southern border. Jeff Sessions, Attorney General and head of the Justice Department, unveiled President Donald Trump's plan back on May 7.
