"Now, under your policy, because children can not accompany their arrested parents to an adult criminal detention center, these children, including infants and toddlers, are routinely separated from their parents", the letter stated. "The Justice Department has once again put politics before its legal and moral obligations by separating families who seek lawful asylum in our country". "In the name of deterring illegal immigration, your Zero Tolerance policy abandons that balance".
