Ivanka Trump has been criticized for sharing a "deaf" photo of her with her two-year-old son. US border officials reportedly seized children from their parents.
In early May, the Department of Justice announced plans to separate family members at the US-Mexico border. This marks a postponement of a long-established immigration policy that allowed parents and children to stay together while handling their cases.

Brian Klaas, a former Democratic strategist and fellow at the London School of Economics, was among those who argued that the photograph was insensitive due to immigration policies her father's administration President Donald Trump [1
His feelings seemed to be mirrored by comedian Patton Oswalt, who tweeted: "Is not it the simplest? Cuddling your little one – knowing exactly where they are, safe in your arms? It is the best. The best. Right, Ivanka? Correct?
The photo was announced weeks after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced "Zero Tolerance" immigration policy on the southwestern border when he addressed the Spring Conference 2018 of the Association of State Criminal Investigations May 7: "If you smuggle a child, then we will persecute you, and that child will be separated from you, as the law requires."
"If you do not like it, do not do it." Children across our frontier. "
At that time, an official of Homeland Security told Reuters: "Those who are arrested are sent directly to federal court Custody of the US Marshals Service and their children are transferred to the custody of the Department of Refugee Relocation of the Department of Health. "
It is assumed that the policy is in force months before the sessions are closed. In April the New York Times reported that since October, more than 700 children have been removed by adults claiming to be their parents, including over 100 children under the age of four.
On Saturday, Donald Trump seemed to blame the Democrats, even though the introduction of immigration laws is being led by the president.
"Pressure on the Democrats to end the terrible law that separates children from there  parents as soon as they cross the US border," he wrote.
