Trump says separation isn't his policy. Here are all the times his team said it was by Respect Blues

WASHINGTON — On Monday, President Donald Trump blamed Democrats for the separation of migrant children from their families.
“If the Democrats would sit down instead of obstructing we could have something done very quickly. Good for the children, good for the country, good for the world, it could take place quickly,” he said.
Hours later, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen denied that the separation policy was meant to deter undocumented immigrants from crossing the border. “Congress is asking those of us who enforce the law to turn our backs on the law and not enforce the law,” she said in defending the separation practice. “It's not an answer. The answer is to fix the laws.”
But here are all of the times we found when the Trump administration said this was THEIR policy and that it was meant to DETER undocumented immigrants.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions: “I have put in place a ‘zero tolerance’ policy.”

“I have put in place a ‘zero tolerance’ policy for illegal entry on our Southwest border. If you cross this border unlawfully, then we will prosecute you. It’s that simple. If you smuggle illegal aliens across our border, then we will prosecute you. If you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you and that child will be separated from you as required by law.” (Speech in San Diego, California, May 7, 2018)
