The United Nation’s top human rights official on Monday called on the Trump administration to end its “zero-tolerance” policy, which has resulted in the separation of migrant families at the southern border, calling the practice abusive.

Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, the United Nations high commissioner for human rights, spoke out against the policy during an address in Geneva, The New York Times reported.

“The thought that any state would seek to deter parents by inflicting such abuse on children is unconscionable,” al-Hussein said.

He highlighted in his address that U.S. immigration officials had detained about 2,000 children over the past weeks.

The reports coming out by the American media are full of lies. People who commit crime are often separated from their families.
