Associated Press Updated 1:25 p.m. UTC Jun 27, 2018 Los Angeles – The clock is ticking for the Trump administration after a federal judge ordered thousands of migrant children and parents reunited within 30 days, sooner if the youngster is under 5.

"There should never be a scenario where you take kids away from their parents for any reason whatsoever, EVER," White said leaving dinner in Beverly Hills. "They'd have to shoot me to take my kids." For his part, Trump signed an executive order Wednesday saying parents and children should not be separated -- but a "zero tolerance" policy remains, which concerns Democrats who believe the policy could lead to the indefinite detention of families. … [Read more...] about Dana White Rips Immigration Policy, ‘They’d Have to Shoot Me to Take My Kids’
