White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders defended immigration authorities who are separating parents from their children caught entering the country illegally explaining it's "very biblical to enforce the law" and pointed blame on Democrats who refuse to "close the immigration loophole."

Between the lines: Last week, President Trump falsely claimed that the current practice stems from a "law" passed by Democrats. The administration made the decision as part of its "zero-tolerance" policy on illegal immigration.
