Theresa May has attacked U.S. President Donald J. Trump for enforcing border policies and temporarily separating illegal migrant families, describing it as “deeply disturbing”.
The Prime Minister was repeatedly asked about the U.S. border laws in the House of Commons this Wednesday, responding by calling it “wrong”.
“The pictures of children being held in what appear to be cages are deeply disturbing,” she said.
Adding: “This is wrong. This is not something we agree with. This is not the UK’s approach.”
President Trump is due to arrive in the UK on a state visit on the 13th of July, and he is likely to meet the head of state Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, as well as prominent politicians.
Some members of Parliament, including Labour MP Gavin Shuker, renewed their calls for the visit to be cancelled.
