President Donald Trump repeated a false claim that Democrats are behind his administration's "zero-tolerance" policy that separates families at the US-Mexico border.
US immigration law does not require families to be split up at the border
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the policy in May.
New immigration legislation introduced by House Republicans Friday does nothing to change the policy.
Almost 2,000 children have reportedly been separated from their families at the border over six weeks under the policy.
President Donald Trump repeated a false claim in a tweet Saturday that blames Democrats for the policy of separating immigrant parents from their children upon crossing the southern border between the US and Mexico.
Trump has tweeted the claim before, and he made the same assertion in front of a White House press gaggle earlier this week.
