Ivanka Trump’s Photo With Her Son Has Been Criticized as ‘Tone Deaf’

But Halsey, along with many others, was put off by the post and its poor timing in light of the recently enacted "zero tolerance" policy, which allows border security agents to take away the children of people who entered the US illegally.

Another tweet read, "Ivanka, as a mother, try to imagine what these immigrant mothers must be feeling to know ICE has list their small children, some not yet 2 years old". Patton Oswalt also chimed in, retweeting the image.

"Isn't it [just the] best to snuggle your little ones - knowing exactly where they are, safe in your arms?" It's the best. The BEST.

More than 700 children have been separated from their parents since October, more than 100 of them below the age of four, the New York Times reports.

Donald Trump Jr. posted a photo with two of his children, Spencer and Chloe, and received similar comments.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has defended the Trump administration's practice of separating children from parents when the family is being prosecuted for entering the USA illegally, telling a Senate committee earlier this month that removing children from parents facing criminal charges happens "in the United States every day". "Today, in 2018, the government is CREATING unaccompanied minors by tearing them away from family at the border".

That means children will be separated from parents who are jailed.

Many others tweeted using the #WhereAreTheChildren hashtag.

President Donald Trump slammed Democrats on Tuesday for sharing Obama-era photos showing undocumented immigrant children being held in cages at the border and accused them of misleading the public by insinuating that the pictures were recent.

Ms Trump tweeted the picture on Sunday, local time - less than a month after her father's administration said it would step up efforts to tighten immigration enforcements, in part by separating children of illegal immigrants from parents facing prosecution.
