"This is the White House, not an abandoned Wal-Mart. You're allowed to leave," Colbert says while calling out Trump's press secretary.

Once again, the main topic of discussion across the late-night landscape is the growing outrage over President Trump's policy of separating immigrant children from their parents at the border.

With various talking heads on Fox News -- like Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter -- spinning support for the policy, the controversy and rhetoric has only intensified. Even worse for Trump, lawmakers on the GOP side of the aisle have started publicly speaking out against the policy, and rejecting the president's claim that the Democrats created this problem in Congress and refuse to fix it.

The simple fact of the matter is that this is a policy implemented by the White House last month and it can just as quickly be stopped by Trump's team. Even Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was purportedly too uncomfortable to talk about the policy to reporters, and so she sent out Secretary of Homeland Security Kristjen Nielsen to handle it, which Stephen Colbert just couldn't believe and called on Sanders to resign if she's finally reached her breaking point.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump continues to say it's not his policy and he hates it as much as the American people. So who's to blame? Trevor Noah thinks it's Trump's "TV Cabinet" over at Fox News. He joined Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers in their continuing condemnation of this inhumane practice.

'The Daily Show with Trevor Noah'

Trevor Noah was dumbfounded at the spin the Fox News pundits were trying to put on Trump's policy of tearing families apart at the border. He called out "Secretary of Inhuman Services" Laura Ingraham for comparing these detention facilities to summer camp.

"What kind of freaky-ass summer camp was she going to? Was her family just dropping her off every June at state prison?" he asked, showing a picture of a little blonde girl making a license plate.

The Comedy Central host dubbed Tucker Carlson the "Director of False Equivalencies" before playing a clip of the Fox News host saying, "A lot of people yelling at you on TV don’t even have children. So don’t for a second let them take the moral high ground."

"This angry McNugget seriously just said that you can't care about kids unless you have kids," Noah marveled. "That is the dumbest logic I have ever heard." He then imagined Carlson as a doctor telling a cancer patient, "Well, I don't have cancer, so really I don't give a shit."

Noah said it was one thing to make jokes about it and raise awareness, but it's action that's truly needed to affect change. "Separating kids from their parents is heartless. And the only way that we can stop the government from doing it is to demand change," he said.

"So get on the phone and call the people who can actually do something about this. And I'm not talking about Congress, I'm talking about the policy makers at Fox News. Call them because they can do something. They work for the president which means they work for you."

He then gave out Fox News' telephone number, which by the way is 1-888-369-4762 if you're inclined to take him up on his offer.

'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert'

Stephen Colbert sees this as a pretty black-and-white situation. "There are two ways to look at this story," he said Tuesday night. "Either you can be horrified, or you can work for Donald Trump." As Trevor Noah put it, this includes Fox News, so their outrage is free to continue.

But while Noah was trumpeting the possibility of change, Colbert was noting that even Trump spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders was staying out of this one, with Kristjen Nielsen handling the press reactions.

"If kids in cages is too much for you to defend, there is one option. You could resign," Colbert told Sanders. "This is the White House, not an abandoned Wal-Mart. You're allowed to leave."

As for Ingraham's tone-deaf comparson of these detention centers to summer camp, Colbert pointed out that the picture over her shoulder of a detention center looked nothing like summer camp. "Where did you go to summer camp?" he asked. "Lake Wanahumanrights?

'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

"Even with a hellstorm of criticism coming his way from Republicans and Democrats alike, the president is digging in, as he does," Jimmy Kimmel said during his monologue, for which video is not available. "He keeps saying there's a law requiring him to do this, which first of all, no there isn't; that's complete B.S.; and secondly, since when did Donald Trump start caring about laws?"

The ABC late-night host also took issue with Trump saying Democrats want illegal immigrants to "infest our country," always trying to make this a partisan issue. "He used the word 'infest,'" Kimmel said. "You know, just like his German grandfather infested our country. No job, no English. He just crawled in on his stomach and infested the country with a bunch of Trumps."

Since that video isn't available online, if you want more Kimmel, at least you can enjoy him continuing to rag on Ted Cruz after their one-on-one charity basketball game.

'Late Night with Seth Meyers'

The line that stood out for Seth Meyers was when Trump said, "Congress can fix this tomorrow." Setting aside that they can't as it's not their policy, Meyers joked, "Have you met Congress? They're still finalizing the Louisiana Purchase!"

But one of Trump's many tweets did get his attention, as it might offer a solution to the whole thing. "President Trump tweeted today, 'If you don't have borders, you don't have a country!'" Meyers said. Then continuing that train of thought, he went on. "And if you don't have a country, you can't have a president, so we did it, we got rid of him! It was the borders this whole time."

'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon'

Fallon barely touched on the topic, but couldn't resist one quick jab at the president's expense. He pointed out that "officials from 22 states demanded that Trump stop separating immigrant families. 22 states!"

He then added the punchline: "When Trump heard that, he was like, 'Crap, that's every state!'"
