Donald Trump Says Will Sign Executive Order To Avoid Family Separations

Stop breaking up families at the border

"It's about keeping families together while at the same time making sure that we have a very powerful, very strong border", Mr Trump told reporters. The order simply says the administration will detain "alien families together where appropriate and consistent with law and available resources", meaning there are likely to be a lot of exceptions.

U.S. President Donald Trump said he would sign an executive order on immigration on Wednesday to end the separation of immigrant families at the U.S. -Mexico border, which has sparked outrage in the United States and overseas.

Tumlin and other advocates are also concerned for the fate of the children who have already been separated from their families.

Also playing a role in his turnaround: First lady Melania Trump.

Democrats have refused to support any of the proposed immigration bills in Congress, saying that Trump can fix the family separation issue through executive action.

On Wednesday afternoon, congressional Democrats gathered on the Capitol steps to protest the practice of child separation.

Trump agreed with Graham's characterization of the choice facing his administration as it tries to enforce a zero-tolerance policy on prosecutions for those who enter illegally. "We have no desire to be associated with separating families, or worse, to profit from it", the company wrote.

He said the bill would prosecute those illegally crossing the border, and families would remain together during that time under the custody of Department of Homeland Security. But Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said the fix needs to begin with Trump. Nielsen was heckled at a restaurant Tuesday evening and has faced protesters at her home.

In response, Homeland Security began stepping up referrals in early May, which effectively put the policy into action. Very important. Were going to be signing an executive order.

The president's policy change came after days of uproar over audio and photos of kids as young as a few months taken away from their parents. The Flores settlement, named for a teenage girl who brought the case in the 1980s, requires the government to release children from custody and to their parents, adult relatives or other caretakers, in order of preference.
