Homeland Security prepares order to end family separations at border

Trump's executive order reversing the practice continued to argue that Congress' inaction allowed the situation to happen. We are also going to count on Congress, obviously, but we are signing an executive order in a little while.

Trump promised "you will have lots of happy people", but the Health and Human Services Department, which oversees the children's care, said in a statement "it is still very early, and we are awaiting further guidance on the matter".

"It's about keeping families together while at the same time making sure that we have a very powerful, very strong border, ' Trump said as he signed the document". He said without it, "you would have a run on this country the likes of which nobody has ever seen".

The president said the Justice Department is now drafting an order to undo separation of migrant families.

The news in recent days has been dominated by searing images of children held in cages at border facilities, as well as audio recordings of young children crying for their parents — images that have sparked fury, question of morality and concern from Republicans about a negative impact on their races in Novembers midterm elections.

Trump pointed to those images in his meeting, saying theyd "affect everybody" but that he was torn.

During that same speech, Trump suggested Democrats turn the other way as massive immigration fraud occurs because "they view that... as potential voters".

He had tried to blame Democrats for the separations policy and force them into concessions, including funding for a wall he wants to build along the border with Mexico. "Republicans want security. But I am working on something - it never ends!" he wrote.

Stokes is now undergoing rehabilitation as he tore his left hamstring during the two-match Test series against Pakistan. Bowler Jake Ball is recalled and Mark Wood rested for the four games - one with Australia and three against India.

Bowing to pressure from anxious allies, President Donald Trump abruptly reversed himself Wednesday and signed an executive order halting his administration's policy of separating children from their parents when they are detained illegally crossing the USA border. Trump chose to split the families at the border - thereby complying with Flores by not detaining the children, but also prosecuting adults.

The president directed Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to maintain custody of detained families during criminal proceedings and as their asylum claims are adjudicated.

In the Oval Office, Trump said he had also heard from his daughter and aide, Ivanka Trump, about the policy.

Republicans and Trump have raised expectations that, in control of Congress and the White House, they can fix the nation's long-standing immigration problems.

The Department of Justice filed a request Thursday to modify a 1997 order that limits the amount of time children can be detained in an attempt to end family separations at the border. The AP cited two people with knowledge of the situation, but who only spoke under the condition that they would remain anonymous. "An ACF spokesperson misspoke earlier regarding the executive order signed today by the president", said Brian Marriott, senior director of communications. Trump quickly reversed course to back the bill and swooped into the Capitol for a late huddle on Tuesday (Wednesday NZT) with Republicans.

The almost 300-page compromise measure creates a path way to citizenship for the young immigrants known as Dreamers, who have been living in the US illegally since childhood. Over 2,700 children have been isolated from their parents since October, pressuring capacity at facilities amid a crackdown by law enforcement officials.

The action came after a firestorm of protest from administration opponents and allies, reacting to pictures and sounds of young children traumatized by their separation from their parents at the hands of USA authorities. But the decision marks a meaningful shift, after top Trump administration officials, including chief of staff John Kelly and Attorney-General Jeff Sessions, said they would keep their heads down and continue on with separations in an effort to "deter" other families from bringing their children to the border.
