Trump's executive order only protects against family separation for 20 days

Mr Trump had defended the policy, saying he would not allow the U.S. to become a "migrant camp", but he had recognised the issue was a growing political problem, according to White House sources.

We are also left with question as to whether the "zero tolerance" policy is constitutional as it is being implemented and whether the administration is equipped to care - at huge taxpayer expense - for those who came here desperate to escape from their home countries.

Urging the Congress to change what he calls 'the ridiculous laws" on immigration, the President wrote, "Now is the best opportunity ever for Congress to change the ridiculous and obsolete laws on immigration. Protesters were galvanized to act after distressing photos and stories hit social media depicting children separated from their parents and sleeping in cages, crammed five in a room at repurposed Walmarts, or in so-called "tent cities" at costs reportedly exceeding what it would take to keep families together.

President Trump appeared to relent under the weight of vast backlash today, signing an executive order he claims will end the much-criticized practice of separating families at the border.

It's unclear whether the president is supportive of the measure.

However, Republicans, who have a majority in both the upper and lower house, have signaled that they may not have sufficient votes to pass the legislation.

It was a dramatic turnaround for Trump, who has been insisting, wrongly, that his administration had no choice but to separate families apprehended at the border because of federal law and a court decision.

However, Woods failed to sustain his momentum in the next holes as he made a double-bogey at the par-4 1st to drop to plus-10. Open with an 81, and he provided the snapshot of a day that was entertaining for reasons the USGA didn't imagine.

However, Democrats and some Republicans have said Trump could end the policy himself.

What exactly the order will say is still continued to be worked out, with ongoing conversations between the White House, the Justice Department and Homeland Security, the source explained. "When we have an announcement to make, we'll make it". "We will not apologize for enforcing the laws passed by Congress", she had tweeted earlier this week, although there are no such laws ordering children to be separated.

"They don't care about crime and want illegal immigrants, no matter how bad they may be, to pour into and infest our country, like MS-13". "Republicans want security. But I am working on something - it never ends!" he wrote. More than 2,300 minors were taken from their parents between early May and early June, according to statistics from the Department of Homeland Security. The children are put into the custody of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services with the aim of keeping them as close to their parents as possible and reuniting the family after the case goes through the courts, said Steven Wagner, an acting assistant secretary at the Department of Health and Human Services. The order comes on the heels of repeated efforts by the Trump administration to double down on its "zero-tolerance" policy aimed of separating children from their parents at the border, which Sessions claimed is justified in the Bible-earning him widespread rebuke. That would mark a sharp departure from the current requirement, as dictated by a 2015 court ruling, that children be released from family detention within 20 days.

The department has set up new facilities to manage the influx of children, and Wagner said they were prepared to expand as more children come into custody.

ORR has 100 sites scattered across 17 states, which means children can be on the other side of the country from their parents. They crossed through Mexico to reach the US border.

So what happens to the children who have been separated from their parents? Neither, though, did it require parents to be kept in detention, apart from their children.
