Trump says will sign executive order to avoid family separations

"Children should not be separated from their parents who are seeking asylum - but neither can the answer be the indefinite jailing of these children with their parents", said Todd Schulte, president of FWD.us, a pro-business group created by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to work on immigration issues.

The US President is facing intense criticism after it emerged that young children are being held in former warehouses after their parents were detained as illegal immigrants.

"In the overall context of this situation, he's not correct", he said.

"Under current law, we have only two policy options to respond to this massive crisis".

Faso, who is running unopposed for his second term in a district Trump won in 2016, said the president could take action immediately to end the separations.

As Trump walked out of the session in the Capitol basement, he was confronted by about a half-dozen House Democrats, who yelled, "Stop separating our families!"

But passage of the House bill remains in doubt even after President Donald Trump met with lawmakers this week to support an immigration fix. Expanded facilities could be key, as migrant children separated from their parents are now housed by a different department, Health and Human Services.

Trump's climbdown came after he faced intense pressure from across the political spectrum and from religious, political and world leaders to halt the separations, which produced days of heartrending news coverage of crying children - some of whom were kept in cage-like detention centers.

Every day, child welfare agencies across America make hard decisions to separate children from their parents. The official did not know what prompted Trump to change course.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told reporters he's reaching out to Democrats for bipartisan backing, since the proposal would need to reach a 60-vote threshold to advance in that chamber. The change would loosen rules that now limit the amount of time minors can be held to 20 days, according to a GOP source familiar with the measure.

Theirs is narrow legislation proposed by Senator Ted Cruz that would allow detained families to stay together in custody while expediting their deportation proceedings.

"The Obama administration, the Bush administration all separated families", Nielsen told reporters during the White House press briefing on Monday.

"While cases are pending, families should stay together", tweeted Cruz, who is in an unexpectedly tough re-election battle.

The Fake News is not mentioning the safety and security of our Country when talking about illegal immigration.

The Trump administration has not figured out a way to reunite families separated by a new zero-tolerance policy enacted this year that's resulted in more than 2,000 kids being taken from their parents.

The national outcry over the separations has roiled midterm election campaigns, emboldening Democrats while putting Republicans on the defensive.

"But we do want to keep families together", Trump said in the Oval Office.

Originally the meeting was planned to reassure Members that he really was on board with the "compromise" bill Paul Ryan wants to bring to the floor for a vote on Thursday along with the more conservative Goodlatte bill, after Trump mistakenly condemned it last week. "Bill O'Reilly said this is very bad".
