Trump to sign decree to end migrant family separations

White House We won’t stop separating migrant kids from parents

White House officials said that Trump would continue his "no tolerance" policy at the border and simply detain the families as a unit instead of pulling them apart.

With more than 12,000 children being held in detention camps, our nation can no longer claim the moral high ground when it comes to refugee children.

We are also going to count on Congress, obviously, but we are signing an executive order in a little while.

While a Department of Health and Human Services official initially stated that the department is not to apply the executive order to children now in HHS custody, a statement released later Wednesday said that HHS that it is "awaiting guidance on the matter". She said she speaks to her sons once or twice a week and they express "fear, distress, no understanding of what the future holds". In recent days, the Republican president had insisted his hands were tied by law on the issue of family separations and had sought to blame Democrats, although it was his administration that implemented the policy of strict adherence to immigration law. "This isn't hard", said Lee Gelernt of the American Civil Liberties Union. Specifically, Trump had demanded legislative action on his broad immigration agenda, including funding for a border wall and a move toward what he said was a "merit-based" system of immigration.

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 heart-rending news coverage of crying children some of whom were kept in cage-like detention centers. Finally, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is directed to prioritize the adjudication of cases involving detained families.

Christopher Hajec, director of litigation at the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI), agreed that the Flores settlement is the key.

May said she she "unequivocally" believed what the United States administration was doing on its border was "wrong". This is a president who is positively obsessed with whether he looks "strong", as though this entire issue is some kind of judgment on his personal manhood. But he said it is hard to predict how the judge might rule.

The person said Trump called the Justice Department Wednesday morning asking for the draft order.

Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters that the House would vote on Thursday (local time) on new Republican immigration bills.

"If you could have modified the decision, you wouldn't have had the problem in the first place", he said. As part of the executive order, Trump is appealing to the U.S. District Court to overturn the Flores settlement, allowing immigrant families to be detained indefinitely. Pete Aguilar, D-Calif., told McClatchy. "She wanted to give us information because she realized what we were trying to do".

The policy to prosecute all illegal border crossers, including illegal alien adults who cross the border with children, results in border-crossing parents having their children taken into federal custody.

A group called Value Our Families blasted the executive order, arguing it does nothing to stop "inhumane treatment" of families. "There are workable alternatives", president Richard Cohen said in a statement. "Trump must end the cruel mistreatment and disgrace to our country". From left, Sen.

The order does not address what will happen to the families who have already been separated.

The agency's network of immigration jails for single adults is much larger, because ICE leases detention facilities and vacant cells from states and counties across the country. "What the hell is going on?"
