Trump reverses family separation policy after tech, political backlash

The main action in the order is a demand that Attorney General Jeff Sessions promptly file a request to the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California to modify the Flores Settlement Agreement.

The Trump administration earlier this year began enforcing a policy that separated members of families that cross U.S. borders illegally.

The majority crossed the border without their parents.

"Tomorrow we're going to have a vote on legislation that makes sure we can enforce our laws and keep families together", Ryan told reporters at a weekly press briefing.

It's absurd to turn around and fight Flores when the problem is the draconian policy that requires mass housing, feeding and care of immigrant families. Here's what we know about the current immigration policy and what the new executive order will change. It is unclear under what circumstances the president believes incarceration would not pose a risk to a child's welfare. Also, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and the heads of other agencies are ordered to find or construct facilities to house the detained families. He also said to construct more facilities as needed. "We are keeping the family together". Until we have a sufficiently large and competent immigration system to process these people, we have no business detaining them (kids or no kids) in facilities never meant to be inhabited for any length of time.

While Trump held firm to his tough immigration stance in an earlier appearance Tuesday, he acknowledged during the closed-door meeting that the coverage of family separations is taking a toll.

Leaders in both the House and Senate are struggling to shield the party's lawmakers from the public outcry over images of children taken from migrant parents and held in cages at the border.

Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, pleaded with Republicans on the panel to "stand up" to Trump. One official said it was the Justice Department that generated the legal strategy that is codified in the working executive order, and disputed the notion that Homeland Security was involved in drawing up the document. This is the only solution to the border crisis.


"These loopholes have created a massive child smuggling trade", Trump said. The settlement of a class-action lawsuit set policies for the treatment and release of unaccompanied children who are caught at the border. "Those who are responsible are the immigrant parents and the politicians who encourage them to come". "So obviously, there's been trafficking". Trump recently ordered tariffs on $50 billion in Chinese goods in retaliation for what the US said is intellectual property theft.

He did not immediately provide details of the bill, but said that it resolves the issue of so-called Dreamers, undocumented adult migrants who entered the U.S. as children, "in a very elegant way". Only about 20 percent of asylum cases are eventually granted approval by a federal judge.

"It's destroying our country", he said.

He suggested that the Democrats can't win on their "terrible policies", and that "they view illegal immigrants "as potential voters".

It followed Paul Ryan's announcement that the House of Representatives would vote on a bill which would keep families arriving at the Mexican border together. Officials in charge of children have said they are not routinely provided information about how family separations occur or where a minor's parents may be.

But he offered no backup plan to bring an end to family separations at the border if the measure failed to pass.

It is not the first time a lack of diversity surrounding Trump has been noted.

The proposal would also eliminate the 20-day cap on DHS administrative custody for accompanied children, so families would be kept together in the custody of DHS throughout criminal proceedings. Try staying in Mexico for a couple of days.
