But, as we know, in American law, is, when you are - commit a crime, you can be an American citizen, you will be separated from your family. The family border policies were set by his administration.

This means that the illegal entrants would now be prosecuted in federal court and not in civil court like before.

Graham told reporters the measure would keep migrant families together, provide additional judges so detained families would face shorter waiting periods, and supply facilities for the families to stay.
