Trump says will sign something 'pre-emptive' on immigration border policy

Efrén Olivares, racial and economic justice director for the Texas Civil Rights Project, said in a news release that families will still end up separated while adults go through the criminal proceedings under the zero-tolerance policy. But the move leaves many questions unanswered.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Wednesday to stop the separation of migrant parents and children at the southern border.

Essentially, this means that after the 20-day mark, children may still be separated from their parents.

"We want to keep families together", Trump said, "At the same time we have to be strong on the border".

The speaker did not offer any back-up plan to bring an end to family separations if measures fail to pass.

"This Executive Order doesn't fix the crisis", tweeted Sen.

President Donald Trump announced today that he would be signing an executive order "to keep families together".

For days, Trump and his top administration officials were unwilling to unilaterally reverse the separation policy and insisted that congressional action was required.

In the order, Trump directed Attorney General Jeff Sessions to request to modify a settlement past year over the enforcement of the Flores ruling and try to get the courts to allow families to be detained together. Neither, though, did it require parents to be kept in detention, apart from their children. "That would most likely violate the [settlement] agreement that limits the government's ability to keep children in detention and orders them to be placed in [the] least-restrictive setting possible".

What else did Trump order?

Both first lady Melania Trump and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen reportedly had roles in the changing course. "We are keeping the family together". Vice President Mike Pence added that they are calling upon Congress to change the laws.

"We will be going through Congress". He said he's concerned about over-use of the "a 4th-century technology" like a border wall and the decrease in legal immigration while companies are scrambling to find workers in a tight labor market.

George was also christened in the Chapel Royal, but Charlotte was baptised at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham. He is the youngest brother of Prince George and Princess Charlotte and is fifth in line to the British throne.

Further down the road, even if the House passes the farm bill, a collision with the Senate is certain; the upper chamber (where the bill was reported from the Agriculture Committee last week on a 20-1 vote) has pursued a bipartisan approach which largely rejected the lower chamber's partisan determination to mess with SNAP.

The abrupt action was reminiscent of Mr. Trump's decision in April 2017 to hold Syria's military accountable for a deadly chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of civilians, including small children who were shown on TV foaming at the mouth with lips turning blue.

"There will not be a grandfathering of existing cases", Wolfe said, according to The New York Times. The Justice Department does not have to prosecute parents who cross the border with their children.

The order also instructs the Secretary of Defense-i.e. the US military-to construct new facilities to jail parents with their children, "if necessary and consistent with law".

As children can not legally be jailed with their parents, they are kept in separate facilities. "Second, this executive order effectively creates family prisons, which we already know are a threat to the well-being of children".

In past administrations, most immigrant families were released while their immigration cases proceeded, and were not charged criminally for illegal entry if they didn't have prior criminal records. "Let's be clear: Trump is making a crisis of his own creation worse".

Without Democratic support, Republicans can not muster the 60 votes needed to move forward on legislation. Trump said his daughter, Ivanka, had told him the situation with the families looks bad, one lawmaker said.
