Today in Trump's Prison Camps for Children: White House Ignores Their Cries

Donald Trump's family separations bedevil GOP as public outrage grows

Donald Trump's family separations bedevil GOP as public outrage grows

The policy of separating children from their parents who have illegally entered the US and been detained had existed for years before President Donald Trump took office.

Since the time of that tweet and the clip below, Trump has said that he will be "signing something" shortly. She was at the White House where Trump told reporters he would be "signing something" shortly.

The president said child smugglers, which he cited as a major reason behind that parent-child separation policy Tuesday, "use these children as passports to get into the country".

Until Wednesday, the president, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and other officials had repeatedly argued the only way to end the practice was for Congress to pass new legislation, while Democrats said he could do it with his signature alone. "Go for it! WIN!"

Trump's "zero tolerance" policy refers illegal immigrants to criminal prosecution, separating parents and children into different areas of custody, as opposed to the Obama administration policy of referring families to civil deportation.

Mr Trump had defended the policy, saying he would not allow the U.S. to become a "migrant camp", but he had recognised the issue was a growing political problem, according to White House sources.

Calling the measure "somewhat preemptive", he also called on Congress to work toward a more permanent fix.

In the last couple of days I've not dropped serve. "I'm happy I have a chance to come back and play some more good tennis". The second set was again tight as both players' serve dominated on the grass court but Federer edged it on a tie-break.

However, Democrats and some Republicans have said Trump could end the policy himself.

Videos of youngsters in cages and an audiotape of wailing children have sparked anger at home from groups ranging from clergy to influential business leaders, as well as condemnation from overseas.

Almost 2,000 minors have been separated from their families since Sessions announced the policy in April.

Mr Trump's own Republican Party, meanwhile, had been working on legislation to will allow families detained at the US-Mexico border to stay together, speaker of the House of Representatives Paul Ryan said.

Trump is meeting Republican lawmakers later to discuss a bill that proposes to curb the policy.

"I'd love to see immigration reform, we've been talking about it for a long time - there's a bipartisan bill filed in the U.S. Congress, so if he's so concerned he can take up the bill", Walsh added.

Even some of the president's biggest Republican supporters said they disagree with his policy. They want open borders, which breeds disgusting crime. More than 2,300 minors were taken from their parents between early May and early June, according to statistics from the Department of Homeland Security.
