Trump says he will sign something 'pre-emptive' on immigration

President Trump told pool reporters at the White House he will be signing an executive order Wednesday afternoon to change current zero tolerance policies for illegal aliens who cross the border with children.

Nine US states are to join Washington in filing a lawsuit against the Trump administration over a policy of separating immigrant families illegally entering the United States.

In McAllen, Texas, for example, federal prosecutors unexpectedly declined to charge 17 parent immigrants on Thursday, with one saying "there was no prosecution sought" due to Trump's executive order aimed at keeping families together. "But we do want to keep families together", Trump said in the Oval Office.

Ms Nielsen is understood to be going to the White House to discuss the border problems with Mr Trump's team.

The top Republican in the US Congress said: "We do not want children taken away from their parents".

"As parents we refuse sit by while the government removes children from their parents at the USA border", the organizers said when they announced the event.

Both first lady Melania Trump and Nielsen reportedly had roles in the changing course.

They will face each other on Monday in Samara with first place in Group A on the line. "That's what I know". But they were outmatched by the Uruguayan defence and were under regular threat from Suarez and Cavani.

The policy had led to a spike in family separations in recent weeks, with more than 2,300 minors were separated from their families at the border from May 5 through June 9, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

I also liked the quick statement from Democracy for America: "Donald Trump's disgusting attempt to appear heroic by signing an executive order to temporarily end a policy of systematic child abuse that he pushed for, enabled, and excused is one of the vilest, politically-craven moves we've seen in the history of American politics".

The Flores settlement, named for a teenage girl who brought the case in the 1980s, requires the government to release children from custody and to their parents, adult relatives or other caretakers, in order of preference. Children can't be jailed with their parents.

The measure would also offer protections to another vulnerable group - Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients - who are undocumented immigrants brought to the USA as children.

Senate Minority Leader Senator Chuck Schumer said the Trump administration has been sending babies and young children to what they call "tender age facilities".

This is counter to what the Trump administration and the president himself has argued, claiming the president's hands were tied and that Congress only had the power to stop the separation of families. "Bottom line is this: We are going to take action to keep families together while we enforce our immigration laws".

Under a court settlement, the federal government can not hold the children for more than 20 days.
