Donald Trump to end policy separating migrant kids from their parents

President Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday reversing the separation policy

President Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday reversing the separation policy

"There's no reason to separate the kids from their mothers and fathers". The news in recent days has been dominated by searing images of children held in cages at border facilities, as well as audio recordings of young children crying for their parents. "But right now we want to fix this problem and I think we'll be able to do that". "We are keeping a very powerful border and it continues to be - we continue to have a zero-tolerance policy".

Trump has been trying to win over Congressional support on immigration amid a crisis along the border involving the separation of immigrant children from their families. "We also don't want families who are fleeing for their lives to be sent back into the burning house that they've escaped from, and we also don't want America to be a place where you can't get a fair shot in a life-and-death decision". We want to keep families together'. We have to be able to do this.

Most of the more than 10,000 children in shelters under HHS care came to the USA alone and are waiting to be placed with family members living in the U.S.

There are questions now about what Homeland Security will do with the families that cross over, and also how the government will reunite children with families.

Republicans in the Senate are supporting more narrow legislation that would let detained families stay together while expediting their deportation proceedings.

"I don't want children taken away from parents", Trump said on Tuesday during a speech at a National Federation of Independent Businesses event in Washington DC, reported BBC. "You started it, you can stop it".

Critics slammed the offer, announced on Russian social media , as sexist and demeaning. "It turned out to be too insulting.

Widespread outrage over the separations has given Republicans cause for concern in an election year.

Mr Sessions announced a "zero-tolerance" policy to criminally charge and jail undocumented border crossers.

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

The house speaker denied claims that children are being used as leverage when it comes to immigration.

The images have caused anger toward the practice and pressure on the Trump administration to change its policy. "This is in my state of Florida".

Trump, who has made a tough stance on immigration a centrepiece of his presidency, has sought to link an end to the family separations to passage of a wider bill on immigration that would include funding for his long-sought border wall with Mexico.
