Trump reverses family separation policy after tech, political backlash

Trump Announces He Will Sign Executive Order To End Family Separations At Border Breaking: Trump announces he will sign an executive action to end family separation

President Trump signs executive order to keep families together; chief White House correspondent John Roberts reports from Washington.

While Trump has said he does not like seeing families separated, the practical impact of his executive order remains highly confusing, not least for some 2,300 children who have already been caught up in the "zero-tolerance" policy announced by the attorney general, Jeff Sessions, in April.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen says these are kids whose parents handed them over to smugglers and sent them on the perilous and illegal journey to the US alone.

"It is still very early and we are awaiting further guidance on the matter", Brian Marriott, a spokesman for the Health and Human Services Department's Administration for Children and Families.

The Executive Order misspelled the word "separation". "Our focus is on continuing to provide quality services and care to the minors in HHS/[Office of Refugee Resettlement] funded facilities and reunifying minors with a relative or appropriate sponsor as we have done since HHS inherited the program".

The Texas Civil Rights Project works to document the separations in the hopes of helping them reunite with the children.

She also said the groups want Walmart to denounce the Trump administration's policy and for its CEO to encourage President Donald Trump to rescind it immediately, something Trump said Wednesday he will do.

The news site claims that Trump was shown harrowing images from the site by daughter Ivanka, but he maintains that any solution should be taken by Congress.

The government plans to open a fourth shelter to house hundreds of young migrant children in Houston, where city leaders denounced the move Tuesday.

"We're not fooled by this bait and switch", said Archi Pyati, chief of policy at Tahirih Justice Center.

The more conservative bill would deny the chance of future citizenship to "Dreamers", who are immigrants brought illegally into the United States years ago as children. "Prison is no place for kids".

Japan beat 10-man Colombia in another World Cup upset
Thus far, the World Cup has been hard to predict, with some of the best teams falling to underdogs and confounding the experts. The search for the World Cup's most polite fans is down to two finalists: Japan and Senegal .


The money collected from more than 300,000 people in the United States and around the world will be given to the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, or RAICES, a Texas nonprofit that that offers free and low-priced legal services to immigrants. They don't care about lack of security.

He said he was looking into whether the court could block deportations of parents until they have been reunited with their children, and whether it could force the Trump administration to reunite those separated.

Nielsen went on to reiterate her previous warning that the federal government would prosecute people engaging in illegal activity at the border. One official said it was the Justice Department that generated the legal strategy that is codified in the executive order, and disputed the notion that Homeland Security was involved in drawing up the document. There now are three family detention centers with a total 2,700-bed capacity.

As of June 9, the three facilities had almost 2,600 of those beds occupied, according to the latest available ICE figures. ICE said it does not disclose capacity of those facilities because it is proprietary information held by the contractors. The language also leaves room to separate children from parents if it's best for the child's welfare. None of the White House messaging seemed to be helping.

What happens if the court refuses to overturn the Flores settlement? Both court officials and the DHS appear unsure about how family reunification will be achieved.

Trump said his immigration policy "continues to be zero tolerance".

"It's about keeping families together while at the same time making sure that we have a very powerful, very strong border", Mr Trump told reporters.
Do you know someone else we should interview for this story?

The attorney general directed the department to prosecute all illegal crossings.

"The real fault is with the parents", added Berry, who doesn't object to keeping children with their parents.

"We're not there yet, but we're working on it", she said.

He did not immediately provide details of the bill, but said that it resolves the issue of so-called Dreamers, undocumented adult migrants who entered the USA as children, "in a very elegant way".
