As the focus on family separations at the Southern border intensifies, Speaker Paul D. Ryan declined Wednesday to say whether House Republicans would take up standalone legislation to prevent such separations at the border if their broader immigration bill addressing the issue fails. Some observations on that from various reporters: * Philip Rucker, Washington Post: Trump just said he will sign an executive order to effectively halt his administration's family separation policy.

Two people close to Nielsen said she was the driving force behind the turnabout that led to the new order keeping families together.

Officials say parents can use a hotline to find their kids, but immigrant advocates say not all people who are being detained are able to make the calls or get through from a foreign country if they've been deported.

But passage of the House bill remains in doubt even after President Donald Trump met with lawmakers this week to support an immigration fix.

The first lady has been working for several days behind the scenes, encouraging the President to keep families together, a White House official told CNN.

"The separations stem from the administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy, which aims to prosecute all illegal border crossers". Under the Obama administration, such families were usually referred for civil deportation proceedings, not requiring separation.

President Donald Trump's administration separated nearly 2,000 immigrant children from their parents at the border over the span of six weeks from mid-April through May.

Trump's family apparently played a role in his turnaround.

In recent days, we've heard the cries of preschoolers, howling for their moms and dads after being separated at the US-Mexico border. "There will not be a grandfathering of existing cases", Health and Human Services Department spokesperson Kenneth Wolfe said.

Under Trump's administration, the policy of separating families in order to detain adults has struck a nerve and generated an unprecedented political outcry.

Many of these "missing" children, however, may be with undocumented parents or relatives and now do not wish to be found by a government that they fear would deport them all. "But because of a 1997 order and related decisions, children can not be detained for longer than 20 days with the adults", writes Fox News. The decision did not state parents must be released.
