Where do kids split from parents go?

In order to hold families together indefinitely, it directs Attorney General Jeff Sessions to try to modify a 1997 court agreement, known as the Flores settlement, that prohibits the federal government from keeping children, even with their parent, in immigration detention for more than 20 days.

"We're going to have strong, very strong borders, but we're going to keep the families together", said Trump who said he didn't like the "sight" or "feeling" of children separated from their parents.

Obama commented on the issue after the White House signaled Trump's decision to issue an executive order to keep detained families of illegal immigrants together.

After children are released to a parent or relative, guardians must make sure the kids attend immigration court hearings and check in regularly with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

He pointed out that all Americans "were strangers once" and that they crossed the Atlantic, the Pacific or the Rio Grande and "this country welcomed them in". We can either release all illegal immigrant families and minors who show up at the border from Central America or we can arrest the adults for the federal crime of illegal entry.

Republicans were scrambling to update their approach ahead of a visit from Trump, who called earlier in the day for Congress to approve what he called a third option to address the family separations.

"That's the reality for so numerous families whose plights we see and heart-rending cries we hear".

GOP lawmakers, increasingly fearful of a voter backlash in November, are struggling to find a way out of the problem created by the Trump administration's policy of treating all immigrants who cross the border in criminal, rather than civil, proceedings that result in family separations. She has had several private conversations with her husband, pushing him to do all he can to keep families at the border intact, whether via a legislative route, or acting alone to stop the process, the official said.

As children can not legally be jailed with their parents, they are kept in separate facilities.

He said the action "ultimately will be matched by legislation" after House Speaker Paul Ryan announced the House will vote Thursday on legislation to end the practice. This bill will prohibit the Department of Homeland Security from separating parents and children taken into custody within 100 miles of the border except for narrow cases involving abuse or neglect.

US President Donald Trump says "we are keeping families together" after outrage in the US and overseas over the separation of 2,300 minors from their families since May 5.

But the directive may violate a 2008 law that require special handling of migrant children who must be transferred from Nielsen's department to the Department of Health and Human Services after 72 hours.

Critics of the administration's zero-tolerance policy say that it's not only cruel to split families up, but also unjust to not have a mechanism in place to get them back together.

Bush wrote in the Washington Post: "I live in a border state". And members on the fence over pending immigration legislation headed to the White House to meet with Trump.

Cruz's bill would double the number of federal immigration judges, authorize new temporary shelters to house migrant families and limit the processing of asylum cases to no more than 14 days - a goal immigrant advocates say would be hard to meet. It said HHS personnel or contractors for HHS "will provide all care for the children", including supervision, meals, clothing, medical services, transportation and other daily needs.
