Trump signs order ending family separation policy

Seeing images of'Tender Child detention centers reportedly played a role in President Trump signing an Executive Order reversing his migrant family separation policy

U.S. first lady Melania Trump speaks at a roundtable meeting as she visits the Lutheran Social Services of the South "Upbring New Hope Children's Center" near the U.S. -Mexico border in McAllen Texas, U.S., June 21, 2018.

In fact, according to The Washington Post's count, the Trump administration changed its story on family separation at least 14 times.

The announcement Thursday implies that Border Patrol will hold onto the children until their parents return from court proceedings and then send them to detention together.

While adults await legal processing and prosecution, their children are put in the custody of a division of the Health and Human Services Department.

Sitting with officials at a center in McAllen, Texas, she said: 'How can I help these families reunite with their children as quickly as possible?'

Mrs. Trump, whose focus as first lady is on child well-being, appears to have been among those pushing her husband to act.

Trump said Thursday he was directing federal agencies to come up with a way to reunite separated immigrant children with their parents.

"She wanted to see everything for herself", Grisham said.




"The Democrats are saying they care about the kids, they care about the DACA kids, they care about family separation, but when they're asked to vote and work together on a compromise, they're nowhere to be found", said Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va. He says staff have "a tremendous passion for working with these children" and the center is "their home".

'We don't like to see families separated.

The New York Times reported that though the order has been made, there were still no plans for the reunion of the children who have already been separated from their families.

"It's a jacket", Stephanie Grisham, Melania Trump's spokeswoman, told reporters.

The first lady's unannounced visit came a day after President Donald Trump - in a stunning about-face - moved to end the practice of splitting migrant families, which had prompted outrage at home and overseas.

The California Democrat asked the U.N.to investigate operations under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of Refugee Resettlement at the border and "throughout the more than 17 states around the country that are now housing children who have been separated from their families".

Trump's solution is to imprison parents and children together.

In Texas, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti described uncertainty about access to legal representation for immigrant families and maximum holding periods for those accused of illegally crossing the border. After widespread public protest and bipartisan criticism, the president signed an executive order Wednesday afternoon ending the practice.
