Trump to sign decree to end migrant family separations

  • Melania Trump speaks out about migrants

Even as Trump sought to use that furor as leverage for a demand for comprehensive immigration legislation (which is very clearly doomed in the Senate), pressure quickly mounted among Republicans in both chambers of Congress to do some sort of quick fix for the family separation issue-or better yet, for the administration to just stop taking children away from their parents for the moment.

French far-right leader Marine Le Pen, who in the past has praised Mr Trump's policy of curbing immigration, told French TV that she disagreed with splitting children from parents.

The senator's bill would add more federal immigration judges, authorize new temporary shelters to house migrant families, speed the processing of asylum cases and require that families that cross the border illegally be kept together, absent criminal conduct or threats to the welfare of any children. The real question, he said, was whether "people want to play politics, or do we want to put people before politics?" But after signaling Monday that it would oppose any fix aimed exclusively at addressing that issue, the White House said Tuesday it was reviewing the emergency legislation being introduced by Cruz to keep migrant families together. He has resisted calls to reverse the separation policy, saying any change must come through Congress. I can truthfully say that a little fact-checking goes a long way in weeding out lies.

The president took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to again falsely blame Democrats for his policy - but also hinted at a possible compromise. Said Trump: "Politically correct or not, we have a country that needs security, that needs safety, that has to be protected".

To quote Trump himself, "We could have an immigration bill". "I think the language is changing on that". "This is why America elected him", Bannon said.

But while 66 percent in a Quinnipiac poll say they oppose the family separation policy, 55 percent of Republicans are backing Trump's stance.

"He said, 'Politically, this is bad, '" said Rep.

Trump officials have suggested that migrants are coached to invent stories of gang-related threats, and that separating families could deter people from starting risky journeys to the USA border. With few powerful opposing voices remaining in the West Wing, Trump is increasingly making these decisions solo.

"It could be a tough deterrent - would be a tough deterrent", Trump Chief of Staff John Kelly told NPR during a May 11 interview shortly after Sessions' announcement.

Trump defiant as outrage over family separations grows
He did say he supported 'the bill.' He just doesn't - he's not specific, you know, he does things his own way", retiring Rep. After his remarks, the president raised eyebrows by walking across the stage, arms outstretched, and embracing a U.S. flag.


To address the rise of families being separated at the border, the measure proposes keeping children in detention with their parents, undoing 2-decade-old rules that limit the time minors can be held in custody.

"I do not believe that the government should be separating families and children at the border", Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) said.

According to a recent Quinnipiac poll, while 91% of Democrats and 68% of independents oppose separating asylum-seekers and others in the U.S. illegally from their children, 55% of Republicans support it. Detention under the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy is mandatory, without the possibility of being released on bond.

Trump had tweeted earlier Wednesday that he was "working on something".

Usually the adults serve a few days in jail, plead guilty to illegal entry charges, are sentenced to the time they already served, and are released back into the immigration system.

Carroll's wife complained that media reports about traumatized children and babies were emotionally manipulative. "We have one chance to get it right".

On Tuesday, Trump argued that sticking by his policies was a winning political strategy as he took a fresh shot at Democrats.

He suggested that the Democrats can't win on their "terrible policies", and that "they view illegal immigrants "as potential voters".
