Trump backs down over family separations

Trump backs down over family separations

But having drifted into this disaster by way of an effort to prove to the Republican base once and for all that he was willing to get tough on the border, it won't be easy for Trump to execute a strategic retreat.

The person said Trump called the Justice Department Wednesday morning asking for the draft order.

They are also suing the government in the hope that a federal judge will stop family separations via a court order.

The policies of separating children from adults who are being prosecuted were in place during the Obama administration and date back to former president George W. Bush.

Trump didn't immediately elaborate on the order during remarks in a meeting with USA lawmakers at the White House attended by the press.

It all began with a new Trump administration policy, enacted in mid-April, to refer every person caught crossing the border illegally for federal prosecution, including those who arrive with children. "We're going to keep families together but we still have to maintain toughness or our country will be overrun by people, by crime, by all of the things that we don't stand for and that we don't want", Trump said. "There will not be a grandfathering of existing cases", Health and Human Services Department spokesperson Kenneth Wolfe said.

"As parents we refuse sit by while the government removes children from their parents at the USA border", the organizers said when they announced the event.

Also playing a role: First lady Melania Trump.

Again, it appears to be a reason why VAR may not have asked Roldan to take a second look. "They're really glad to have us here". Kane and England made the flawless start to the tournament as he tapped home from close range to score after just 11 minutes.

The Democratic mayor said he didn't know until that morning that such large numbers of children taken from their parents were being brought to NY.

Under a court settlement, the federal government can not hold the children for more than 20 days. If children are to be sent here he should demand paperwork connecting those children to a parent somewhere.

He continued to blame the Democrats for the policy, having previously said it is "their law" that causes separation at the border.

Trump's decision to relent was a reversal since he had gambled that he could use the plight of the children and public outrage to ram through his hardline changes to immigration police in legislation.

On Capitol Hill, Republicans were still debating what's being cast as a GOP compromise immigration bill.

The measure would also offer protections to another vulnerable group - Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients - who are undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children.

Americans alarmed about President Donald Trump's attacks on their basic democratic institutions need to look no further for evidence now than at the travesty occurring at southern ports of entry. And he may have slammed the door on a legislative fix with a single tweet. With the simple flick of the pen, a simple flick of the pen, the president can end this policy. "Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solves this decades old problem".
