Will sign ‘something’ to keep families together

Will sign ‘something’ to keep families together

President Trump Wednesday afternoon signed an executive order ending family separation at the U.S. -Mexico border.

The president signed the order in the Oval Office just after 3 p.m. with Vice President Pence and Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, who has been the subject of intense criticism, present for the signing.

"Imagine if you'd been born in a country where you grew up fearing for your life, and eventually the lives of your children", Obama wrote.

He said the bill would prosecute those illegally crossing the border, and families would remain together during that time under the custody of Department of Homeland Security. Earlier this week, she uncharacteristically waded into the immigration debate, pushing for bipartisan cooperation to end the separation of migrant children from their parents at the border. Those people were not authorized to speak publicly and commented only on condition of anonymity. But Republicans said they were uncertain if either measure would have enough support to be approved. He said families would move to the head of the line for processing.

With this, he also called on Democrats for support. "There's no need for anything else", Senator Schumer said. "We are going to keep the families together".

President Donald Trump's immigration executive order attempts to solve one contentious action - the separation of families - but will bring back another - locking them up together indefinitely. "This is the only solution to the border crisis".

While Trump held firm to his tough immigration stance in an earlier appearance Tuesday, he acknowledged during the closed-door meeting that the coverage of family separations is taking a toll.

The president made the dramatic u-turn Wednesday afternoon amid a growing outcry over distraught children being separated from their families and put in detention centers.

Trump to meet Queen Elizabeth on UK visit, says US envoy
Britain's longest-serving monarch, who is now 92 years old, has met with nearly all serving USA presidents during her reign. Trump has always been a controversial figure in Britain and has called into question the state of U.S.

In a statement on Tuesday, the Michigan Department of Civil Rights denounced the Trump administration's zero tolerance immigration policy, which has resulted in the separation of migrant parents and children. Democrats are expected to vote against the bill but many Republicans, including a group of moderate lawmakers, are expected to vote for the bill. He introduced his own bill to speed up court proceedings to no more than 14 days.

Trump did not say what would happen to the steaks and other meats cooks had been pre-grilling at the White House in preparation for the picnic.

It was a dramatic turnaround for Trump, who has been insisting, wrongly, that his administration had no choice but to separate families apprehended at the border because of federal law and a court decision.

"Tomorrow the House will vote on legislation to keep families together", Ryan told reporters on Wednesday.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said Wednesday morning that the House will vote on immigration legislation, despite signs that the bills up for consideration can not pass.

"Beyond this one problem of immigration- you can mention the word "comprehensive" or you don't have to use it", Mr. Trump said.

The compromise bill in the House shifts away from the nation's longtime preference for family immigration to a new system that prioritizes entry based on merits and skills. The fact that includes fundamental changes to the legal immigration system mean its chances in the Senate are even more uncertain.
