Trump says will sign something 'pre-emptive' on immigration border policy

Trump had repeatedly defended his immigration crackdown, including forcibly separating migrant children from their parents after they crossed the border.

Given those figures, the centers would be full within eight days.

"I'll be signing something in a little while that's going to do that", Trump said during a Wednesday meeting with members of Congress at the White House, reports CBS News. That's what he did on Wednesday.

Under the administration's "zero-tolerance" policy introduced earlier this year, immigrant families who cross the border illegally are separated, with parents facing federal prosecution on illegal entry charges and children placed into the care of the Department of Health and Human Services.

The executive order does not overturn the administration's "zero-tolerance" policy, as Trump said during the Oval Office signing, but rather allows the Department of Homeland Security to maintain custody of undocumented families pending immigration proceedings.

The president directed the Department of Homeland Security to detain families together so long as children are not put into danger.

Some argued that the policy to separate parents and children isn't different than what happens to other criminals who are arrested or imprisoned.

For days, Trump and his top administration officials were unwilling to unilaterally reverse the separation policy, insisting that congressional action was required.

Trump, a frequent viewer of cable television newscasts, had recognized the family separation issue was a growing political problem, White House sources said. They were kept in separate facilities - described as cage-like - as their parents underwent legal process pending deportation back to their countries.

Assessments for possible detainee use have been done at three bases in Texas: Dyess Air Force Base, Goodfellow Air Force Base and Fort Bliss.

Also playing a role in the president's turnaround: First lady Melania Trump.

Nielsen traveled to Capitol Hill Wednesday afternoon to brief lawmakers.

Trump and others in the White House have made similar spelling errors in the past.

"So we're going to have strong - very strong borders, but we're going to keep the families together". Those people were not authorized to speak publicly and commented only on condition of anonymity.

This official says it was Nielsen urging some further action.

The House of Representatives planned to vote on Thursday on two bills created to halt the practice of separating families and to address other immigration issues.

"They really would like to have open borders where they can just flow in", Mr. Trump said of congressional Democrats. "Republicans want security. But I am working on something - it never ends!"

"The solution to family separation is not indefinite family detention", the organization said. Family units will be held together in detention facilities.

The "compromise" measure also includes a provision that aims to keep families together in immigration-detention facilities while parents are prosecuted criminally under the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy.

When asked specifically about the images of children being taken from their parents at immigration centers, Trump said that the images affected him. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said, "Seeing the images of the crime of separating thousands of children from their mothers in America makes a person exasperated".

The president said child smugglers, which he cited as a major reason behind that parent-child separation policy Tuesday, "use these children as passports to get into the country".

"The thought that any state would seek to deter parents by inflicting such abuse on children is unconscionable", al-Hussein said on Monday.
