    Trump signs executive order to stop family separations at border

    Trump signs executive order to stop family separations at border

    President Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order to allow children to stay with parents caught crossing the border illegally -- moving to stop the family separations that have triggered a national outcry and political crisis for Republicans.

    The measure would allow children to stay in detention with parents for an extended period of time. This comes as congressional Republicans scramble to draft legislation to address the same issue, but face challenges mustering the votes.

    In signing the measure, Trump said he wants to keep families together while also enforcing border security. He vowed his administration's "zero tolerance" policy for illegal immigration would continue.

    Trump, previewing the measure earlier in the day during a meeting with lawmakers, said the move would "be matched by legislation." He also said he's canceling the upcoming congressional picnic, adding: "It didn't feel exactly right to me."

    The separations stem from the administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy, which aims to prosecute all illegal border crossers. But because of a 1997 order and related decisions, children cannot be detained for longer than 20 days with the adults.

    Nope, the dems are going to be pissed; they want the all released. It's all about two things: 1. Flooding the US with ignorant low wage people who will depend on welfare and will always vote for Democrat Santa. 2. Use this as a way to distract from the corruptions we are seeing and to use to run on; that have nothing else.
