Trump supporters steadfast despite the immigration uproar

Trump supporters steadfast despite the immigration uproar

"We don't like to see families separated".

Speaking from the Oval Office at the White House, Trump said that he "didn't like the sight or the feeling" of the divided families. Under the Obama administration, such families were usually ordered back to their home country but not charged as a criminal.

Nothing in the executive order stops the government from releasing the whole family, Reid says, but under Attorney General Jeff Sessions' zero-tolerance policy, which states that the US will prosecute all who cross the border illegally, releasing the family is unlikely.

Lopez, 54, said Trump "really cares for the United States of America and the people of the United States of America and to protect us from people that want to hurt us".

Video footage of children sitting in cages and an audiotape of wailing children had sparked anger as the images were broadcast worldwide.

"She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart", the statement said.

White House officials, advocates and congressional leaders were blindsided Wednesday when word emerged that Trump was considering doing precisely what he'd forcefully claimed he couldn't do - act unilaterally to quell a growing humanitarian and political crisis.

"It continues to be a zero tolerance", Trump said Wednesday. My wife feels very strongly about it. I consider it to be a very important executive order.

The recent slump in friendly matches could be a blessing in disguise if it eradicates any complacency going into the World Cup . Tite's team selection has been to form a team that could be viewed as complete as opposed to an attacking or a defensive unit.

"His goal was not to rip families apart, I think his goal was to make Congress act on immigration reform", Pappas added. And it was the fault of Congress rather than Trump. Mr Trump reversed his own policy amid global fury over the separation of undocumented parents and children.

"Trump retreats because his family separation policy was evil, and because of you", Lieu said in a Twitter post on Wednesday night. However, it also creates a new legal headache for the administration over a 21-year-old class action settlement - known as the Flores settlement - mandating that families can be detained only for 20 days. Any attempt by the government to modify the agreement would likely face opposition from the lawyers who negotiated it, according to representatives of immigrant rights organizations. But, at least for the next few weeks, it would keep families together while they are in custody, expedite their cases and ask the Defense Department to help house them.

"His new executive order criminalizes asylum-seekers and seeks to indefinitely detain their children". Children don't belong in jail at all, even with their parents, under any set of circumstances. By taking executive action, the president is effectively acknowledging they were correct.

While the establishment media and Democrats have focused primarily on this tiny sample of child border crossers taken from the adults they traveled across the border with, the number of American children who have been separated from their parents is vastly higher.

Meanwhile, the document Trump signed won't reunite the more than 2,300 children now separated from their parents, whose plight Trump admitted privately this week was deeply damaging to him politically.

The executive order Trump signed requires the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to "maintain custody of alien families during the pendency of any criminal improper entry or immigration proceedings involving their members" to the extent the law permits and insofar as the department has funding. A senior Justice Department official said that hasn't changed. Many Republicans fear a backlash from the Republican base if they vote for the legislation and Trump turns against it. We are working very hard on immigration.

Passage of the bill was always a long shot, but failure may now come at a steeper price as Republicans - and Trump - have raised expectations that, as the party in control of Congress and the White House, they can fix the nation's long-standing immigration problems.

Both House bills, which Democrats and immigration advocacy groups oppose, would fund Trump's proposed wall and reduce legal migration, in part by denying visas for some relatives of USA residents and citizens living overseas. He did not immediately provide details of the bill, but said it resolves the issue of so-called Dreamers, undocumented adult migrants who entered the U.S. as children, "in a very elegant way".
