Trump to sign executive order to end family separations at the border

  • Trump Is Fixing Another Democrat Problem

Former US President, Barack Obama on Wednesday demanded an end to Donald Trump administration's policy of separation of migrant children from parents at the US-Mexico border.

Trump's order also seeks to modify the terms of the latest settlement on the 1997 Flores case, which prohibits the government from keeping migrant children in detention for more than 20 days.

The order comes on the heels of repeated efforts by the Trump administration to double down on its "zero-tolerance" policy aimed of separating children from their parents at the border, which Sessions claimed is justified in the Bible-earning him widespread rebuke. The order aims to keep families together while they are in custody, expedite their cases, and ask the Department of Defense to help house families. It also authorizes up to $7 billion for family residential centers, ensuring DHS has access to funds to house more families.

When US couple Charlotte and Dave Willner saw the photo, they started a Facebook fund-raising page on Saturday to collect money for the Refugee and Immigrant Centre for Education and Legal Services, a non-profit organisation that provides low-priced legal defence services to immigrant and refugee families in Texas. Both, to varying degrees, would have fulfilled Trump's priorities on immigration, but neither has enough support to get even a majority of Republicans on board.

PGA Tour makes Minnesota stop official for 2019
The PGA Tour is also adding an event in Detroit for 2019 , which will likely wind up in the other vacant spot on the schedule. Cavner said tickets for the PGA Tour event will be "reasonably priced" and children will be admitted free.

Wednesday's executive order did not end the administration's "zero tolerance" policy.

The action came after a firestorm of protest from administration opponents and allies, reacting to pictures and sounds of young children traumatized by their separation from their parents at the hands of US authorities. A leading figure among them - Reverend Franklin Graham - called family separation "disgraceful".

However, the order contains an ill-defined stipulation that some children might be exempt: "The Secretary shall not, however, detain an alien family together when there is a concern that detention of an alien child with the child's alien parent would pose a risk to the child's welfare". Upon leaving that meeting, Sessions said he had been "working with the White House and others all morning" on the family separation issue.

U.S. immigration officials say 2342 children were separated from 2206 parents between 5 May and 9 June. "I can't imagine what the families living through this are enduring". The new order means that immigrant families will still be prosecuted for entering the country illegally, though now they will be detained together "indefinitely" at facilities that still may need to be built, as The New York Times reports. The administration still has no real plans to address that financial and logistical problem before locking up immigrants, including asylum seekers. But immigration advocates criticize that move as allowing a more indefinite detention of families until criminal and removal proceedings are completed, signaling legal battles ahead. It also doesn't change anything yet for the some 2,300 children taken from their families since the policy was put into place. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said his department will start reuniting detained immigrant children with their parents - but he made no specific commitment on how quickly that can be accomplished. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said, "Seeing the images of the crime of separating thousands of children from their mothers in America makes a person exasperated".
