In a televised roundtable with members of Congress, Senators and members of his adminstration, Trump announced: "we're going to be signing an executive order. we're going to keep families together, but we still have to maintain toughness or our country is going to be overrun". "We have zero tolerance for people who enter our country illegally", he said.
"We have no reassurance that the families that have been ripped apart - that those kids are going to be reunited and that this Administration is taking responsibility for its actions", she said.
Trump pointed to those images in his meeting, saying theyd "affect everybody" but that he was torn. "I think anybody with a heart would feel very strongly about it".
President Trump also tweeted at 10:41 A.M. ET on Wednesday that the situation was "Democrats ['] fault", but that he was "working on something". He called them "extremist open-border Democrats".
But the executive order contains no language addressing how these children will be reunited with their parents, and Kenneth Wolfe, a spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services' Administration for Children and Families, said Wednesday no changes are in store to the agency's normal procedures.

Trump quickly reversed course to back the bill and swooped into the Capitol for a late huddle on Tuesday (Wednesday NZT) with Republicans.
The Flores settlement, named for a teenage girl who brought the case in the 1980s, requires the government to release children from custody and to their parents, adult relatives or other caretakers, in order of preference. The actions left parents with little or no information about where their children were being taken or when or how they would be reunited.
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 USA authorities.
Despite Trump's executive order, a host of unanswered questions remain, including what will happens to the children who were already separated from their parents and where the government will house all the newly detained migrants, with the system already bursting at the seams.
