  • Trump, with 'angel families' behind him, stresses need for hard-line immigration stance

Federal agencies announced plans late Saturday to reunite migrant children with their parents in a detention center in Texas.

Neither Obama nor Democrats created Trump's zero-tolerance policy, which calls for every illegal border crosser to be prosecuted and leads to their children being detained in separate facilities before being shipped to a shelter and eventually a sponsor family. The directive, though, did not apply to the more than 2,000 children being held by the Department of Health and Human Services. President Donald Trump twisted the media's attacks back on them. But confusion has ensued, with parents left searching for their children. Another 16 reunions scheduled for Friday were delayed because of weather affecting travel, but U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) said those reunions were expected to take place by the end of the weekend.

Trump's comments came two days after he signed an executive order to halt the separation of migrant children from their families. But under current law - what's known as the Flores settlement agreement - minors can't be detained for longer than 20 days. It's not clear if any of the 2,000 remaining children were taken into custody after 9 June. LUPE was a sponsor of the Saturday event.

Her spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham, told CBS News in a statement that the writing on Trump's jacket was not meant to send a message.

Rep. Jackie Speier of California, along with others, spoke out about the conditions of the facilities. They described seeing children sleeping behind bars, on concrete floors and under emergency "mylar" heat-resistant blankets.

"That is what they're claiming", Sen. Lawmakers are generally required to give two weeks' notice ahead of a facility visit.

She is calling on Congress to pass immigration legislation that secures the borders and keeps families together. About 9,000 such family units have been caught in each of the last three months, according to USA border authorities.

In its release, DHS noted that it is the parents' choice whether to be deported with their child, and that "in the past many parents have elected to be removed without their children".

In a follow-up tweet, Trump said immigration policy in the United States is "laughed at all over the world", and "is very unfair to all of those people who have gone through the system legally and are waiting on line for years!" He said VOICE, launched a year ago by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, was set up to help victims receive information on their perpetrators.

Children and workers are seen at a tent encampment on June 19, 2018 in Tornillo, Texas. The parents will be provided with a 1-800 number they will have to call to get more information about the whereabouts of their children.
