Mayor learns more than 200 separated migrant children in NYC

Mayor learns more than 200 separated migrant children in NYC

A Reuters/Ipsos national opinion poll released on Tuesday showed fewer than one in three American adults supporting the policy. It also directs the attorney general to seek to modify a 21-year-old settlement agreement that stipulates that the government can not hold minors in immigration detention for more than 20 days. Immigration cases typically take much longer than that.

"We're going to have strong - very strong - borders, but we are going to keep the families together", Trump said moments before signing the order at a White House event.

In 2015, a federal judge in Los Angeles expanded the terms of the settlement, ruling that it applies to children who are caught with their parents as well as to those who come to the US alone.

Currently, Nielsen's department must transfer them to the Department of Health and Human Services after 72 hours if they are unaccompanied, or release them after 20 days if they're with parents or other caregivers. "We're going to try to see if we can fix it". While the administration will continue prosecuting crimes of "improper entry", the administration will "maintain family unity, including by detaining alien families together where appropriate and consistent with law and available resources", according to the order's text.

President Donald Trump displays an executive order on immigration policy after signing it in the Oval Office, June 20, 2018. It also calls into question numerous administration's recent claims about the basis of the "zero tolerance" policy that was announced by Attorney General Jeff Sessions in April.

They also said families facing lengthy detention under the new executive order will be able to sue the Trump administration outside of the Flores framework.

O'Reilly - a friend of the president and someone Mr. Trump used to watch regularly on Fox News - has tweeted his concerns about the policy in recent days. They want open borders, which breeds disgusting crime.

GOP lawmakers, increasingly fearful of a voter backlash in November, are struggling to find a way out of the problem created by the Trump administration's policy of treating all immigrants who cross the border in criminal, rather than civil, proceedings that result in family separations.

Trump's wife was among those urging him to reverse course.

More than 50 people pushed strollers through the streets of Newark and gathered in front of the federal building where more than a dozen mothers breastfeed their babies Friday in a "Nurse-in" to protest the Trump administration's treatment of immigrant families.

"It's about keeping families together", Trump said at the signing ceremony.

Democrats said the images of children being held in cages in border facilities, some crying for their parents, would be a moment remembered in USA history.

The President also said he would be canceling the congressional picnic scheduled for Thursday because it didn't feel right to go on as scheduled. "I think everybody believes that".

This ordeal is proof that Trump will literally do anything that Republicans support, and Republicans will support anything that Trump does. "We have many things that are important".

Barack Obama was President of the United States from 2008 to 2016.

"What we have done today is we are keeping families together", Trump said as he signed the executive order. Obama said in a statement posted on Facebook. He specifically criticized the president's use of the term "chain migration" to describe the long-standing US policy of allowing USA citizens to assist relatives overseas in obtaining legal residency.
