Trump’s executive order on family separations: 3 things it doesn’t do

Share

Hours before signing his executive order, Mr Trump again blamed the opposition Democratic Party for the situation at the USA border with Mexico. But if the children are granted asylum or another type of protection allowing them to stay in the US, it would be hard for deported parents to get their children back. Orrin Hatch of Utah, wrote the Trump administration asking it to pause the separation of immigrant families until Congress comes up with a solution. That's what he did on Wednesday. During the signing, Trump said, "the border is just as tough, but we want to keep families together".

The action, according to people familiar with it, wouldnt end the zero tolerance policy, but would aim to keep families together.

US President Donald Trump has aggressively defended his policy of separating children from their parents at the Mexico border, accusing the migrants of "infesting" the country, media reports said.

Justice Department lawyers had been working to find a legal workaround for a previous class-action settlement that set policies for the treatment and release of unaccompanied children who are caught at the border.

"Congress and the courts created this problem, and Congress alone can fix it", Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said earlier this week.

At a brief announcement at the White House, Trump did not provide further details on how families would be kept together or how detentions would be handled going forward. Nielsen was heckled at a restaurant Tuesday evening and has faced protesters at her home.
