In reversal, Trump orders halt to his family separation rule

Immigration advocates and legal experts say there is no clear system in place to reunite families who've been separated by&nb

President Donald Trump is misrepresenting the scope of his executive order that would halt his administration's policy of separating children from their parents when they are detained illegally crossing the US border.

The order states that family incarceration will continue under Trump and instructs the DOJ to attempt to "modify" the 1997 Flores settlement, which says that the federal government is legally obligated to seek alternatives to the jailing of children in immigrant detention centers.

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.

While the order would keep families together, it is unclear how officials will be able to navigate the legal constraints on the appropriate treatment of children under government custody, according to the report. "But we have to do more than say 'this isn't who we are.' We have to prove it - through our policies, our laws, our actions, and our votes".

Prior to Trump's remarks, White House aides refused to comment on rumors of an executive order and Republicans on Capitol Hill seemingly had no knowledge of a coming executive action.

The 2016 ruling made it "much more hard for the federal government to use the detention authorities Congress gave it", DHS said . Trump , speaking to reporters at the White House, said he hoped his measure would be matched with legislation in the U.S.

The ICC also announced the creation of a 13-team one-day global (ODI) league. Playing at the MCG is one of the sport's most hallowed traditions.

The order does not end the "zero-tolerance" policy that criminally prosecutes all adults caught crossing the border illegally. The administration had separated at least 2,000 families in the past six weeks. But concurrently, organizers are already planning to take their message of support for separated families to Washington, D.C. on June 30, as well as via coordinated rallies across the country.

A potential executive order could emerge as a fallback option for the administration if it wants to alleviate the crisis should the House bill not pass - but talk that it is a possibility seems likely to undermine momentum for Republican senators to take a tough immigration vote.

He continued to blame the Democrats for the policy, having previously said it is "their law" that causes separation at the border.

Pope Francis also joined the public outcry, telling Reuters he agreed with US Catholic bishops that separating children from their parents at the border was "immoral". It would also end the diversity-visa lottery program, which makes eligible 55,000 people for entry each year from countries that are underrepresented, and cut the family-based visa program.

Under previous U.S. administrations, immigrants caught crossing the border for the first time tended to be issued with court summonses and released. Most of the more than 10,000 children in shelters under HHS care came to the US alone and are waiting to be placed with family members living in the U.S. "If parents are still being prosecuted as criminals and put in prisons, they will be separated from their children". 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. "Bill O'Reilly said this is bad". Hatch and 12 other GOP senators - including John McCain, R-Arizona, and Lamar Alexander, R-Tennessee, - co-signed a letter on Tuesday to the Justice Department asking that the administration pause the separation of families until Congress addresses the issue. About two dozen House members went to the White House for a meeting on the bill.
