The public widely rejected Trump's family separation policy, polls found

Politicians visit border amid outrage on family separation

"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. "We should be encouraging families to stay together", Abramson said.

According to a White House official, US first lady Melania Trump "has been making her opinion known" to her husband that he needs to do whatever he can to keep families of migrants together.

Ryan took a group of wavering lawmakers to the White House to meet with Trump in hopes he could persuade them. The House of Representatives is due to vote on an immigration bill later this week that would limit family separations but allocate $25 billion for a US-Mexico wall, which was promised in Trump's presidential campaign.

US President Donald Trump has bowed to public pressure and signed an executive order promising to "keep families together" in migrant detentions.

The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a government agency that apprehends illegal immigrants, told Hindustan Times: "Based on information obtained by the US Border Patrol at the time of apprehension, it appears that seven detainees now housed at Sheridan may have been separated from family members".

The news in recent days has been dominated by searing images of children held in cages at border facilities, as well as audio recordings of young children crying for their parents - images that have sparked fury, questions of morality and concern from Republicans about a negative impact on their races in November's midterm elections.

"I didn't like the sight or the feeling of families being separated", said Trump.

It remains unclear what the exactly the executive action will say. "When you prosecute the parents for coming in illegally, which should happen, you have to take the children away", Trump said.


Both Republican bills in the House, which Democrats and immigration advocacy groups have blasted, would fund Trump's border wall and reduce legal migration, in part by denying visas for some relatives of US residents and citizens who are living overseas, sometimes referred to as "chain migration".

"Today's order is likely to just have the effect of jailing families who are seeking safety for months or years", Tumlin said.

Deportees who arrived in Honduras on Thursday told Reuters that before their flight left from Texas, U.S. officials asked if any of them had children in detention, and the four who raised their hands were not put o the flight.

As Gutierrez spoke, his microphone was cut off because lawmakers and children gathered around him as he spoke. Presiding Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., gaveled the House to order.

At the same time, we are keeping a very powerful border and it continues to be a zero-tolerance.

Trump told Republicans during a closed-door meeting Tuesday night that he would support them "1,000 percent" on immigration but did not specifically back either bill.

"We have seen no information so far on reunification plans and procedures", the person said. He announced the postponement as he sat down at the White House with Republican members of the House and Senate. Theirs is narrow legislation proposed by Sen. "To have your child torn from your arms - children separated from their parents - it causes irrevocable damage". He noted that the administration would still be working with Congress to find a legislative fix to the immigration problem.

Trump has accused Democrats of provoking the current crisis by blocking bills to combat illegal immigration. Feinstein and Cruz have been in talks about a possible compromise.
