Trump also suggested in his comments on Tuesday that some of the problems are caused by child smugglers who have taken advantage of loopholes in USA immigration laws and that lawyers assisting asylum seekers are also gaming the system. He said, "The idea that there's an Executive Order to remedy this is perplexing because this administration created this policy of separating the family".

U.S. President Donald Trump, addressing what his administration has characterized as an unwanted side effect of his zero-tolerance policy on illegal immigration, signed an executive order on Wednesday (June 20) to keep families who illegally cross the U.S. southern border together as they await immigration proceedings.

Trump's "zero tolerance" policy refers all apprehended undocumented adults for criminal prosecution - a break with past administrations that limited criminal referral for most adults who illegally crossed into the US with their juvenile family members.

The government also plans to open a fourth shelter to house hundreds of young migrant children in Houston, where city leaders denounced the move Tuesday.

A White House official said first lady Melania Trump had been making her opinion known to the president for some time that she felt he needed to do all he could to help families stay together, whether by working with Congress or acting on his own.

Trump insisted to aides he take some type of formal action, despite the fact the separations could be ended without one, saying it was necessary he be seen as taking a decisive step rather than quietly reversing his own "zero-tolerance" policy that led to the crisis.

The EO includes a section titled "Temporary Detention Policy for Families Entering this Country Illegally". "No law says you must send babies to detention facilities". "It's a problem that's gone on for many years, as you know, through many administrations". "There was a huge backlash on this policy, and I think it got to the point where you didn't have a choice, he took it back, accepted the fact that he was responsible for it".

British Prime Minister Theresa May, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the Council of Europe and Pope Francis all took issue with the "zero tolerance" policy.

An offshoot of the policy was the separation of families that showed up at the border, since immigration officials are only allowed to hold families for 20 days before they have to be released. Children would be separated from adults who are not their parent or who have serious criminal records, or if there is evidence of abuse or trafficking.

The spectacular about-face comes after more than 2,300 children were stripped from their parents and adult relatives after illegally crossing the border since May 5 and placed in tent camps and other facilities, with no way to contact their relatives.

"I was welcomed here", a tearful Rep. Norma Torres, D-Calif., said during House debate, describing her journey to the U.S.as a child from Guatemala.

Later Wednesday, the HHS' families division's spokesman said Wolfe "misspoke". "They are promoting it, promoting psychological torture against these young children, and it's a scar not only on their lives but on the country we love".

While all participants in the meeting also agreed that their meeting was just the start of what is likely to be a series of long discussions and possible congressional hearings, the consensus among Democrats and Republicans was that beyond ending family separation, there was little consensus on which to build. This is a bill that the president supports. Both he and Sanders refused to comment on the existence of an executive order draft. However, a former ICE director has said some family separations are "permanent".

So far, the administration has not provided details on how it plans to unite the at least 2,000 children separated from their families.

Trump's order asks that families be housed together "where appropriate and consistent with law and available resources".

What does the executive order say? The text of the EO encourages Congress to act upon legislation that will maintain family unity so that the Administration will not need to separate families to enforce the law.

"We will be going through Congress".

Democrats "are conflicted", he said, because they "like the narrative" of blaming Trump for separating families.

More: What happens next for undocumented immigrant families? Several White House officials advised the President to accept a stand alone bill addressing family separations or some other solution to this issue.

Griffin, a pediatrician who has been caring for children detained on the border between Texas and the Mexican state of Chihuahua for ten years, told AFP the desperation of separated children. But House GOP leaders still were pulling out the stops to bring reluctant Republicans on board in hopes of resolving broader immigration issues ahead of the November midterm election.
