Trump signs executive order halting the separation of families on the U.S.-Mexico border

President Donald Trump under an executive order signed, to the separation of families after they went to the United States illegally.

Democrats expressed concerns Wednesday by President Trump’s executive order, which will allow parents to stay over the US border illegally with their children. The move, some Democrats argued, just illegal immigrants “for an indefinite period of time.”

The order of trump signed allows children to remain in detention with their parents for a longer period of time. It does not mean the end of the “zero tolerance policy”, the prosecuted adults in the country without proper documentation.

TO STOP TRUMP CONSIDERS EXECUTIVE ORDER OF THE FAMILY SEPARATIONS ON THE BORDER

Trump came to the job after he and other officials said repeatedly that only Congress had the power to stop, the children and their parents separately.

Sen Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Wednesday tweeted that the executive order “only replaces, the act inhumane.”

“In response to the overwhelming public outrage about his politics, tearing the children from their parents at the border, this government thinks that the appropriate response is to indefinitely detain families,” said Sanders.

The senator said he “hope … the courts will step in take the reins, in these illegal actions.”

I am optimistic that, as we have seen, with other racist and xenophobic Trump policy, the courts step-by-step in the reins on these illegal actions.

Democratic sen Dianne Feinstein, of California, shared similar feelings, tweeting: “It is extremely troubling that the President would be required by the executive order, the immigrant families with children in detention for an indefinite period of time.”

It is extremely troubling that the President would be required by the executive order, the immigrant families with children in detention for an indefinite period of time. The contract appears to eliminate the next step in the Trump administration’s larger agenda, the basic protection for asylum-seekers.

“This Executive Order fix the crisis,” Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., wrote. “For an indefinite period of time for the detention of children with their families in camps is inhumane and not that we may be sure.”

This Executive Order in any way, the *two thousand and three hundred* children, which deals with the re-unification, and torn from their parents and stay separately. When are you going to see your parents again? You need to be United, immediately.

Republican sen. Marco Rubio, however, tweeted that the children of immigrants are among the prisoners in the U.S. “‘is infinite & without discrimination’ … is just PATENTLY FALSE.” He argues that the use of the term “unlimited detention” is “disingenuous.”

Some Democrats now are also the ” insincere “unlimited detention” term. You know very well that those who are illegal in the US held for an indefinite period of time. You are entitled to a hearing process & our new law to accelerate further judge this process.

Just colleague on the floor, heard the Senate say US attacks the children of immigrants, “for an indefinite period of time indiscriminately”. This is just PATENTLY FALSE. You are entitled to the hearing procedure so is not unlimited. And for those, the US-illegal, so its not random.

The extracts come from the administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy, with the aim of illegal border crossers. The policy of moving adult in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service and sends many children to lead facilities through the Department of Health and Human Services.

The policy had led to a spike in the family, separations, separated in the last few weeks, with more than 2,300 minors from their families, at the border of 5. May to June 9, according to the Department of Homeland Security

Trump said Wednesday that while “we have strong, very strong boundaries … we stick together families.”

Children may not be detained for a 1997 order and the related decisions, more than 20 days with the adults. A Senior Justice Department official told The Associated Press, that has not changed.
