Separating families only way to end illegal migration, says Trump

Stop breaking up families at the border

"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.

U.S. Senators Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander of Tennessee each issued statements Monday decrying the Trump administration policy of separating children detained at the U.S./Mexico border from their parents.

The person said the secretary believes there is little certainty that Congress will act to fix the separation issue that has been dominating news coverage and she is trying to find a solution. She was at the White House where Trump told reporters he would be "signing something" shortly.

Women from various faith organizations protested in front of Immigration and Customs Enforcement headquarters Tuesday morning to stop the separation of children from their parents after crossing the border illegally. "Go for it! WIN!"

The president said his wife, Melania, and daughter, Ivanka, who reportedly have been applying pressure on him to drop the policy in recent days, "feel strongly" about ending the practice of separating migrant families.

"There are now 239 children right here as a result of the Trump administration's family separation policy", he said.

"We're having a lot of problems with Democrats that don't want to vote for anything", he said.

Videos of youngsters in cages and an audiotape of wailing children had sparked anger in the United States from groups ranging from clergy to influential business leaders, as well as condemnation from overseas, including Pope Francis.

Trump said during a White House meeting with members of Congress that, "We want to keep families together". The move comes amid outrage over reports of immigrant children being permanently separated from their parents and sent to separate detention facilities.

Speaking at a business convention, Trump said children have to be taken away if their parents are jailed for illegally crossing the U.S. border. Children would only be separated from their parents if their safety is at risk.

President Trump doubled-down on his pledge to stem the flow of illegal immigrants into the United States Tuesday, saying his administration will do everything it can to "arrest people" entering the U.S. without valid paperwork.

The Trump administration has been charging people with crimes even if they cross the border and claim asylum.

Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, who has been a strong ally of Trump and initially supported the zero-tolerance policy, backed off yesterday.

America's top law official told Fox News the "zero tolerance" policy was about enforcing border security.
