Trump will reportedly support bill reversing child separation policy

The recording added to the growing disapproval of the Trump administration's policy of separating immigration children from their parents at the U.S. -Mexico border.

"Trump, the GOP Congress that refuses to stand up to him, and their followers" weak attempts to claim the "pro-life" and "pro-family' mantle dissolve in the face of this latest dictate", Hogue wrote in a column Monday night. We need borders. We need security.

But the network later reported that Trump could also take executive action. He did not elaborate. The family border policies were set by his administration.

"Thousands of children are being forcibly removed from their parents by our government".

Mr Schumer said with most Americans against family separations, it is Republicans "feeling the heat on this issue, and that's why they're squirming".

The Republican House compromise bill on immigration would end the family separation issue at the border - but Democrats won't support it.

"Who are these people?" asked Trump. "Can you imagine the graft that must take place?"

Tony Perkins, president of Family Research Council, whose mission is to create "a culture in which in which all human life is valued" and "families flourish", said the border situation is "tragic" for children, but it's not fair to blame the Trump administration. If you want to get people motivated, you've got to give them a reason to vote. "I don't want people coming in", he declared. "What we are saying today is President Trump, cease and desist", added the Democrat.

"In the name of the Mexican government and people, I want to express our most categorical and energetic condemnation of this cruel and inhuman policy", Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray said at a news conference.

US President Donald Trump has fired back after an outpouring of emotion over family separations at the United States border that has seen his government repeatedly compared to the Nazis.

The president went to the U.S. Capitol Tuesday evening to speak with the Republican Party conference of the House of Representatives.

While some Republicans working on this legislation have said it's important to address this issue in comprehensive immigration bills, other Republicans say the only realistic chance of fixing it is in a separate bill. In a CBS News poll, 67 percent of Americans say separating children from parents on the southern border is unacceptable. The measures would also create a path to citizenship for up to 1.8 million young immigrants already in the USA who were brought illegally by their parents. It is not clear that either piece of legislation has enough votes to win passage.

The bill mandates that the Department of Homeland Security hold any adult only charged with a misdemeanor who crossed the border with a child under age 18 with their child, at specific family detainment facilities.

Governors across the U.S. are now queuing up to say that they will not support the separations, with New York, Colorado and MA saying they will not provide troops to help secure the border - and Maryland recalling its soldiers.

Trump counselled that America must always arrest people coming into the country illegally; noting that, "Of the 12,000 children, 10,000 are being sent by their parents on a very unsafe trip, and only 2,000 are with their parents, many of whom have tried to enter our country illegally on numerous occasions".

In a tape obtained by ProPublica, a Border Agent jokes in Spanish: "Well, we have an orchestra here".
