Trump's immigration order replaces one crisis with another

Trump's immigration order replaces one crisis with another”

The order aims to end the separation of most migrant families by detaining them together while they await their court dates in criminal and immigration court.

- The issue is likely to end up in court again.

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said he supported the executive order.

The announcement came after his administration was besieged from all sides over the policy, launched in early May, to arrest anyone crossing the border illegally. The new Trump policy, unveiled Wednesday, involves keeping families detained together for an indefinite amount of time - a time that could stretch into months or even years if that family is seeking asylum.

President Donald Trump's fellow Republicans in Congress have been scrambling to craft legislation as videos of youngsters in cages and an audiotape of wailing children have sparked anger at home from groups ranging from clergy to influential business leaders, as well as condemnation overseas.

"No one wants to separate families and the president's action will ensure that those who are crossing our border illegally are detained and our laws are enforced", he said.

Trump has said he's "1,000 percent" behind both GOP bills, but restive House Republicans have all but begged GOP leaders for more clarity about what the president would actually sign.

French far-right leader Marine Le Pen, who in the past has praised Mr Trump's policy of curbing immigration, told French TV that she disagreed with splitting children from parents. "I think anybody with a heart would feel very strongly about it", Trump said. Instinctively combative and fond of chaos, Trump usually digs in on controversial policies, rather than backing down.

But the volume of condemnation on breaking up families, from inside and outside the White House, finally overwhelmed Trump. First is the civil penalty that was used under the Obama administration, which is a $50 to $250 fine.

"This executive order would replace one crisis for another".

As children can not legally be jailed with their parents, they are kept in separate facilities.

"The administration still plans to criminalize families - including children - by holding them in prison-like detention facilities". We can either release all illegal immigrant families and minors who show up at the border from Central America or we can arrest the adults for the federal crime of illegal entry.

The person said Trump called the Justice Department Wednesday morning asking for the draft order. These bills will probably be voted down by the House, and if not, are dead on arrival in the Senate, where Democratic votes would be necessary.

Trump has made a tough stance on immigration central to his presidency.

"Children should not be separated from their parents who are seeking asylum - but neither can the answer be the indefinite jailing of these children with their parents", said Todd Schulte, president of FWD.us, a pro-business group created by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to work on immigration issues.

The president has also dispatched Attorney General Jeff Sessions to the Capitol to urge Republicans to support the immigration proposals, and DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is scheduled to huddle with Republicans to answer questions and rally support for the bills.

Republicans are scrambling to draft a bill to address the growing outcry over the policy of separating migrant families at the US-Mexico border.

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

He reminded Americans that almost everyone in this country comes from somewhere else, and that those who were born into citizenship here should recognize how fortunate they are.
