WATCH: Trump Signs Executive Order Ending Family Separations At Border

“We’re keeping families together and this will solve that problem. At the same time we are keeping a very powerful border and there continues to be a zero tolerance.”

US President Donald Trump has signed an executive order to end family separations at the US-Mexico border.

The policy had come under fire from a wide range of critics – including many hypocritical critics like Justin Trudeau who condemned a policy he has imposed in Canada.

At the signing, Trump said “We’re keeping families together and this will solve that problem. At the same time we are keeping a very powerful border and there continues to be a zero tolerance.”

According to a CNBC report, the executive order includes the following things:

  • It orders Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen “to the extent permitted by law and subject to the availability of appropriations” to keep families together during criminal proceedings.
  • The measure says the administration does not have to keep families together “when there is a concern” that detaining a child with a parent “would pose a risk to the child’s welfare.”
  • It directs Attorney General Jeff Sessions to file a request with a federal district court in California to change a legal settlement that curbs the government’s ability to keep children in detention.
  • It orders Sessions to prioritize criminal proceedings for cases involving families.

It is beyond shame that these poor people, left as illegal, trying to find a better place as their own countries are in such disarray and they leave their extended family and friends being told that the USA or England or Germany or Canada etc. will welcome them and supply everything needed to start to build a new life, when they would rather just love to stay home if it was peaceful, and they could afford to live a healthy happy life. No bad governments and foreign rich people that won’t let them live a prosperous comfortable life, and pushes… Read more »
