President Donald Trump, under mounting political pressure from angry members of his own party, signed an executive order Wednesday reversing his administration’s policy of separating children from their parents at the border and allowing families to instead be detained together…
…The order marks an abrupt about-face for the president, who said as recently as Friday that when it came to keeping migrant families together, “you can’t do it through executive order.” He had faced extraordinary pressure from Capitol Hill, even from some of his closest GOP allies, as well as from members of his own family, to end his administration’s policy of separating children from parents who cross the U.S.-Mexico border illegally.
Looks like Comrade Trump licked the spoon. But wait! There’s more!
It also remains unclear how the administration will reunite the families that have already been separated at the border.
Until 100% of those kids are back in the arms of their parents, our work is not done here. Keep up the pressure.
