Trump tells federal agencies to reunite families at border; Melania visits region

Trump's order to end his family separation policy was purely political — not a change of heart

Mrs. Trump wore a different pale yellow jacket when the plane landed in McAllen, Texas, for a visit to the Upbring New Hope Children's Center, which houses 55 migrant children.

Melania Trump touched down in McAllen, Texas, on Thursday, June 21, in an unannounced trip to the border area to meet with immigrant children who have been separated from their families.

The compromise bill, in addition to ending family separations, addresses Trump's goals of boosting border security including funding for his wall, limiting so-called "chain migration", ending the visa lottery program and providing legal protections for young immigrants in the Obama-era DACA program who were brought to the country illegally as children.

The first lady said earlier through her spokeswoman that she "hates" to see families separated at the border.

The group was denied immediate access to a holding facility by the Department of Health and Human Services, said Steve Benjamin, mayor of Columbia, South Carolina.

Updated: The Washington Post has corrected its story after sending out a news alert Thursday reporting that President Donald Trump's administration will suspend prosecution of immigrants who illegally enter the United States with their children.

"It's about keeping families together while at the same time making sure that we have a very powerful, very strong border", Mr. Trump said as he signed the order in a hastily arranged Oval Office gathering.

California to vote on splitting into 3 states
The ballot initiative describes the state of California as so enormous and diverse as to be "nearly ungovernable". Californians have long debated whether they were better as a whole or in parts.

Sitting with officials at a center in McAllen, Texas, she said: 'How can I help these families reunite with their children as quickly as possible?' The words, "Welcome! First Lady" were written in black marker across the red and white bars. "She wanted to see everything for herself".

The Trump Administration had been encountering a deluge of outrage all week after government officials confirmed that more than 2,000 children had been separated from their parents in the past five weeks, a direct result of the "zero-tolerance" policy Attorney General Jeff Sessions implemented in May.

"We're essentially hiding behind the system and gridlock and using it as an excuse to dehumanize people and literally tear apart parents and children", he said. "We see them as our own".

"It's extremely troubling that the president's executive order would require immigrant families with children to be detained indefinitely".

"This was 100 percent her idea".

When asked if the first lady supported the executive order, Grisham said Trump supports family reunification and will continue to "give her husband opinions on what she's thinking should happen".

The policy shift faces legal challenges because of a court order that put a 20-day cap on how long minors can be detained, and the Trump administration has called for legislation to find a permanent fix.
