Top Senate Republican Orrin Hatch broke with President Donald Trump on Tuesday over separating families at the southern border, telling reporters he's "not real happy with the way things are going right now". "But given what we know about the policies now in effect at the border, I can't in good conscience send Delawareans to help with that mission".

The Mexican government has joined in the condemnation of the separation of families, with Luis Videgaray saying the nation did not support illegal immigration but "cannot remain indifferent in the face of something that clearly represents a violation of human rights". And you want to be able to do that. "That is what we would like to do but if people won't work together to do it then our hands are really tied". Nielsen has drafted an executive action directing her department to keep families together after they are detained crossing the border illegally. Other Senators, including Sens. The policy was ordered by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

It was not clear how the executive order would affect plans by House Speaker Paul Ryan to hold on to a comprehensive immigration bill Thursday that would also address the emotional issue of family separation.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who was verbally attacked by Mr Trump over trade, also said the current United States policy of separating child migrants from their parents and detaining them is "unacceptable". "They don't need jail".

"President Trump has finally recognized his folly, but this humanitarian crisis should have never happened in the first place", she said.

"It's cruel and inhumane, and I told the National Guard to hold steady and to not go down to the border - period", Baker told The Boston Globe.

Trump said zero tolerance will continue. "At the same time, we don't want people coming into our country illegally". "The administration's current family separation policy is an affront to the decency of the American people, and contrary to principles and values upon which our nation was founded". Administration lawyers will petition a Los Angeles-area federal court to modify that settlement and allow kids to be detained for longer with their parents.

The Osaka prefectural government's disaster management department confirmed the girl's death and the death of an older man. Two men in their 80s also died, news reports said. "I saw the ceiling and the floor undulating, and I could barely stand.

We are also left with question as to whether the "zero tolerance" policy is constitutional as it is being implemented and whether the administration is equipped to care - at huge taxpayer expense - for those who came here desperate to escape from their home countries. "We can not remain silent in the face of these horrifying stories", The letter states. The bill calls for 225 new immigration judges and the prioritization of cases involving children and families.

"The thought that any state would seek to deter parents by inflicting such abuse on children is unconscionable", al-Hussein said on Monday.

Customs and Border Protection officials on Tuesday said they have separated more than 2,000 children from parents or other family members since early May but did not say how many of those children are under the age of five. When a reporter noted that federal agencies have assessed four military bases for potential use as temporary housing for detained migrants, including unaccompanied children, Mattis said the Pentagon will "support whatever" the Department of Homeland Security says it needs. "We are trying to protect the children".

President Donald Trump signs an executive order halting the separation of families after they crossed into the USA illegally.

Under the bill, children under age 18 would be kept with their families in residential centers during legal proceedings. "You can do it. Mr. President you started it, you can stop it". "So as expected, they were traumatized and that was manifested in many behaviors", Davidson said in an interview with ABC News. "Kinda just reacting in the only way they knew how in a situation that they had no idea what was going on", he added. Frontier, in pulling out, said it "prides itself on being a family airline".

Wolfe said that the decision about the children would be ultimately be handled by the White House, but said "I can tell you definitively that is going to be policy". "I can't imagine what the families living through this are enduring".
