Trump's immigration order sparks confusion, concern over children already separated from families

A court order has put a 20-day cap on how long immigration authorities can detain minors, which has triggered fresh criticisms of President Trump's hardline immigration policy that was central to his 2016 election campaign. The practice, and accompanying images of children crammed into cages, sparked widespread condemnation from activists, Democrats and several Republicans. Hindustan Times delivers the news across all social media platforms, on the web, and at your doorstep.

"She wants to see what's real", the first lady's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told CNN en route to Texas. "I signed a very good executive order yesterday, but that's only limited".

Guatemalan undocumented immigrant Beata Mejia Mejia is suing the USA government for allegedly violating her human rights when they took away her son, Darwin, after she crossed the USA border. He says staff have "a tremendous passion for working with these children" and the center is "their home".

For weeks, Trump had insisted he was bound by law to split children from their parents and that only Congress could resolve the problem - before he radically shifted gears.

Melania Trump visited with migrant children Thursday during a brief stop at a Texas facility housing some of the youth separated from their parents as her husband's administration prosecutes adults who enter the US illegally from Mexico.

Trump a day earlier signed an executive order requiring immigrant families be detained together when they are caught entering the country illegally for as long as their criminal proceedings take.

The more hard-line proposal did not address family separations at the border, nor did it offer a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers. "And we will have that - at the same time, we have compassion, we want to keep families together".

Around 2,300 children were forcibly separated from their parents, who illegally crossed the southern border.

In a day of confusion and conflicting reports, the Trump administration began drawing up plans to house as many as 20,000 migrants on USA military bases.

Melania Trump says her visit with migrant children has "impacted me greatly".

Hundreds of protesters held a vigil at LaGuardia Airport in NY throughout Wednesday night after news spread on social media that children who had been separated from their families at the US-Mexico border were arriving on flights.

"I don't know the answer to that question", the Wisconsin Republican said when asked if there's any legislative solution on immigration that could unify the GOP conference, which is divided on many issues but particularly immigration.

House and Senate Democrats are demanding that President Donald Trump reunify the families that were separated at the US border.

Mrs. Trump was wearing a different jacket when the plane landed.

The US House of Representatives on Thursday defeated a Republican bill created to significantly reduce visas for legal immigration and to temporarily protect illegal "Dreamer" youths from deportation, but not offer them a path to permanent legal residency.

"We had days of the president saying this couldn't be done this way, that he would say, incorrectly, that it couldn't be done by executive order, that it had to by Congress", Lemire said.
