Trump Plans Executive Order to Allow Detaining Families Together Indefinitely

Proving he could have not started this in the first place, Trump is now planning to take action against his own policy.

‘President Trump is preparing to issue an executive order as soon as Wednesday that ends the separation of families at the border by indefinitely detaining parents and children together, according to a person familiar with the White House plans.

Mr. Trump’s executive order would seek to get around an existing 1997 consent decree, known as the Flores settlement, that prohibits the federal government from keeping children in immigration detention — even if they are with their parents — for more than 20 days.’
