BREAKING: Trump signs executive order to keep immigrant families together (VIDEO)

“We’re going to have a lot of happy people,” Trump said just before placing his John Hancock on the order.

The latest battle in the media vs. Trump war has been underway for a while now, with news outlets and social media presenting wall-to-wall discussions of America’s immigration policies, and the Trump administration’s implementation of those policies.

President Donald Trump made a decisive move today, signing an executive order that puts an end to immigrant family separations, which should be a win for him in the public eye, but it remains to be seen how that will all shake out.

Until now, there’s been a veritable firestorm of emotions and shouting and misinformation, sometimes intentional, sometimes not, with a few random moments of calm explanation of the facts.

Some have been certain, as they have been for a few years now, that Trump is the new Hitler and is locking up children in destitute cages, feeding them gruel, and delighting in their pain of being separated from their parents who have sought entry into the U.S.

Other outlets, such as the Daily Wire, have taken the time to explain that it was a 1997 federal government agreement that stipulated that unaccompanied children of illegal immigrants could not be held in custody for longer than 20 days, and a 9th Circuit Court ruling that later added accompanied children into the mix.

It’s also noted that immigrants who come to official entry ports seeking asylum are not arrested—it’s those who are attempting to enter America illegally and claiming asylum once they are caught who are finding themselves in a bind. Trump is treating them like criminals, according to the law, and if they choose deportation they stay with their children, but if they choose to apply for asylum, their children are separated from them according to the Clinton-era law after 20 days.

Furthermore, many of the pictures of children detainment centers that have shocked so many are actually from the Obama era, when no one had a tear to shed over the issue.

But wherever one stands on the issue, one thing is now beyond debate—while Democrats talk the immigration policy talk, President Trump is now walking the immigration policy walk, and is actually doing something to change the situation brought about by the Clinton-era government and that continued under Bush Jr. and Obama.

He signed an executive order earlier today allowing children to remain with their parents who are caught crossing the border illegally.

Trump also made sure to emphasize that he is remaining tough on illegal immigration, and still has the wall in view, but that he, along with his wife and daughter, feel very strongly about keeping families together.

It’s about keeping families together, while at the same time, being sure that we have a very powerful, very strong border… We’re going to keep the families together. I didn’t like the sight, the feeling of families being separated,

Trump said, just before signing the order. After signing, he added,

I think anybody with a heart would feel very strongly about it. We don’t like to see families separated. At the same time, we don’t want people coming into our country illegally. This takes care of the problem.

Earlier in the day he had stated that the order would be matched by legislation from Congress. For instance, Senator Ted Cruz has proposed legislation that would double the number of federal immigration judges, authorize new temporary housing for immigrant families, and limit the processing of asylum cases to no more than two weeks, Fox News reports.

Democrat Chuck Schumer, however, is adamant that no legislation is needed beyond the president’s executive order. However, as the president’s order goes against the 1997 federal agreement, it is likely to draw a lawsuit.

And those they have already ripped apart? The ones where children are still screaming for ‘Mama, Papa”,; of parents tearing their hair, wondering where their babies are?. Do you Pale Northerners have the slightest idea how deeply children are loved among the people “south of the border”?
What are you going to do to reunite those you have already ripped up???

Look at that signature in the photo, looks like the mentally challenge Trump has been banned from pointy objects like Pens or Biro’s seems he can only be trusted with a “sharpy” as the Americans call it, a permanent marker in my home country.

Where in the Executive Order does it state family’s are to be kept together? It says the DHS will follow the law. The EO does not and can not amend existing law.

FACT IS: the (for profit) ‘kiddie jail’ was set up by the Obama administration and the media at the time said NOTHING about it – then comes along Trump and uses the same facilities built by Obama and all hell lets loose in the media. It was wrong of Obama to set it up in the first place AND wrong of Trump to use it as if on steroids. BOTH presidents are wrong on ‘method’ in this instance and I wish the mainstream ‘weepers’ would give viewers the WHOLE picture instead of their bias ‘selective’ outrage! It belittles the cause… Read more »

Strangely media did not mentioned anything of unlawfulness of illegal immigrants focusing instead of their children and no word was utter to blame illegals for bringing with them children posing a risk for them. Another think how to prove that they are their children. Tests must be in place to do so. Why the national media talking down lawfully elected president?

Not necessarily wise move of Mr Trump in view of the whole picture of illegals. Let me be frank. If you want really to stand up to crime you have to put draconian measures in place otherwise you will be taken very lightly. This is a crime to pass the border illegally so what these people who drag with them children think. They simply think that they will be treated leniently as they have been so far and actually encouraging for this procedure and probably I would go even further they do it being instructed to do so by some… Read more »
