What caused Trump to reverse course on family separation?

A group of immigrants from Honduras and Guatemala seeking asylum arrive at the bus station after they were processed and released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection Thursday

The shift in Trump's thinking came an hour after Speaker Paul Ryan said the House would vote Thursday on a compromise between conservative and moderate Republican lawmakers that would address the issue of family separations.

US President Donald Trump said Wednesday he would sign an executive order to keep migrant families together at the border with Mexico, amid an escalating uproar over the separation of children from their parents. The new Trump policy, unveiled Wednesday, involves keeping families detained together for an indefinite amount of time - a time that could stretch into months or even years if that family is seeking asylum.

The separations began after Attorney-General Jeff Sessions announced in April that all immigrants apprehended while crossing the US-Mexico border illegally should be criminally prosecuted.

"Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform", Grisham said. "Because right now we should act - Democrats and Republicans - to change the law and he should act to change the policy".

Melania was joined by all four of her living predecessors - Michelle Obama, Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton, and Rosalyn Carter - in condemning the policy.

An administration official with knowledge of the plan indicated that the Trump administration was anticipating lawsuits and preparing to litigate Flores in court, particularly if lawmakers fail to approve a legislative fix.

"The Fake News is not mentioning the safety and security of our Country when talking about illegal immigration", he wrote.

The president however made clear he was not easing up on his determination to shut down the border to illegal immigration, calling it a source of rampant crime and drugs. Republicans want security. But I am working on something - it never ends!'

Democrats welcomed Trump's apparent change of course but said he had only himself to blame.

Without Democratic support, Republicans can not muster the 60 votes needed to move forward on legislation. And members on the fence over pending immigration legislation headed to the White House to meet with Trump.

"The Obama administration, the Bush administration all separated families", Nielsen told reporters during the White House press briefing on Monday.

Trump did not say what would happen to the steaks and other meats cooks had been pre-grilling at the White House in preparation for the picnic.

Planning at the Justice Department had been underway over the past several days to provide the president with options on the growing crisis, said the official, who, like others, spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the effort before its official announcement.

The policy had led to a spike in family separations in recent weeks, with more than 2,300 minors were separated from their families at the border from May 5 through June 9, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

Perry was not at the meeting with Trump, but said he doubts the president's words will affect his position.

The House of Representatives planned to vote on Thursday on two bills created to halt the practice of separating families and to address other immigration issues.
