Supporters of Trump Steadfast Despite Immigration Uproar

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order to end the policy of separating children of irregular migrants on the US border amid domestic and global outrage.

"So Im going to be signing an executive order in a little while before I go to Minnesota but, at the same time, I think you have to understand, were keeping families together but we have to keep our borders strong.

We don't like to see families separated".

A new report by BuzzFeed News revealed how foreign nationals are now having second thoughts before traveling to the U.S. -Mexico border and crossing illegally with their children thanks to Trump's immigration crackdown.

"What we have done today is we are keeping families together", Trump said as he signed the executive order.

Though the Flores settlement requires the government to release children from detention without delay, generally within 20 days, the process can get held up.

So the Fox News host, Bret Baier , comes out and outright says, " Kim Jong Un is a killer". Meanwhile, South Korea's presidential office expressed optimism on Saturday about U.S.

He said he was looking into whether the court could block deportations of parents until they have been reunited with their children, and whether it could force the Trump administration to reunite those separated. "But Congress still needs to act because what they're doing, while very humane, violates something called the "Flores Settlement", which means someone's going to take this to court and they're going to get it thrown out", he said. The Democratic leader in the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, believes Trump's order does nothing but "replace one form of child abuse with another ..."

The Trump administration still faces legal challenges because of a court order that put a 20-day cap on how long immigration authorities may detain minors, and trigger fresh criticism of Trump's hardline immigration policies, which were central to his 2016 election campaign and now his presidency.

In past administrations, most immigrant families were released while their immigration cases proceeded, and were not charged criminally for illegal entry if they didn't have prior criminal records. "The only solution is for Congress to authorize detention and prompt removal for illegal families and minors", DHS Press Secretary Tyler Q. Houlton told Fox News.

As children can not go to federal jail they are sent to other detention centres while their parents await trial.

The president faced mounting pressure from advocacy groups, lawmakers, foreign governments and even family members to end the policy separating families at the border.

Approximately 2,000 children were separated from their parents over a six-week period as a result of the "zero tolerance" approach to immigration, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

US, Mexico and Canada to host 2026 World Cup
The 2026 World Cup will have 48 teams playing a total of 80 games - 60 are planned in the U.S. and 10 each in Canada and Mexico. Ghana will not be participating in the voting process to elect the 2026 World Cup host which takes off anytime soon.

On Wednesday, he claimed the Democrats "won't give us the votes to pass good immigration legislation".

The action came after a firestorm of protest from administration opponents and allies, reacting to pictures and sounds of young children traumatized by their separation from their parents at the hands of US authorities. "It was barbaric to separate children from their parents".

Trump said his immigration policy "continues to be zero tolerance".

"The president watches more cable news than most Americans", a "person who knows Trump's mind" told Axios.

Administration officials were unable to clarify whether family separations would end immediately or when and how families now separated would be reunited.

Sixty-five-year-old Richard Klabechek of Oak Grove, Minnesota, who attended the president's rally Wednesday evening in Duluth, Minnesota, said he was unmoved by the audio of crying children, saying it was "the media playing the heartstrings of the public".
