Well, here it is.

Doesn’t say much about what it says, just that he’s “stopping” the seperation of families. But still hard lining the zero tolerance thing.

If anything, it seems like a nice thing to do.

“President Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order to allow children to stay with parents caught crossing the border illegally -- moving to stop the family separations that have triggered a national outcry and political crisis for Republicans. “

“The measure would allow children to stay in detention with parents for an extended period of time. This comes as congressional Republicans scramble to draft legislation to address the same issue, but face challenges mustering the votes.

In signing the measure, Trump said he wants to keep families together while also enforcing border security. He vowed his administration's "zero tolerance" policy for illegal immigration would continue.

Trump, previewing the measure earlier in the day during a meeting with lawmakers, said the move would "be matched by legislation." He also said he's canceling the upcoming congressional picnic, adding: "It didn't feel exactly right to me."”


I’m awful at making threads, especially on mobile.
But it’s been such a heated debate around here, figured I’d put it out there.

White House Home Page: EO on this



By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq., it is hereby ordered as follows:
Section 1. Policy. It is the policy of this Administration to rigorously enforce our immigration laws. Under our laws, the only legal way for an alien to enter this country is at a designated port of entry at an appropriate time. When an alien enters or attempts to enter the country anywhere else, that alien has committed at least the crime of improper entry and is subject to a fine or imprisonment under section 1325(a) of title 8, United States Code. This Administration will initiate proceedings to enforce this and other criminal provisions of the INA until and unless Congress directs otherwise. It is also the policy of this Administration to maintain family unity, including by detaining alien families together where appropriate and consistent with law and available resources. It is unfortunate that Congress’s failure to act and court orders have put the Administration in the position of separating alien families to effectively enforce the law.
Sec. 2. Definitions. For purposes of this order, the following definitions apply:
(a) “Alien family” means
(i) any person not a citizen or national of the United States who has not been admitted into, or is not authorized to enter or remain in, the United States, who entered this country with an alien child or alien children at or between designated ports of entry and who was detained; and
(ii) that person’s alien child or alien children.
(b) “Alien child” means any person not a citizen or national of the United States who
(i) has not been admitted into, or is not authorized to enter or remain in, the United States;
(ii) is under the age of 18; and
(iii) has a legal parent-child relationship to an alien who entered the United States with the alien child at or between designated ports of entry and who was detained.
Sec. 3. Temporary Detention Policy for Families Entering this Country Illegally. (a) The Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary), shall, to the extent permitted by law and subject to the availability of appropriations, maintain custody of alien families during the pendency of any criminal improper entry or immigration proceedings involving their members.
(b) The Secretary shall not, however, detain an alien family together when there is a concern that detention of an alien child with the child’s alien parent would pose a risk to the child’s welfare.
(c) The Secretary of Defense shall take all legally available measures to provide to the Secretary, upon request, any existing facilities available for the housing and care of alien families, and shall construct such facilities if necessary and consistent with law. The Secretary, to the extent permitted by law, shall be responsible for reimbursement for the use of these facilities.
(d) Heads of executive departments and agencies shall, to the extent consistent with law, make available to the Secretary, for the housing and care of alien families pending court proceedings for improper entry, any facilities that are appropriate for such purposes. The Secretary, to the extent permitted by law, shall be responsible for reimbursement for the use of these facilities.
(e) The Attorney General shall promptly file a request with the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California to modify the Settlement Agreement in Flores v. Sessions, CV 85-4544 (“Flores settlement”), in a manner that would permit the Secretary, under present resource constraints, to detain alien families together throughout the pendency of criminal proceedings for improper entry or any removal or other immigration proceedings.
Sec. 4. Prioritization of Immigration Proceedings Involving Alien Families. The Attorney General shall, to the extent practicable, prioritize the adjudication of cases involving detained families.
Sec. 5. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:
(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or
(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.
(b) This order shall be implemented in a manner consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.
(c) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.
DONALD J. TRUMP

Thanks. Now the libs got what they wanted re: illegal immigrant kids staying with illegal immigrant parents. Wonder if Schumer will step up and fix the law?

Glad to here zero tolerance on the illegal border crossings will continue.

If tradition holds, Schumer will step up and cry his crocodile tears and talk about how inhuman Trump is and mean his policies are toward children. He may even produce a scared child to wave in front of the camera for the world to see.

Weird, because when the 9th circuit ruled, they saw putting the kids in prison with the parents as inhumane. Mark my words, Trump will now get $hit for putting the kids in prison with the parents. The next outrage will call for them to just allow the families in to the country.

So now, instead of separating kids from their parents, their just gonna detain women and children in (essentially) minimum security prisons, alongside potentially very dangerous and violent men.

Let the sourhern border floodgates open now. Families will come by the busload knowing they won’t be seperated. Oh yeah, now the libs will find something else to bitch about.

Yup. Which is how we got to the separation in the first place.

The Mayor of Seattle Wa is down on the boarder today, because the Homeless crisis at home isn't big enough for her to solve. So I bet Governor Inslee and his stooge of a States Attorney General will be on that lawsuit.

What will it be, oh what will it be? We've done drugs, homelessness, immigration, war on terror, unemployment, hum, what haven't we've gotten to? Oh I know, we can talk about video game addictions (since that's a thing now)

Hey!

The kids aren't separated now! You should be happy.

Of course it was always about open borders and not the kids anyway, but hey!

Get what you can get!

I think they should rent hotels so that each family can have their own room. And then charge the costs to California. That should work!


This country has seriously gone insane. No one has common sense. MSM must be broadcasting some kind of signal to control people's reasoning skills.


Thank you Mr. Trump. You put up with so much and try so hard.

My sources heard that someone ate meat at a restaurant then asked for a plastic straw.



Holy crappo's DB, how'd I miss that one. Heck they even have that little girl that was sad because the whale died after eating all those plastic straws.
