Confusion and uncertainty at the border after Trump acts

Confusion and uncertainty at the border after Trump acts

Mrs. Trump had changed into a pale yellow jacket before arriving in McAllen and wore that during the more than hour-long visit to the center, but donned the green jacket once again as she returned to the White House.

The US first lady, Melania Trump, went on a damage-control mission for her husband on Thursday with a visit to a border detention facility where children separated from their parents were being held.

Anti-Trump artwork has been popping up around Derry amid outrage at the American President's immigration policy of separating and detaining children in camps away from their parents at the border between Mexico and America.

"She wants to see what's real", said the first lady's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told CNN during a 10-minute press briefing en route to Texas. The visit to the one-story red brick building, which houses 55 children, was meant to lend support to those children who remain separated from their parents, said Stephanie Grisham, the first lady's spokeswoman.

Trump's executive order would keep families together but in custody indefinitely while parents are prosecuted for entering the country illegally - a move that could lead to new legal battles for the administration. The first lady signed it as well.

"I'm glad I'm here and I'm looking forward to seeing and meeting children, but first of all let me begin to recognise each of you and thanking you for all that you do, for your heroic work that you do every day and what you do for those children", Mrs Trump said. Immigrant families will now be detained together when caught for as long as their criminal proceedings take.

"She wants to see what's happening for herself and she wants to lend her support, executive order or not", said Grisham. Children can not follow their family members or guardians into custody, so United States guidelines mandate that those children be separated - often from their parents.

"Doesn't feel great", Rep. Tom Cole, a member of the whip team and an ally of GOP leadership said about the prospects for passage. "On the other hand, we shouldn't be doing it unless we have all the structures in place to accommodate the families right away".

"This was 100 percent her idea".

Trump is defending his Wednesday executive order to end new family separations at the border, but says Congress needs to act to permanently fix the problem.

Trump's solution is to imprison parents and children together.

From March to May this year, more than 50,000 people a month were apprehended for illegally crossing the border from Mexico.

The administration also has called for a permanent legislative fix but congressional Republicans said the House was likely to reject two immigration bills created to halt the practice of splitting up families and address a range of other immigration issues.
