"We're signing an executive order". I consider it to be a very important executive order.

Trump was a meeting with members of Congress Wednesday when he addressed the increase in the number of migrant children being separated from their families at the border. The language also leaves room to separate children from parents if it's best for the child's welfare.

The President claimed, though, that he isn't backing down.

The speaker stressed Republicans "do not want children taken away from their parents" but he did not commit to holding a vote on stand-alone legislation to end family separation.

Trump signing an executive order to stop the practice of separating families would cap off a week of chaotic messaging from the White House. Trump previously had insisted his hands were tied on the separation policy.

Under previous USA administrations, immigrants caught crossing the border for the first time tended to be issued with court summonses and released.

Trump's wife was among those urging him to reverse course.

Two people close to Nielsen said she was the driving force behind the turnabout that led to the new order keeping families together. In order to hold families together indefinitely, it directs Attorney General Jeff Sessions to try to modify a 1997 court agreement, known as the Flores settlement, that prohibits the federal government from keeping children, even with their parent, in immigration detention for more than 20 days. Children are separated from their parents, held in separate facilities and then sent to a shelter and eventually to stay with sponsors.

"The dilemma is: If you're weak, which some people would like you to be, if you're really, really pathetically weak, the country's going to be overrun with millions of people". The administration says it wants Congress to act and we are.

But some worry the lack of a clear resolution could exacerbate an already tough situation as his party heads toward the mid-terms.

The President's decision came a day after he met Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill who fear that their own political prospects with the midterm elections are being damaged by the separation policy.
