President Donald Trump signed an executive order Wednesday that he says will keep migrant families together during detention on the U.S.-Mexico border.
The president will not abandon his "zero tolerance" policy of criminally prosecuting all adults who cross U.S. borders illegally.
Earlier, he signaled he would sign a measure to stop his administration's splitting of migrant families.
"I'll be signing something in a little while that's going to do that," he told reporters during a White House event after saying he wanted families to be kept together. "I'll be doing something that's somewhat pre-emptive and ultimately will be matched by legislation I'm sure."
Trump added: "We're keeping families together, but we have to keep our borders strong. We will be overrun with crime and with people that should not be in our country."
The order is expected to allow families to be housed together even while adults in the family are being detained or prosecuted for crossing the U.S. border illegally or for seeking asylum at the border outside of a designated border entry point.

Great end-around on the loons. I’m sure they’re going to look for the next BS issue to dump on the POTUS.
This will be challenged and thrown out soon. But he can say he tried.
Not good enough for the left. They’ll soon prove that their feigned “concern” for children was just a despicable con job.
Trump is a damn genius.
BTTT for what this EO says...
That's what it looks like.
So after all the teeth gnashing here, all the President did was change the sleeping arrangements.
He just yanked the issue out from under the democrats. Good move.
EO has been signed. Families stay together; zero tolerance stays.
Trump expects litigation and legislation.
This has all been a tempest in a teapot.
this is absolutely drop-dead hilarious... hats off to a master of the game
Families to be held indefinitely outside borders of US - thats what they are saying on radio - LOVE YOU TRUMP !!!
Now I suppose the media will finally move on to the coup plots being investigated by congress now. Right?
> Theyll soon prove that their feigned concern for children was just a despicable con job.
A hundred million Americans with broken families already know that.
Wait till we see all the kids that don’t know their parents in lock up.
It will never be “Enough” for the left..they want Trump dead, his family dead..his Administration, dead..and open borders period end of story..one party system forever and ever and ever
Dont know what it says yet but the headlines are now:
Trump signs EO to keep families together
Ball in Congress court now
“This will be challenged and thrown out soon. But he can say he tried.”
I really hope that’s the plan. This needs to be settled with legislation. I’m so sick and f—ing tired of the frigging uniparty playing with people’s lives. The fake crocodile tears are disgusting.
If the uniparty had any genuine concern for these people, they’d be explaining exactly why they are fleeing their homes. They avoid that topic though. They just want the bodies to keep their dreams of international socialism alive. Moreover, I suspect they get a LOT of money to not discuss that topic since drug cartels probably have a lot of these scumbags paid off.
