Uncertain Immigration Votes Set in House

Media playback is unsupported on your device                  Trump to'keep families together

First lady Melania Trump touched down in McAllen, Texas, Thursday making a publicly unannounced and hastily planned trip to get a first-hand look at the crisis affecting immigrant families at the US border.

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. Trump was not wearing the jacket when she landed in McAllen, Texas.

Later, she toured a section of the facility where the children have bedrooms and was told they maintain their own rooms.

The first lady took a tour of Upbring New Hope Children's shelter, which cares for 58 children ages 5 to 17.

Updated: The Washington Post has corrected its story after sending out a news alert Thursday reporting that President Donald Trump's administration will suspend prosecution of immigrants who illegally enter the United States with their children.

Top CBP officials did not know what the executive order would ask them to do until its release Wednesday, the official said.

There is only the USB Type-C Port, and that's present on the bottom, along with the SIM card tray and the speaker grill. Since the pop up camera has several motorised moving parts, the practicality of such a mechanism is questionable.

President Trump repeatedly, and falsely, blamed Democrats for the practice and said there was nothing he could do to end it. But King believes President Trump's executive order on Wednesday took much of the heat off of Republicans, even though the order allows the administration to continue separating families and does nothing to reunite the thousands already separated.

"As a mother, a grandmother, and as a psychiatric social worker, I am most concerned for the physical and mental well-being of children separated from their parents at their most vulnerable time", Lee continued. The Republicans want security and insist on security for our country and we will have that.

"She wanted to see everything for herself", Grisham said.

King, who supports Speaker Paul Ryan's immigration bill that is now bleeding support from both the hardline and moderate wings of the GOP caucus, added that he does believe Congress should eventually act on the issue of child separations. "It's nothing we could call a trend", the official said.

Republicans in both the House and Senate have also introduced standalone legislation that would keep detained families together while they await legal proceedings.

Donald Trump has said the first lady and his eldest daughter and advisor, Ivanka, influenced his decision to sign the executive order.
