Trump Reportedly Considering Executive Action to Stop Separating Children With Border Policy


According to Fox News’ John Roberts, President Donald Trump is now thinking about taking executive action to reverse his administration’s policy of separating immigrant children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border.

For the last few days, Trump has been slamming Democrats while saying its all up to Congress to come up with a fix for the country’s current immigration system. The president rejected the notion that his administration could stop the separation of children by altering his own policy, but now it sounds like that might be about to change.

Roberts’ report was partially corroborated by Associated Press, though they noted that it’s still unknown if Trump will sign an executive order like this.

UPDATE – 11:55 a.m. EST: Trump has cancelled the congressional picnic at the White House, and multiple reporters say he’s calling the media together and appears ready to sign some sort of executive decree.
