500 migrant kids have been reunited with their families

Friday afternoon, Trump will meet at the White House with "angel families", or those who have had relatives killed by illegal immigrants - an issue the president has long felt strongly about.

The Departments of Justice, Homeland Security and Health and Human Services are scrambling to devise ways to carry out Trump's order. Is the kid OK?' and she said, 'Yes.

The reversal left a host of unanswered questions, including where the government will house newly detained migrants in an already overcrowded system, and precisely how parents and children will be kept together.

The process of reunifying families who have been separated at the border could take months, federal officials said Friday, as lawyers, advocates and lawmakers said that the path ahead remained murky and chaotic, and the Trump administration failed again to provide clear direction on how to resolve the issue.

Trump and his administration have faced fierce criticism in recent weeks for separating more than 2,300 children from their families in order to prosecute their parents for crossing the border illegally.

Video footage of children sitting in cages and an audiotape of wailing children sparked worldwide anger. You don't know what's going on.

Since the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965, the US immigration system has a large backlog that results in people having to wait years, Gilman said.

Earlier on Friday, Mr Trump tweeted congressional Republicans "should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November".

The House Republican immigration overhaul is dangling precariously. He said it was the first time since May 24 that that happened in McAllen.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Wednesday the Pentagon would not lead such a mission but would help if requested.

"We have housed refugees".

There were also signs that the administration is dialing back, for now at least, its "zero tolerance" policy of prosecuting all adults caught crossing into the US illegally.

It was only his latest attack on Democrats over what critics call a humanitarian crisis caused by his decision to separate more than 2,300 migrant children from their parents. The policy drew widespread, bipartisan condemnation for resulting in the separation of thousands of migrant children from their parents. At one point she sent a note to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The bill was defeated in a 231-193 vote, with 41 Republicans joining the opposition.

Thursday, Republican leaders in the House rescheduled a vote on the more moderate version of two immigration bills after they rejected the more conservative variant.

Instead, Trump has blamed the Democrats for refusing to acquiesce to his demands on immigration. CNN then returned to coverage of illegal immigrant families being separated after crossing the U.S. border.
