Indefinitely jailing children is inhumane, immigration advocates say, and there are better ways than detention to ensure migrant families properly navigate their asylum proceedings.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order he said will end the separation of migrant families at the US-Mexico border.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order to end the separation of migrant families along the US-Mexico border amid fierce backlash both at home and abroad.
In signing the order, Trump essentially admitted he had control of the policy all along despite repeatedly dodging responsibility and attempting to punt the issue to Congress.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order to end the separation of migrant families along the US-Mexico border.
"It's about keeping families together," Trump said from the White House as he signed the order, adding, "while ensuring we have a powerful, very strong border."
