Immigration lawyers warn Trump's executive order still gives the government plenty of wiggle room to keep separating parents from their children

One lawyer said the executive order "is not a victory" when it comes to protecting the...

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."
