"Legislation is not the way to go here when it's so easy for the president to sign it".

The administration has faced backlash this week for its zero-tolerance policy of separating migrant families illegally crossing the border.

UPDATE 12:18 p.m. EST: Per Bloomberg, the president will be signing an Executive Order today, and Congress will vote on a bill tomorrow.

Women from various faith organizations protested in front of Immigration and Customs Enforcement headquarters Tuesday morning to stop the separation of children from their parents after crossing the border illegally.

Addressing Mr. Trump, Vice President Mike Pence spoke publicly on the issue for the first time at the meeting, ultimately echoing Mr. Trump's call for Congress to address family separation by a more permanent means.

"All of us are horrified at the images we're seeing", Cruz told reporters yesterday, adding he's spoken with the White House about stopping the separations.

Trump said he wanted to "end the border crisis" by giving border officials the resources to "detain and remove illegal immigrant families altogether".

They also have talented young players such as Terry Rozier to use in an attempt to move up. If the team can trade up, it will be the fifth year in a row it will have a top-five pick.

In recent weeks, stories of weeping children torn from the arms of their parents have flooded the media along with video footage showing migrant children held in wire cages, sitting on concrete floors.

Sessions was asked on Fox News about a tweet by former CIA Director Michael Hayden likening what happened at Auschwitz concentration camp, where millions of Jews and other minorities were killed, to the separation of undocumented immigrant families at the United States border.

"We're going to have strong, very strong borders, but we're going to keep the families together", Trump said.

He tweeted: "Republicans want security".

On Monday, the ProPublica website published an audio clip of children many of crying so hard that it sounded as if they could "barely breathe". "Clearly the president is hearing the uproar from our communities", said Rep. Pete Aguilar, D-Calif.

Opposition lawmakers rebuked May for not criticizing the Trump administration in stronger terms. "They really would like to have open borders where anybody in the world can just flow in, including from the Middle East, from anybody anywhere they can just flow into our country". One official said it was the Justice Department that generated the legal strategy that is codified in the executive order, and disputed the notion that Homeland Security was involved in drawing up the document.

The president's "zero tolerance" immigration policy announced in May mandated universal prosecution of adults who enter the country illegally.
