The president argued that children held in cages away from their parents was less serious than murders committed by foreign criminals who permanently separate families. These are the families that the media ignores.

In the Texas border city of McAllen, federal prosecutors unexpectedly did not pursue charges against 17 immigrants.

The president did note during the cabinet meeting that both he and his wife, Melania Trump, were "really bothered" by the separations at the border.

Immigrants like Ever Castillo and Diva Funes were among those affected by the mixed signals from the U.S.

"They don't want to discuss, they don't want to hear, they don't want to see", Trump said.

"We are bringing that bill to the floor", House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said, referring to legislation that has been postponed because of a lack of support among warring factions of the Republican Party.

Watch above at 2:30 p.m. EST, via YouTube. The Justice Department agreed to release Mejia-Mejia's son after she sued the US government in order to be reunited following their separation at the USA border.

The mother, Beata Mariana de Jesus Mejia-Mejia, had filed for political asylum after crossing the border with her son, Darwin, following a trek from Guatemala.

It was not immediately clear Friday where the parents of children would go if they will no longer be separated from their families. Permanently. They are not separated for a day or two days. "He cried. He was so sad", the father said.

"We weren't lucky enough to be separated for five days, 10 days", Laura Wilkerson, of Pearland, Texas, told the gathering. Along with that action, the president emphasized his administration would still enforce a "zero-tolerance" policy on illegal immigration and blamed Congress for not changing the law.

President Donald Trump has vowed to secure United States' worldwide borders and prevent people from illegally entering America, and said that he wants only those based on merit to come inside the country, amid a major immigration row.

"What we need from the president is for him to sign a good immigration bill, and he and his team have indicated that he will".

"You hear the other side".

"It's a horrifically chilling signal", said another retiring Republican, Rep. Mark Sanford of SC, who recently lost his primary election after frequently criticizing Trump.

The official says numerous children were reunited within days after being separated from their families.

On Friday, the Department of Homeland Security said it had reunited 500 migrant children with their parents after being separated at the border since May.

Trump's new order calls for families to be housed together at facilities provided by USA government agencies.

By Friday, frustrated with Republicans in the House of Representatives for failing to pass a conservative immigration bill on Thursday and delaying a planned vote on a GOP compromise measure until next week, Trump launched a rallying cry for his base, calling on voters to "elect more Republicans" to pass the "pass the finest, fairest and most comprehensive Immigration Bills anywhere in the world".

In abandoning the compromise bill and delaying a vote until after the November elections, Trump risks losing $23 billion in funding for border security included in the proposal, some of which would go toward building the wall along the USA border with Mexico. It's unclear what will happen to the 2,300 children that have already been removed from their parents by authorities and placed in juvenile detention centers. "And it's like, I think he's with us, but he's got to really come out for us".
