Trump signs Executive Order stopping his policy of separating families

On Wednesday, June 20, 2018, President Trump reversed his policy of separating families at the U.S./Mexican border! The President signed Executive Order, “Affording Congress an Opportunity to Address Family Separation” ceasing the separation of families. The children being separated ranged in age from babies to 17 years old. Families will now be allowed to stay together in immigration detention centers. Nothing has been said about the children already separated and how they will be reunited with their parents or guardians.
