Donald Trump dramatically backs down on family border separations

"No one wants to separate families and the president's action will ensure that those who are crossing our border illegally are detained and our laws are enforced", he said. "I feel strongly about it", Mr. Trump said.

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". "We will have that as the same time we have compassion".

Comedy Giants Putting Some Serious Pressure on FOX News
Over the weekend, " Family Guy " co-creator Seth MacFarlane said Fox News made him "embarrassed to work for this company". Fox News regularly comes under attack for its news coverage, but criticism rarely makes its way back to 21st Century Fox.

Critics argue it is inhumane for the Trump administration to use children as political pawns. The move comes amid outrage over reports of immigrant children being permanently separated from their parents and sent to separate detention facilities.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen reportedly drafted an executive action and took it to the White House, which would instruct the Department of Homeland Security to keep families together.
