Melania Trump makes surprise visit to Texas to tour border facilities

First Lady Pays Surprise Visit to Migrant Children at Texas Detention Shelter After Trump Signs Executive Order, Protesters Say More Needs To Be Done To Help Immigrant Families

Protesters packed Pittsburgh's Sixth Presbyterian Church Wednesday night to denounce the Trump administration's family separation policy, which has resulted in thousands of migrant children being separated from their families after their parents were detained for attempting to illegally enter the U.S.

"The executive order that the president signed doesn't end the "zero tolerance" policy of prosecuting anyone and everyone who crosses the border, it reaffirms it", he said.

Pelosi also slammed President Trump's immigration policies after he tweeted that open borders were her "dream". But for now they will no longer have their children taken away from them - families will instead be held together in custody. "The executive order certainly is helping pave the way a little bit, but there's still a lot to be done", Grisham acknowledged.

The president has said previously that he wants to change the Senate's rules to eliminate the filibuster, and allow passage of all bills on a simple-majority vote.

White House officials said they are working to reunite almost 2,300 children already separated from their parents.

The Trump administration's policy that effectively separated families crossing the United States border has held up a big, glaring mirror to America's moral character.

The order aims to keep families together while they are in custody, expedite their cases, and ask the Department of Defence to help house families.

"As specified in the order, families will not be detained together when doing so would pose a risk to the child's welfare".

However, she went on in the press briefing to call building a wall on the border "ineffective, inexpensive, immoral", saying "what's better to do is to build a bridge". The Republicans want security and insist on security for our country and we will have that.

Donald Trump has said the first lady and his eldest daughter and advisor, Ivanka, influenced his decision to sign the executive order.
