President Trump is contemplating signing an executive order that will end the separation of children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border, a move that will no doubt please many liberals and conservatives alike.
Kirstjen Nielsen, Homeland Security Secretary has drafted the action and has delivered it to the White House and is a directive that would order DHS to keep families together, according to a source who wished to remain anonymous.
In a separate report, Fox News said that Trump was considering signing an executive action that would allow children to stay with their parents. It is not clear if this is the same action that Nielsen drafted.

President Trump also tweeted at 10:41 A.M. ET on Wednesday that the situation was “Democrats[‘] fault,” but that he was “working on something.”
It’s the Democrats fault, they won’t give us the votes needed to pass good immigration legislation. They want open borders, which breeds horrible crime. Republicans want security. But I am working on something – it never ends!

While the media reports about kids in cages and much of the other hoopla surrounding this particular issue is nonsense, the fact remains there are children being separated from their parents, and while we absolutely need to put up the wall, secure the border, and enforce immigration laws, it’s a good move to ensure families stay together somehow.
Now that can look like a whole bunch of different things, but the principle behind the issue is rock solid. Hopefully whatever action is taken will help mend some of the rift that’s split Americans on this issue without compromising liberty and security.
