Trump Meeting With House GOP 'Didn't Move Needle'

A boy and father from Honduras are taken into custody near the U.S.-Mexico Border

President Trump's backdown comes amid growing fury over the detention of children.

"There's no reason to separate the kids from their mothers and fathers".

As children can not go to federal jail they are sent to other detention centres while their parents await trial.

"We don't want people pouring into our country", he told Tuesday's gathering.

Speaking at a business convention, Trump said children have to be taken away if their parents are jailed for illegally crossing the U.S. border.

Senator Cruz pointed out the policy of child separation existed during the Obama years as well, but the current outrage in the media is aimed at hurting President Trump's immigration agenda.

Earlier Wednesday morning, Trump blamed Democrats, tweeting, "It's the Democrats fault, they won't give us the votes needed to pass good immigration legislation". Republican lawmakers are also working to include language that would keep families together. We have to be able to do this.

Republican leaders in the House are now trying to put together an immigration bill that will keep immigrant children in detention indefinitely, but housed with their parents.

There are questions now about what Homeland Security will do with the families that cross over, and also how the government will reunite children with families. But concurrently, organizers are already planning to take their message of support for separated families to Washington, D.C. on June 30, as well as via coordinated rallies across the country.

He said: 'If you're really pathetically weak the country is going to be overrun by millions of people, and if you're strong then you don't have any heart... perhaps I'd rather be strong'. "You started it, you can stop it".

However, the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy of prosecuting all illegal border crossings has caused an increased number of these separations.

In the six weeks since Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the zero tolerance policy, almost 2,000 minors have been separated from their families.

House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters that one of the bills would increase funding to the Department of Homeland Security to source housing and care for families during criminal proceedings against parents.

And Democrats continued to increase the pressure, with Florida U.S. Sen.

A young girl rests on her mother's shoulder as they wait in line to enter the San Francisco office of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Wednesday in San Francisco.

Theresa May has condemned Trump for his "deeply disturbing" policy but said she would not be withdrawing her invitation for Trump to visit the United Kingdom in July. "This is in my state of Florida".
