Trump: I Will “Sign Something” On Migrant Families

CNBC reports:

President Donald Trump on Wednesday signaled that he plans to sign an executive action designed to keep families together during detention on the U.S.-Mexico border.

“I’ll be signing something in a little while that’s going to do that,” he told reporters during an event at the White House, after saying he wanted families to be kept together. “I’ll be doing something that’s somewhat preemptive and ultimately will be matched by legislation I’m sure,” he said.

The action is expected to allow families to be housed together even while adults in the family are being detained or prosecuted for crossing the U.S. border illegally, or for seeking asylum at the border outside of a designated border entry point.
