Trump plans executive action to prevent family separations at border

President Trump is planning to sign an executive order to allow children to stay with parents caught crossing the border illegally — a step that could avoid the family separations that have triggered a national outcry and political crisis for Republicans.
The action under consideration would allow children to stay in detention with parents for an extended period of time, Fox News has learned. This comes as congressional Republicans scramble to draft legislation to address the same issue, but face challenges mustering the votes.
Trump previewed the new measure, while holding out hope for legislation, during remarks to reporters during a meeting Wednesday with lawmakers.
“I’ll be signing something in a little while [to keep families together],” he said, calling the move “somewhat preemptive” and stressing it would “be matched by legislation.” He also said he’s canceling the upcoming congressional picnic, adding: “It didn’t feel exactly right to me.”

Well, Trump lost this one. If ryan is not removed, expect a lot more of this kind of caving. These short timers are going to do as much damage as they can before they go. There is no tomorrow for them if they do not deliver for their future employers. I believe it is going to hurt us come midterms, very badly.

I’ve always wondered what would happen if you waterboarded a four-year-old….
Allowing the democrat media to use this to take control of Congress would mean impeachment and the end of MAGA. So take your weakness and shove it.

The only thing that matters to liberals is getting the future illegal alien voters on their side, permanently.

Yep. Because undocumented children are FAMOUS for showing up at voter registration with the documentation they don’t have.

Fun times when you’re having a good fly.
I demand that he follow up with another EO allowing the kids and spouses of American rapists, murderers, drunk drivers, etc. to accompany the accused to jail if they so desire, to avoid separating families.

That’s a pretty good idea, innit?
I am more disappointed in President Trump than the moment he took office.
He won’t get credit for this, he will just get grief from both sides.
Bad moment for him.

And lastly, in the “hope springs eternal” department :
Rather than cave, the President continued his attack in a different direction
I think someone rather famous called this “advancing to the rear”.

Those that think cave will be surprised when they lose big time

One last piece here – Freeper reaction to the “IDGAF” jacket :
Melania wears jacket with ‘I really don’t care, do u?’ on it to visit border(Melania Trolls) Yahoo ^ | 6/21/2018 | Lauren Tuck Posted on 6/21/2018, 2:45:10 PM by grayboots
Melania Trump wears jacket with ‘I really don’t care, do u?’ on it to visit border facilities On Thursday, Melania Trump made a surprise visit to the Texas border near Mexico. The first lady, whose stylish outfits tend to draw more attention than her actions, seemingly made a conscious decision to wear a subtle outfit for the trip. For a tour of Upbring New Hope, a housing facility for children aged 12 to 17, as well as other meetings throughout McAllen, she wore white jeans, a khaki shirt, and white Stan Smith sneakers. However, her casual look still managed to make a major statement. To exit the car and head to the plane, FLOTUS wore a green hooded jacket. And, according to the Daily Mail, the item features graffiti on the back that reads “I really don’t care, do u?” While the jacket is currently unavailable, the publication reports that the military-style coat originally retailed for $39. Social media is in disbelief.
And sure enough, those Melania trolls are out in force :
There’s the “She pissed herself off some libtards, HAW HAW HAW” brigade :

Not Melania Trump . Wrong hair and I don’t think she would appear in public wearing that kind of sandals.

Now that would be the ultimate fake news wouldn’t it that she really didn’t wear that jacket?

Why would a classy lady like her wear ant tacky clothing?
Makes no sense

“Social media is in disbelief.”
If this is true I share their disbelief. Talk about poor taste and timing. Anyone who thinks this is going to help Trump is delusional.

she may not have meant it. (honestly, I personally, really don’t care) But it was in poor taste and some handler should be fired for it.

Nah – a rogue “handler” would have just slapped a paper “kick me” sign on her back.

The media will keep coming back with stuff like this, and you won’t hear the end of it.
Trump can survive any number of political disputes, but a “let them eat cake” image is hard to shake.

It was an error to wear it and would have been even if she was just taking a stroll in the Rose Garden. “I don’t care” isn’t a sentiment a First Lady should express in big white letters across her back, or in any way. Whatever some parts of the country may think of her, she needs to be First Lady to the whole country.

What you said above…is true.
Melania is a great First Lady, but the jacket was a mistake. Everyone can gloat over how “she’s letting them have it.” No. Just no. It’s a mistake. She is the First Lady—do not wear a jacket that says you don’t care.
