Under growing pressure to act unilaterally to address the immigration crisis, on Wednesday President Donald Trump signed an executive order that he said would keep immigrant families at the border together. Trump said he didn’t like the sight of families being separated, but said the “zero tolerance” policy of prosecuting everyone who tries to cross the border illegally would continue. “It’s about keeping families together,” Trump said, “while ensuring we have a powerful, very strong border.” I think the word ‘compassion’ comes into it,” he said. “My wife feels strongly about it. I feel strongly about it. Anybody with a heart would feel this way,” he added. Vice President Mike Pence added that they are calling upon Congress to change the laws. Trump adds that the word “compassion” comes into it. Trump has been trying to win over congressional support on immigration amid a crisis along the border involving the separation of immigrant children from their families.
