The president had not yet signed the order, but said he would before leaving on a trip to Minnesota Wednesday afternoon.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who was verbally attacked by Mr Trump over trade, also said the current United States policy of separating child migrants from their parents and detaining them is "unacceptable".

This is counter to what the Trump administration and the president himself has argued, claiming the president's hands were tied and that Congress only had the power to stop the separation of families. "Go for it! WIN!"

Wolfe said that the decision about the children would be ultimately be handled by the White House, but said "I can tell you definitively that is going to be policy".

"Parents who entered illegally are by definition criminals", Nielsen said on Tuesday.

President Trump appeared to relent under the weight of enormous backlash today, signing an executive order he claims will end the much-criticized practice of separating families at the border.

"We want to solve this immigration problem", Mr. Trump said.

But images of young children housed in metal cages have set off a nationwide outcry that has reached the White House.

"We don't want families to be separated", Pence said.

"So we're going to have strong, very strong borders, but we're going to keep the families together", the president said.

Meanwhile in New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio toured a facility in East Harlem that houses children separated from their parents.

Audio of weeping children and photos of caged kids along the Texas border have sparked the outrage, and pediatricians have called forced separation "catastrophic" for children's long-term health. At the same time, we are keeping a very powerful border and it continues to be a zero tolerance.

Following the meeting he tweeted: "Republicans want security. Clearly the president is hearing the uproar from our communities", said Rep. Pete Aguilar, D-Calif. They don't care about crime and want illegal immigrants, no matter how bad they may be, to pour into and infest our Country, like MS-13.

Trump has been under steadily mounting bipartisan pressure to reverse course on his policy, which has resulted in more than 2,000 children being taken from their parents and housed in makeshift cages in an empty big-box store in Texas and other shelters, including a number in NY.

In May, the Department of Justice adopted the zero-tolerance policy in which anyone caught entering the US illegally is criminally prosecuted.

Other changes would give Homeland Security the authority to use $7 billion in border technology funding to pay for family detention centers.
