President Trump Reverses Separation Policy

President Trump on Wednesday reversed his debunked argument that he had no authority to stop separations of undocumented immigrant families at the border, signing an executive order to keep parents and kids together. Mr. Trump’s about face came after he faced intense pressure from across the political spectrum and from religious, political and world leaders to halt the separations, which produced days of heartrending news coverage of crying children — some of whom were kept in cage-like detention centers. Just the day before, Mr. Trump had claimed his administration’s hands were tied without congressional action.
