"Children separated from parents at US border held in cages in Texas warehouse".

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights urges Trump to end policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the border, describing it as "unconscionable” that any country would seek to control immigration by “inflicting such abuse on children".

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights: People do not lose their human rights by virtue of crossing a border without a visa. I deplore adoption by many countries of policies intended to make themselves as inhospitable as possible by increasing the suffering of vulnerable people.
"Donald Trump has said he will sign an executive order to end family separations at the border. Trump said in the cabinet room: “We’re going to be signing an executive order in a little while. We’ve got to be keeping families together".

Great news, of course. Even if the children traumatised by it may well never completely recover from it. I hope they sue Trump and win.

But how is Trump ending separations, when his administration has been saying that there are no separations?

Trump’s plan to stop separating immigrant children from their families is simple: lock up immigrant parents and their children together, indefinitely. But this probably breaches a 2015 court ruling that limits immigration detention of a child to 20 days.
