President signs order stopping separation of families at border

It was what president said he could not do, change the law the Democrats that separated parents from their children. But after intense public pressure and outcry, with a stroke of a pen by way of an executive order, President Trump changed his administration's policy on separating parents from their children.

The four-page document doesn't stop the criminal prosecutions when individuals cross the border illegally. It will keep parents with their children, if they're arrested in facilities built for families.

In the meantime, the immigrant rights group F.I.E.L. is denouncing President Trump's executive order. The organization says it's not enough, saying that the detention of immigrant children has got to stop.

On the Factor to talk about this is Dr. David Branham with the University of Houston Downtown and St. Rep. Briscoe Cain.
