By Kenrya Rankin Jun 20, 2018

BBC reports that President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House today (June 20) that he is going to reverse his own policy of forcibly separating immigrant children from their parents at the United States-Mexico border. Trump reportedly said, “I’ll be signing something in a little while that’s going to do that.”

Per Chicago Tribune, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen—who has consistently defended the practice—has drafted an executive action for Trump that would direct her agency to keep families together. Details of the order have not yet been released.
