President Donald Trump gives in to pressure, orders end to family separation policy

Washington, June 21 (UITV/IANS) - US President Donald Trump has bowed to public pressure and signed an executive order promising to "keep families together" in migrant detentions.

Trump reversed his own policy amid international fury over the separation of undocumented parents and children.

He said he had been swayed by images of children who have been taken from parents while they are jailed and prosecuted for illegal border-crossing.

It was not immediately clear when Trump's order would be implemented.

"It's about keeping families together," Trump said at the signing ceremony on Wednesday, reports BBC.
