"I'd be a fool to say there's not".

In comments reported by the New York Times, Kevin K McAleenan, the commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, said the decision would be implemented until a policy could be agreed with the Justice Department that would allow parents to be prosecuted without separating them from their children.

Several immigration experts say the government could speed up the process by adding more judges to the immigration system.

Parents are being offered the option to sign voluntary departure orders to speed up their cases and are told they'll be reunited with their kids before they are deported if they do - a move that has been raised questions from lawyers who represent undocumented immigrants.

Ryan said he would not rule out the possibility of bringing to a vote a narrower bill addressing only the detention of immigrant families, if the broader bill did not pass.

"People must simply be stopped at the Border and told they can not come into the US illegally", he wrote in a June 25 tweet. More specifically, immigrant family separation, the policy that has dominated the news cycle over much of the past week, was viscerally unpopular, even if the GOP hasn't shouldered all the blame.

The Justice Department on Thursday asked a California court to modify a federal order limiting the ability of U.S. officials to detain immigrant children for more than 20 days - a central thrust of the executive order signed by President Donald Trump last week that was widely seen as a reversal of the hardline tactic.

Trump attempted to end the practice with an executive order on June 20 that prioritizes keeping the families together while detained. Barack Obama was president and the quote was uttered by Hillary Clinton, Obama's secretary of state from 2009 to 2013, who also plainly stated that thousands of children "should be sent back" to their families.

If they are from Mexico, they can be sent back over the border. Some sat in a busy roadway for while police diverted traffic around them. Federal law prevents children from being held in the same detention facility as those charged with unlawful entry, causing border patrol agents to separate children from their families. Continued support for Trump, and for restrictive immigration policies writ large among the GOP base, are tempering GOP elites' apparent fears: First, of further backlash should the policy remain in effect; and second, as is becoming increasingly apparent, should unwinding the politically damaging internment of separated children prove nearly as disastrous as the original approach.

A large part of the poll probed respondents' views on the issue of some illegal immigrants getting separated from their children in detention facilities, a situation that has recently affected more people because of President Donald Trump's more stringent enforcement of existing immigration laws.

"I think there is very, very powerful consensus on both sides of the aisle that reunification should be done immediately", Blumenthal said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record about a pending announcement.

Ruben Garcia, the director of the organization, said most parents have been detained for an average of 25 days and about 90 percent have not spoken to their children since they were separated.

The temporary shelter at Tornillo was close to its 360-person capacity. The parents were mainly from Central America.

They came from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, with children in tow. Two girls who stopped briefly in front of reporters said that they were doing well. Then children are transferred to the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services, while adults are detained through Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which is under the Department of Homeland Security.

The Trump administration has instead asked the federal court in Los Angeles to let authorities detain families together for an extended period during immigration proceedings.
