President Trump Wednesday afternoon signed an executive order ending family separation at the U.S. -Mexico border.
Trump reversed his policy after heavy criticism from Republican and Democratic lawmakers, his own wife and daughter, and two-thirds of Americans, who strongly disapproved of the move in recent polling.
He made the comment during a meeting with his Cabinet at the White House.
Despite Trump's executive order, a host of unanswered questions remain, including what will happens to the children who were already separated from their parents and where the government will house all the newly detained migrants, with the system already bursting at the seams.
Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives have not yet rounded up the votes needed to pass immigration legislation they plan to take up later on Thursday, a member of the House Republican leadership said. No legislation was prepared as Trump relented, effectively admitting that his prior claim was false. That's a tough dilemma.

Instead of Trump taking a loss and showing that his influence among House Republicans may not be as strong as perceived, the blame for the immigration bills going down will mostly be placed on the shoulders of Speaker Paul Ryan and other House GOP leaders.
Trump told members of Congress that first lady Melania Trump and his daughter Ivanka Trump urged him to reverse course, faced with the images and sounds of crying children locked behind metal fencing.

The spectacular about-face comes after more than 2,300 children have been stripped from their parents.
The Washington Post reported earlier Thursday that the Trump administration will stop prosecuting migrant parents who cross the border illegally with children until immigration authorities have the resources to allow them to be held in custody.
The president said child smugglers, which he cited as a major reason behind that parent-child separation policy Tuesday, "use these children as passports to get into the country".
More details to come.
He ordered on Wednesday that the children be held with their parents while they are detained on charges of crossing the border illegally. "No aspect of this is easy, but they created this mess and they have to go back and fix it". It provides $25 billion for Trump's wall, restrictions on legal immigration and language requiring the Homeland Security Department to keep migrant families together while they're being processed for illegal entry to the U.S.
