US President Donald Trump has promised action to keep families together amid fury over separations of undocumented child migrants from adults.

Trump yesterday told White House correspondents that he will be signing something in a little while that’s going to prevent separation of families.

The Department of Homeland Security has reportedly drafted an executive order to stop the policy, though its wording and scope is unclear.

Trump earlier urged lawmakers to pass a bill ending family separations.

The Republican president also wants immigration laws to be toughened under any such legislation.

The president also said he was postponing a bipartisan congressional picnic scheduled for Thursday “because it didn’t feel right to me”.
