President Donald Trump has signed off on a plan presented by Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen that would stop Trump’s own policy of separating migrant parents from their children at the U.S.-Mexico border. “We all very much have the same views, we want to keep families together,” Trump said later Wednesday during a meeting with Republican lawmakers. For her part, Nielsen’s sudden about-face ― related by two people familiar with Nielsen’s thinking who spoke to the AP ― comes just days after she defended the practice and said it was the law to separate the children.

In the unlikely event that the House approves the legislation, it seemed certain to go nowhere in the GOP-run Senate, where Democrats have enough votes to use a filibuster — procedural delays — to kill it. On Wednesday, Trump reversed himself and took executive action aimed at curbing the separation of families. Passage of the bill was always a long shot, but failure may now come at a steeper price as Republicans — and Trump — have raised expectations that, as the party in control of Congress and the White House, they can fix the nation’s long-standing immigration problems.

In the midst of her program on Tuesday, the AP reported that Trump administration officials have been sending young children to at least three age-specific shelters as part of the Justice Department’s new “zero tolerance” immigration policy that’s resulted in thousands of kids being separated from their parents.
