Trump hosts victims of undocumented migrants amid family separations row:
US President Donald Trump has hosted the relatives of victims murdered by illegal immigrants amid outrage over the separation of migrant families.
“Your loved ones haven’t died in vain,” he told the group of so-called Angel Families at the White House.
Mr. Trump has faced global condemnation for the US immigration policy that has seen over 2,000 migrant children stripped from their families.
He bowed to public pressure and reversed the policy earlier this week.
The president signed an executive order on Wednesday to stop undocumented immigrant kids being detained separately from their parents after they have illegally entered the country.
However, the administration’s”zero-tolerance” policy of criminally prosecuting anyone who crosses the border illegally remains in place.
