in conditions critics have called in to maine and even evil. this is trumps zero tolerance immigration policy in action. illegal immigrants are now being prosecuted as criminals and can be imprisoned for an indefinite amount of time the children that cross the border illegally however can only be detained for a maximum of twenty days under u.s. law the policy to separate children from parents was designed to get around that problem and critics argue to send a stark message to families thinking about making the journey. as the numbers of detained children grew in recent weeks so too did the waves of opposition from dozens of cities across america to congress. let's go back to a time a steady and decency in america when children were respected loved the children mr
president be a dad for once it's been going on for six as the blowback intensified including from members of trump's own republican party trump relented signing an executive order to do what his administration had been saying for weeks it couldn't we're signing an executive order. i consider to be a very important executive order it's about keeping families together while at the same time. making sure that we have a very powerful very strong order and border security will be. equal if not greater than previously so we're going to have strong very strong borders but we're going to keep the families together. although this solves one problem for his administration it creates another children will now be kept with their fam. please in detention but because the children can't be detained for more than twenty days
the trumpet ministration is headed to the courts asking a federal judge to allow children to be detained alongside their parents indefinitely for as long as the prosecution takes. claire richardson is in san diego california near the u.s. by xico border she's been gauging reaction to trump's policy reversal. the majority of americans have never supported the idea of separating children from their parents when they cross the u.s. border so you can imagine that this reversal has been very welcome here indeed now the immigration rights organizations that i've been speaking to here in san diego say that it doesn't go far enough they want to see more comprehensive reform to the immigration system they want to see an end to the war on drugs that they say fuels instability and drives people up to the border and they say that they want to silence seekers it to be seen as people who are fleeing a terrible violence not as criminals who need to be locked up they say that one a silver lining of all of this is that outside of latino communities in the united states perhaps it has raised public awareness of the plight of these people and
they hope that that will translate into more comprehensive immigration reform if you don't just play a richardson there in san diego california near the us mexico border well german chancellor angela merkel is in jordan major refugee host country amid an escalating domestic conflict over migration that has shaken her coalition government back of visited amman's german jordanian university before holding talks with king a bolo where migration policy will top the agenda hundreds of thousands of displaced syrians including some initially hosted by jordan have migrated all in word to europe with germany as a key destination. well d.w. chief political editor. is traveling with the chancellor and joins us now from amman jordan why is markel visiting jordan and lebanon now is this visit connected with the political crisis in her government over migration back home.
