US President Donald Trump has promised action to keep families together amid fury over separations of undocumented child migrants from adults.”I’ll be signing something in a little while that’s going to do that,” he told reporters at the White House.The Department of Homeland Security has reportedly drafted an executive order to stop the policy, though its wording and scope is unclear.

Mr 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.Earlier on Wednesday, Republican congressional leader Paul Ryan said the House of Representatives will vote on Thursday “on legislation to keep families together”.

“We do not want children taken away from their parents,” he said at a news conference on Capitol Hill. “We can enforce our immigration laws without breaking families apart.”He did not immediately provide details of the bill, but said that it resolves the issue of so-called Dreamers, undocumented adult migrants who were brought to the US as children, “in a very elegant way”.
