In response, Omar Jadwat, director of the American Civil Liberties Union's Immigrants' Rights Project, called Trump's suggestion "both illegal and unconstitutional".

Weissert reported from Harlingen, Texas and Johnson reported from Seattle.

The hard deadline was set Tuesday night by U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego after President Donald Trump's order ending his policy of separating families gave way to days of uncertainty, conflicting information and no word from the administration on when parents might see their children again.

But Mr Trump had suggested the families would instead be detained together.

After falsely blaming Democrats for the separations and insisting that only Congress could fix the issue, the president last week issued an executive order created to end the practice under his "zero tolerance" policy, which prosecutes adults who come to the US illegally.

McAleenan insisted the administration's policy remains in effect despite the current challenges, and said he is working on a plan to resume prosecutions.

The lawsuit contends the Trump administration "violated the constitutional due process rights of the parents and children by separating them as a matter of course and without any finding that the parent poses a threat to the children", according to the release from the New York Attorney General's Office.

The border official's decision paves the way for U.S. immigration enforcement to revert largely to the approach under the Obama administration.

"Are you still receiving children who are there because of the family separation policy?" Seventeen states, including Washington, New York and California, are suing to force the Trump administration to reunite migrant families who have been separated at the U.S. -Mexico border. "We're simply out of resources". "What we have is very simple".

"We can not allow all of these people to invade our country", Trump wrote on Twitter on Sunday, as he reiterated his tough stance on immigration.

Is LeBron James set for a move to the Los Angeles Lakers? As far as I'm concerned, LeBron James is big-time player. And if they can also add Kawhi Leonard or Paul George , adding solid complementary pieces will be even easier.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said the military would help to house migrants at military bases, including two in Texas. For example, the adoption agency Bethany Christian Services now has custody of 81 migrant children, most of which have had zero contact with their parents.

"Speaking at a school-safety conference in Reno, Sessions cast the children as victims of a broken immigration system" and urged Congress to act. And Trump said after signing the order that officials will have "zero tolerance" for people crossing the border illegally. The measure requires the government to bring criminal charges against adults who are caught while trying to cross the border illegally.

The executive order also doesn't speak at all to reunifying separated families.

It said that Mr Trump's order to end separations contained "loopholes". Children older than that must be reunited within a month.

In one declaration filed with the brief, a mother identified only by her initials E.J.O.E. said the government told her she would be reunited with her son as she applied for asylum.

Late-night hosts unite against President Trump
He also described the comedians, including Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel , as "lowlifes", "lost souls" and "terrible". He also said he had made a donation to an organisation that provides education and legal services to refugees in Trump's name.

A Missouri attorney says she broke her foot after she was pushed by an immigration agent while taking a 3-year-old boy to join his mother who was being deported to Honduras. The longer the justice department sits on their hands, the more impossible the situation becomes to manage, and these kids and their families will continue paying the price for the U.S. governments egregious lack of foresight and basic decency.
