A federal judge in San Diego this month allowed the suit to go forward, writing that the separation "arbitrarily tears at the sacred bond between parent and child" and appears to violate a "constitutional right to family integrity".
The US action has sparked outrage at home from both Trump's Democratic foes and his fellow Republicans and around the world, as well as concerns from even First Lady Melania Trump.
The policy directs border officials to refer for prosecution all immigrants apprehended while crossing the U.S. -Mexico border illegally. And it's uncertain if Trump's support will be enough to push any legislation through the divided GOP majority.
Heeding the echo chamber of criticism against the DHS family separation policy, Sen.
"T$3 his implementation of the court decision that says children need to be separated from their parents because their parent is being prosecuted - that has never happened before in the past from the time that this settlement took place through other administrations, both Democratic and Republican administrations", Meissner said.
House GOP leaders are revising their legislation amid a public outcry over the administration's "zero tolerance" approach to illegal crossings. Immigration is a critical issue across the West, not just in the USA, as Angela Merkel and Theresa May can attest.

The House is already embroiled in an election-year struggle over immigration legislation that threatens to hurt Republicans in November.
To address the rise of families being separated at the border, the measure proposes keeping children in detention with their parents, undoing 2-decade-old rules that limit the time minors can be held in custody.
