A subsequent ruling in 2016 required the government to release underage migrants from immigration detention within 72 hours and place them in the "least restrictive" settings possible, while generally barring the government from keeping children in family detention centres for more than 20 days.

President Donald Trump is reportedly considering signing an action that would prevent the separation of illegal immigrant parents from their children.

"I will say, with all of the numbers that you see, if we weren't strong on the border you'd have hundreds of thousands of people pouring through the border", Trump continued.

Trump and other administration officials, including Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, defended the policy up to the last minute, insisting that they enacted it in part because of a 2015 court order that cited a 1997 settlement known as the Flores agreement that says children can not be held in long-term detention, even with their parents. If caving into intense political pressure wasn't enough of a setback for the president, his executive order also misspelled the word "separation" as "seperation".

The House of Representatives planned to vote on Thursday on two bills created to halt the practice of separating families and to address other immigration issues.

A spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services - which is responsible for housing and caring for the already separated children - told NBC News it has no new orders on how to handle the children in its custody.

"No one wants to separate families and the president's action will ensure that those who are crossing our border illegally are detained and our laws are enforced", he said.
