  • Trump We want border security not judges

The joint effort by the Democratic state attorneys general mirrors the battle over Trump's travel ban against several Muslim-majority countries - a battle they lost Tuesday in a 5-4 US Supreme Court ruling along ideological lines.

After Mr. Trump's executive order last week stopping separations, the Border Patrol no longer has any option but to stop referrals as well, Mr. McAleenan said, according to The Associated Press.

U.S. border agents have "taken children as young as infants from their parents, often with no warning or opportunity to say goodbye, and providing no information about where the children are being taken or when they will next see each other", according to the complaint.

A defiant Trump has, however, said that his "zero tolerance" policy on undocumented immigrants, in which all unlawful border crossings are referred for prosecution, will continue.

Children who are being sent in the care of the Office of Refugee Resettlement are yet to be connected with their families, said Megan McKenna, a spokeswoman for Kids in Need of Defense.

We're going to run out of resources to keep people together.

He tweeted, "People must simply be stopped at the Border and told they can not come into the US illegally".

Rights groups have vowed to challenge any policy that detains families together for more than 20 days - the time allowed by the courts to hold children in immigrant detention centres.

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

"But we can't forget: The lives of real people hang in the balance".

Bill Nelson should have been able to "interact" with immigrant children in Homestead but not interview them, a Trump administration official said Tuesday.

A USA judge in San Diego already is considering whether to issue a nationwide injunction sought by the American Civil Liberties Union that would order the administration to reunite the separated children with their parents.

The outrageous result has been on display for all to see in recent days and weeks: children placed hundreds or thousands of miles away from their parents, with no procedures in place for them to communicate with each other, coordinate their immigration or asylum cases, track each other's whereabouts, or be reunited; in some cases, parent or child has been deported without the other's knowledge.
