President Donald Trump signed an executive order yesterday (Wednesday) that would keep immigrant families at the border together.

Trump said the "zero tolerance" policy would continue but said his executive order is "about keeping families together while ensuring we have a powerful, very strong border."

He added, "Ivanka feels very strongly, my wife feels very strongly, I feel very strongly. Anybody with a heart would feel strongly about it."

President Trump announces he is singing an order to keep families together at the Mexican border, "but we still have to maintain toughness".

President Trump says it's hard to please both sides, those who want border security and those who want to keep families together.
