As Trump walked out of the session in the Capitol basement, he was confronted by about a half-dozen House Democrats, who yelled, "Stop separating our families!"

Still, Trump's order is likely to create a new set of problems involving length of detention of families, and may spark a fresh court fight.

The children are largely from Central American countries, where violence and gangs have forced many to flee. And he took a jab at Rep. Mark Sanford, congratulating the South Carolina Republican on his recent campaign, according to others granted anonymity to discuss the private meeting.

Mr Cruz's bill would double the number of federal immigration judges, authorise new temporary shelters to house migrant families and limit the processing of asylum cases to no more than 14 days - a goal immigrant advocates say would be hard to meet.

- US policy allows children to be separated from adults under certain conditions.

The request for temporary shelter - amid a growing political battle over detained migrants - was made by the Department of Health and Human Services and accepted by the Defense Department, said the spokesman, Army Lt. Col. Jamie Davis.

Hundreds of immigrant children have been flown to shelters in cities far from where their parents are held.

It also allows the Department of Homeland Security to separate children from parents if they believe the child may be in danger.

He added: 'It's the Democrats fault, they won't give us the votes needed to pass good immigration legislation.

US Customs and Border Protection said on Tuesday that 2,342 children had been separated from their parents at the border between May 5 and June 9.

The Trump administration says parents who present themselves at official ports of entry along the worldwide border and seek asylum won't be prosecuted and won't be separated from their kids.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters he was reaching out to Democrats for bipartisan backing, since the proposal would need to reach a 60-vote threshold to advance in that chamber. It said HHS personnel or contractors for HHS "will provide all care for the children", including supervision, meals, clothing, medical services, transportation and other daily needs.

Reporter: How is this not child abuse?

From March to May this year, more than 50,000 people a month were apprehended for illegally crossing the border from Mexico.

Unaccompanied minors can be held by the Border Patrol for up to 72 hours and are then transferred to the Office of Refugee Resettlement.

Congressman Chris Collins said Trump mentioned his daughter had "seen the images" and said they should deal with the crisis "for a lot of reasons", according to CNN. Sponsors must be a parent, legal guardian or immediate relative. It would also offer an eventual path to citizenship for undocumented adult immigrants, known as Dreamers, who entered the U.S. as children.

Children are placed in foster homes when suitable sponsors are not found. The decision did not state parents must be released.

Their cases usually take years to resolve because of the big backlog in immigration courts, where judges decide whether the children can stay in the USA or must be returned to their home countries.
