Hours after Trump doubled down on his administration's "zero tolerance" approach that triggers separations of migrant children from their parents, Republican lawmakers emerged from the huddle energized that he would back legislation that House leaders expect to bring to a vote this week.
The order does not say where the families will be detained, or whether children will continue to be separated from their parents until the facilities are ready.

That's raised concerns about what happens to them and how long it will take to reunite families.
The president made clear that separating parents and children was "certainly not an attractive thing and does look bad", Representative Tom Cole said.
"The idea that the way to end family separation is to indefinitely jail kids with their parents in family gulags at the border is as morally reprehensible as separating kids from their parents", said Frank Sharry, executive director of America's Voice, an immigration advocacy group".
"The dilemma is that if you're weak, if you're weak, which some people would like you to be, if you're really, really pathetically weak, the country's going to be overrun with millions of people", Trump said.
Rep. Kristi Noem, R-S.D., said Trump told lawmakers he "would continue to support the legislation, and that people shouldn't be anxious that he would change his mind".
In the Senate, meanwhile, Republicans are rallying behind narrow legislation that would allow detained families to stay together while expediting their deportation proceedings.
Nielsen, the president and other officials have repeatedly said the only way to end the practice is for Congress to pass new legislation, though both Democrats and some Republicans have said the president could reverse it with a simple phone call.
