American president Donald Trump went through a huge controversy after he actioned his policy to separate illegal migrants from their family. Well, recently, there had been rumors that he was going to revive the policy, however, he disagreed saying he has no such plans.

Although the president dismissed his rumors of reviving the policy, he was firm with his idea that it had been an effective way to control illegal crossing of the border. He told the reporters at the Oval Office,

I'll tell you something, once you don't have it, that's why you have many more people coming, They are coming like it's a picnic, like 'let's go to Disneyland.'

Well, the Immigration advocacy groups are aware of the possibility that the administration might return to the "zero tolerance" policy as it has been consistently following the president's ideologies.

Concerning the issue, then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions reported a memo a year ago that suggested that all the immigrants entering the country would be prosecuted. However, a treaty made in 1997 that required the release of child immigrants within 20 days contradicted with Jeff's protocol.

Well, to meet both the circumstances, Trump administration ordered to separate children from the elders. But following immense pressure in June, Trump agreed to sign an order to end family separations.
