The Trump administration will suspend prosecutions of migrant parents with children who have been apprehended at the border, a top official told The Washington Post on Thursday.
Were suspending prosecutions of adults who are members of family units until ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] can accelerate resource capability to allow us to maintain custody, the official told the Post.
The change in policy comes one day after President Trump signed an executive order to stop separating immigrant children from their parents at the border.

Perhaps we should suspend prosecutions of LEGAL citizens i n the Us for all crimes too IF they have children?
I'll let the dust settle on this before screaming.
So is this just going to open the floodgates (again)?
Catch and release back on?
or Catch and suspend?
What a joke. If you commit a murder in Mexico, just grab a child and run for the USA!! This is bad policy!! Unaccompanied minors must be refoined with their parents in Mexico or returned to the very fine child care facilities paid for by Mexicans.
Has Trump been deceived, or was he deceitful himself on illegals?
Now the DOJ is denying the WaPo report.
This is madness, These illegal aliens should just take their 12 children to prison and their wives, parents, uncles and cousins!! But our policy is to STOP PROSECUTION??? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
I disregarded the report as soon as I saw who printed it.
Unaccompanied minors must be rejoined with their parents in Mexico or returned to the very fine child care facilities paid for by Mexicans.They are costing us $35,000 a year!! STOP THIS MADNESS!!
I guess we’ll see.
“Trumps order stated that the administration would keep its zero tolerance policy on prosecuting those caught illegally crossing the border.:” What happened to that? We go from “Zero” to 100% in one day. This sucks.
“...a top official told The Washington Post on Thursday...”
That says it all....
Set up ‘holding centers’ in the home countries of ‘illegals’... they can stay at the US Embassy controlled center or be let free (in their home country) until their case is heard.
The key to solving this problem is to take away THE PRIZE - BEING ABLE TO STAY IN THE UNITED STATES.
Keep families together - in their own countries... under the safety of our control.
Fake ,it’s from “The Hill” Of Crap
The Left and the MSM trying to get the Ultimate Flood of Illegals at the Border
