The US political battle over migrant children separated from parents has shifted to Congress, after Donald Trump signed an order ending the practice.
The House of Representatives will vote on broader immigration bills which fund President Trump’s proposed border wall and reduce legal migration.
But Democrats oppose them and it is uncertain that they will pass.
Mr Trump reversed his policy after a public outcry at home and globally over the policy, widely seen as inhumane.
The order calls for the families to be detained together while their cases are considered.
