The Trump administration's move to separate immigrant parents from their children on the U.S. -Mexico border has been brewing since the week President Donald Trump took office, when he issued his first order signaling a tougher approach to asylum-seekers.
O'Rourke added he would join a march to Tornillo, Texas, where Democratic lawmakers plan to visit immigration centers and would also introduce a measure to end family separation.
