But the move leaves many questions unanswered.
Even as USA president Donald Trump reversed his immigration policy of separating migrant children from their parents and signed an executive order to that effect on Wednesday, politicians, activists and immigration lawyers remained unconvinced and maintained that it did not "fix the crisis".
The photo on the right was taken on June 17, 2018 at a border facility in McAllen, Texas, and was provided by the US Customs and Border Protection. "I didn't like the sight or the feeling of families being separated".
Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi called for the resignation of Kirstjen Nielsen, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security for backing Trump's claim that the White House was not "barbarically ripping children away from mothers".
"Thank you @POTUS for taking critical action ending family separation at our border", Ivanka wrote, referring to the acronym for president of the United States.
What does the executive order say?
The same can be said about earlier today when the former president made a decision to go on the offensive against Trump's harshly criticizing the child separation policy at our southern border. "It is unfortunate that Congress's failure to act and court orders have put the Administration in the position of separating alien families to effectively enforce the law".
What court orders is he talking about? The settlement was later modified to say that children should not be held longer than 20 days.
While it will not reverse the "zero-tolerance" policy on immigration, Trump is expected to sign an executive order that will let families to be held together during prosecution and deportation, according to CBS News.
What else did Trump order?
The president had, for most part, struck a defiant note as he tried to use the plight of the children to force congress to pass a broader law enhancing border security, curbing family based immigration. It would also end the diversity-visa lottery program, which makes eligible 55,000 people for entry each year from countries that are underrepresented, and cut the family-based visa program.

"We will respect all our opponents, particularly Argentina , but we will not adjust to them", he told reporters."We will play our style".
However, Republicans, who have a majority in both the upper and lower house, have signaled that they may not have sufficient votes to pass the legislation.
"We will be going through Congress".
The president faced mounting pressure from advocacy groups, lawmakers, foreign governments and even family members to end the policy separating families at the border.
Justice Department lawyers had been working to find a legal workaround for a previous class-action settlement that set policies for the treatment and release of unaccompanied children who are caught at the border.
That led to confusion and difficulty for parents as they tried to reunite with their children, who in some cases were sent across the country.
"There will not be a grandfathering of existing cases", said Wolfe, as quoted by the Times.
In 2015, a federal judge in Los Angeles expanded the terms of the settlement, ruling that it applies to children who are caught with their parents as well as to those who come to the US alone. I consider it to be a very important executive order. During the signing, Trump said, "the border is just as tough, but we want to keep families together".
"That's the reality for so numerous families whose plights we see and heart-rending cries we hear", he continued.
"At the same time we have compassion and want to keep families together".
Some on the right are equally dismayed.
