I don’t know all the details of Trump’s executive order but then neither does he. This much is clear. There are no plans to reunite the 2,342 children with their parents who are now incarcerated.

American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) Background
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Learn about the groups that really run the GOP and look beyond the rhetoric of saving babies, putting prayer back in school and gay and immigrant fear talk. Even if these things happen it will be to ensure the support of the ALEC and libertarian agenda not God’s agenda. Basically they will continue to ensure certain Christians keep really voting libertarian morality. These ALEC type groups are normally referred to as conservative / republican think tanks.... since when is the promotion of Selfishness morality and destruction of altruism as a morality conservative or Republican??? This group and the other conservative thinks tanks working with them to undermine humanity for short term selfish gains are Libertarian not Republican. The libertarian sleazy giant snake has in fact totally swallowed the Republican Party at this point. The libertarian morality is the opposite of Christian or all faith in any deity based morality. This is not conservative by any measure. This is radical and socially destructive.

The Hidden Influence of the American Legislative Exchange Council

The Hidden Influence of the American Legislative Exchange Council | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it

The little known conservative think tank, the American Legislative Exchange Council, is very influential in state legislatures.  That influence may have earned ALEC an IRS inquiry. 
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Seriously this article is a good starting place for a brief background. Written in 2011 ALEC has now taken 30 of 50 states houses under control of policy makers and governors that push ALEC’s members’ agenda. AT&T & other ISPs and cable corporations are State ALEC Corporate Chairs or Co chairs in 12 out of 50 states as of a few years ago. Is it any wonder theses companies won so very hugely on every level this year????
