The [Monday] Papers

Now we know the number: 66.

*

"The attorney for a Brazilian woman whose son was taken from her at the US-Mexico border as part of the Trump administration's family separation policy plans to fly Chicago, where the boy is being held, to demand his release," the Boston Globe reports.

"The attorney, Jesse Bless, held a press conference at Logan Airport on Monday morning on his way to Chicago."

*

"The 9-year-old is being held at Heartland Alliance, an organization that operates shelters for unaccompanied minors in the Chicago area, Bless said.

"Bless said he and co-counsel in Chicago plan to file a lawsuit in federal court in Chicago asking a judge to force the government to release the boy."

*

"Over the last week, Souza and Bless have sent the organization a notarized 36-page application and additional documents in an effort to reunite mother and son. They were told that Souza must also submit fingerprints.

"Then, that directive changed, Bless said. Heartland Alliance told Souza that everyone in the home where she was staying must be fingerprinted, too. It would take more than a month to process the information and return the boy to his mother, he said.

"That's not good enough," he said, describing the process to reunite families as essentially nonexistent.

"It's a human tragedy being played out by the hour," said Bless. "She feels so guilty that he's inside, and she's outside. She told me in her own words that she doesn't think she's going to make it."

"So Bless said, they put Heartland Alliance on notice: Have the boy ready to go."

The Heartland Alliance says that's not possible; click through to find out why.

Meanwhile . . .

"The White House's hastily crafted executive order to end child separations spurred confusion and fights within the federal government, and second-guessing from the president who had demanded the order in the first place," the Washington Post reports.

"In private conversations with aides, Trump said he wanted to sign a full immigration bill as part of an executive order, which one administration official described as 'a pretty insane idea.' The president was told by government lawyers that he could not change immigration law by fiat, said a person familiar with the discussions.

"Trump then demanded that an executive order be written that would end child detentions in cages, and said he wanted it on his desk for signing by that afternoon, according to people involved in the discussions."

Later . . .

"Trump, for his part, has ruminated to aides that he should not have signed the order in the first place, according to people familiar with the conversations."

*

"Just a day before Mr. Trump signed it, one person close to the president said that he told advisers that separating families at the border was the best deterrent to illegal immigration and that he said that 'my people love it,'" the New York Times reports.

He's right about that. The problem this country faces isn't just Trump - it's the 40-something percent who steadfastly support him.
