U.S. President Donald Trump will reveal a proposal to reorganize the U.S. government at a cabinet meeting on Thursday, Axios reports. The proposal is titled, “Delivering Government Solutions in the 21st Century: Reform Plan and Reorganization Recommendations.” 

One of the major shake-ups in the proposal includes to, "merge the Departments of Education and Labor into a single Cabinet agency, the Department of Education and the Workforce."

Trump is defending his Wednesday executive order to end new family separations at the border, but says Congress needs to act to permanently fix the problem.

Speaking before a Cabinet meeting, Trump says “I signed a very good executive order.”

But he says the “only real solution” is for Congress to close loopholes in the immigration system, saying “If we don’t close these loopholes there is no amount of money or personnel in the world.”

As congressional Republicans look to pass sweeping immigration bills Thursday, Trump says Democrats are obstructionists and is accusing them of not caring about the children separated from their parents.

This spring, the Trump administration put in a place a zero-tolerance policy on illegal border crossings, resulting in children separated from families at the border.
