For House GOP, One Doomed Immigration Bill Down, One to Go

Trump's immigration order replaces one crisis with another

"The President's Executive Order seeks to replace one form of child abuse with another".

As the number of children being held rose above 2,000, Trump continued to blame the Democrats for blocking a solution. "I don't know how they're going to go about fixing that".

The dramatic about-face comes just a day after President Trump signed an executive order ending his administration's widely denounced practice of separating families apprehended at the Mexico border.

"There is still some work to be done as we grapple with the immigration issues", Meadows said. "We're going to spend the weekend, delay a vote until next week and see if we can come to a compromise on those two final issues". However, it seeks to allow families to be detained together throughout the duration of their court proceedings. At the same time, we are keeping a very powerful border and it continues to be a zero-tolerance.

"They're bringing legislation to the floor that was negotiated exclusively between their right wing and their extreme right wing", he said. Under the new policy, government agents charged undocumented people with a crime and sent them directly to detention centers. He is concerned parents of dreamers would be able to use their children as a gateway to citizenship, rewarding their decision to enter the country illegally. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., told Trump he could change the situation with the stroke of a pen.

The executive order is likely to quell some, but not all of the criticism.

The action came after a firestorm of protest from administration opponents and allies, reacting to pictures and sounds of young children traumatized by their separation from their parents at the hands of US authorities.

Even if a bill clears the House, it would face an uncertain future in the Senate, where lawmakers are considering different measures and where Republicans would need at least nine senators from the Democratic caucus to join them to ensure any bill could overcome procedural hurdles.

An earlier report from Fox News Channel said the Trump administration was considering an executive order that would allow immigrant families who cross the border illegally to stay together longer than is now permitted. "It could take place quickly". "The attorney general didn't come while it's been sitting here for six months".

"If the president wants to weigh in more forcefully behind this one bill and say that this is important to his administration to pass, I think it could make a difference", Coffman said. "Congress and the courts created this problem, and Congress alone can fix it". Sessions was criticized after he quoted scripture to explain why the family separations were absolutely necessary, saying the separations were simply a matter of enforcing the law, which the Bible condones. When in doubt, you can't go wrong in a red district out-border-hawking Trump. For the Pentagon, that could include building new housing. The Obama administration had tried something similar. What happens after 20 days, the limit a court settlement now allows for children to be detained? The separation of children from parents has led to bipartisan protest across the United States and Congress as images of children in cages and sounds of crying babies dominated the news and social media.

Under a previous class-action settlement that set policies for the treatment and release of minors caught at the border, families can only be detained for 20 days. It is immoral to lock up children for an undetermined amount of time while families wait through a drawn-out legal process. "There are workable alternatives", president Richard Cohen said in a statement.

Trump said there was a need to remain tough to prevent crime.

Trump said he couldn't change the policy of separating children from their parents at the border.

Trump, earlier Wednesday, told a group of lawmakers at the White House that the images of sobbing and frightened young children being taken away from their parent by USA authorities "affect everybody". We rate this a Full Flop. "I didn't like the sight or the feeling of families being separated".
