Trump undercuts House GOP: Don't waste time on immigration

Rep. Steve Russell R-Okla. left and Rep. Mike Gallagher R-Wis. walk to a closed-door meeting with House Republicans seeking more information about compromise legislation on immigration at the Capitol in Washington Thursday

"She was there with me but they separated us". Meanwhile, a 7-year-old boy and his mother, separated a month ago, were reunited Friday after she sued in federal court and the Justice Department agreed to release the child.

"Please could you send me a phone number so that I can communicate with my daughter?" read the note, which was written in Spanish and seen by Reuters. "I want Border Patrol, I want ICE".

Merida-Galicia, who is being held in California, is just one of many incarcerated immigrant mothers whose attorneys tell similar stories about chaotic situations in which the mothers don't know where their children have been taken or how to contact them.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement posted a notice saying it is looking into creating 15,000 beds for use in detaining immigrant families.

Trump, faced with a public outcry over his policy that separated children from their migrant parents at the USA border with Mexico, had urged Congress to take up immigration legislation to permanently prevent family separations.

President Barack Obama did not oversee the separation of 90,000 migrant children and their parents at the USA border, contrary to a misleading online report and claims circulating on social media.

"We were separated permanently". Trump said that one of the victims looked like the actor Tom Selleck.

Trump suggested on Friday that some of the wrenching tales that have emerged from the border were fabricated by Democrats.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy insisted the bill would be brought to the floor, where it faced an uncertain future and nearly certain rejection in the Senate, where Republicans' slim 51-49 majority makes some Democratic support necessary to pass most legislation.

Some Republicans in competitive races this fall broke with Trump on the policy but didn't directly blame the President, instead choosing to vaguely blame Washington or Congress.

Gary Lineker described their performance the other night as exceptional. "They need to keep their feet on the ground". There's no drama for me about it". "So of course our media has to decide whether they want to help the team or not.

"(He) wants Americans to believe that the hundreds of people we saw in this facility were a danger to them and to this country", the Himes said.

Their responses underscore the challenge facing the GOP in November's midterm elections: The party's base is still loyal to Trump and animated by the hardline anti-immigration platform he ran on.

"This isn't who we are", Coffman said. In a departure so notable that it trended on social media for hours, the Conservative oracle George Will, a widely respected columnist, went so far as to urge Republican voters to put the Senate and the House in Democratic hands in the November election to contain the White House.

The hard-right measure that failed Thursday did not include a path to citizenship for Dreamers, but would have also required immigration authorities to keep undocumented families together.

Bipartisan disagreement on how to fix the country's immigration system led to failure once again as lawmakers on Capitol Hill turned down one immigration bill June 21 and postponed a vote on a second proposal, which also has a slim opportunity of passing. But Trump's latest tweets could doom that effort.

Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a Republican who represents a majority Hispanic district in Florida and is not running for re-election, said Trump's tweets amounted to "schizoid policy making".

Trump made no mention of his Wednesday about-face on immigration, when he signed an executive order undoing his policy of separating migrant children from their parents amid widespread criticism. Minors in immigration custody should be housed in facilities meeting state standards for the care of dependent children, according to the settlement. Had they not come illegally to the United States, there would be no problem.

The policy, as originally articulated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, was viewed as a tool to discourage people coming up from dysfunctional countries in Central America to seek asylum at the US border with Mexico. About 9,000 such family units have been caught in each of the last three months, according to US border authorities.

The dramatic audio, first reported by ProPublica and later provided to The Associated Press, roiled the national debate over the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" approach to border crossings.
