Trump advises GOP: Quit wasting time on immigration

President Trump discusses immigration policy at the White House on Wednesday

GOP leaders trying to persuade colleagues to seize the moment and tackle immigration problems by approving the bill, which includes $25 billion for Trump's border wall and a path to citizenship for young immigrants who have lived in the USA illegally since childhood.

Trump's call for Congress to postpone action came as House Republican leaders failed to garner enough support for two bills that would overhaul USA immigration laws and bolster border security.

Trump told fellow Republicans in Congress to "stop wasting their time" on immigration legislation until after the November elections. "I want to solve this problem as quickly as possible".

Asked what he'd do if both votes fail, Ryan said he would "cross that bridge if we get to it" before emphasizing that his goal was not to pass legislation, but rather to prevent the discharge petition from dictating which legislation the House would consider.

GOP committee members were able to quickly remedy the mistake but the incident sowed further doubt among skeptics who already anxious about the contents of the sweeping legislation. Their task is more daunting in the Senate, where they need to pick up only two seats for a majority but are defending 26 seats to just nine held by Republicans. He said then he wanted Congress to pass a more comprehensive immigration bill.

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.

It was widely expected to fail in the chamber, and was defeated 231-193.

At town halls in tony bedroom communities a river-jump from Manhattan, he regularly finds himself trying to soothe voters who shout into microphones about President Trump's latest antics.

Another retiring lawmaker, Republican Congressman Mark Sanford of SC, a frequent Trump critic who recently lost his primary election, said Trump's reversal sends "a horrifically chilling signal" that "makes immigration reform that much more unlikely".

Aboard Air Force One on Saturday en route to Las Vegas, Nevada, Trump lashed out at House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY, accusing them on Twitter of favoring illegal immigrants over American citizens. "Dems should join POTUS and fix our broken immigration system", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted. Leadership promised conservatives a vote on the measure in exchange for consideration of the annual farm bill - which hard-line members of the House Freedom Caucus torpedoed last month over their demands for a vote on the Securing Americas Future Act.

Since about April, feds say, roughly 27,000 people have been detained while trying to illegally cross the southern USA border in a family group. In the June 18 letter to House members, Bishop Joe S. Vasquez of Austin, Texas, chairman of the USCCB's Committee on Migration, expressed concern with the compromise measure's cuts to family-based immigration, as well as the "harmful" changes to the asylum system and its lack of protections for unaccompanied children. He focused on the fact that young migrants separated from parents are likely to be reunited, unlike the victims of murders.

The White House counter-narrative came even as Democratic lawmakers, including Indian-Americans, excoriated the administration for its policy, and the poor handling of its reversal, with no clarity on how children separated from incarcerated parents would be reunited. It's not clear exactly how many now in the homes were separated from their parents during a recent crackdown on illegal crossings of the U.S. -Mexico border.

And the reality is that what - regardless of what the president says, House Republicans need to vote on this. A day earlier, the Pentagon agreed to provide space for as many as 20,000 migrants on USA military bases.

The notification said the Department of Health and Human Services or its contractors would provide all care for the children, from transportation and supervision to meals and clothing.

"Your loved ones have not died in vain", he told the group of so-called Angel Families at the White House on Friday, BBC reported.

"They think this is a good issue", he said in a speech to fire up delegates at Nevada's state GOP convention.
