House GOP Immigration Compromise Teeters Ahead of Votes

Were going to keep families together but we still have to maintain toughness or our country will be overrun by people, by crime, by all of the things that we dont stand for and that we dont want. At the same time, we are keeping a very powerful border and it continues to be a zero tolerance. At the same time, we don't want people coming into our country illegally'.

Trump said Thursday he was directing federal agencies to come up with a way to reunite separated immigrant children with their parents.

"It's the Democrats fault, they won't give us the votes needed to pass good immigration legislation".

The news in recent days has been dominated by searing images of children held in cages at border facilities, as well as audio recordings of young children crying for their parents - images that have sparked fury, questions of morality and concern from Republicans about a negative impact on their races in November's midterm elections. "I think anybody with a heart would feel very strongly about it".

Trump has said that it is loopholes like this that make proper immigration reform impossible and the government is simply enforcing the laws as they are.

"If you don't want your child to be separated, then don't bring them across the border illegally", Sessions said on May 7.

"They say, "say the following" - they write it down - "I am being harmed in my country, my country is extremely unsafe, I fear for my life" - 'say that, congratulations, you'll never be removed, '" Trump said.

Over the weekend, the First Lady spoke out against the policy, calling the children being separated from their parents something she "hates to see".

"Pursuant to these court decisions, minors detained as part of a family unit can not be detained in unlicensed facilities for longer than a presumptively reasonable period of 20 days, at which point, minors must be released or transferred to a licensed facility", according to a "Myth vs. Fact" statement provided by Homeland Security.

Trump said the zero-tolerance policy remains in effect.

At a White House cabinet meeting, he pledged to sign an immigration reform bill if Congress can pass it.

The move is aimed at stopping the separation of children from their families amid a new policy where anyone caught crossing the border is charged criminally.

But others pushed back on the idea that Homeland Security had led the rollback. The executive order promises only that the administration will detain alien families together "where appropriate" and where there exist "available resources", two potentially large loopholes. "Decisions whether or not to prosecute are the purview of the Department of Justice". Trump quickly reversed course to back the bill and swooped into the Capitol for a late huddle Tuesday with Republicans.

It includes funding for a border wall, along with a pathway to citizenship for the Dreamers - immigrants who illegally entered the USA as children. Her choice of accompanying garment, though, has left many to speculate on her true feelings about the policy that has so far left over 2,300 children stranded away from their parents.

The Trump administration, meanwhile, has asked the Defense Department to provide space at military facilities by the end of the year to house 20,000 children who have arrived in the USA without any adults.
