Republicans aim to debate immigration bill next week, ignoring Trump plea

Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump both told him in private conversations that he had a problem that needed to be addressed a White House official said

Sirine Shebaya, a senior staff attorney with Muslim Advocates, said she and two other lawyers met about 70 detained Central American migrants at Port Isabel on Friday and Saturday.

"What the president just signaled is, 'I'm not going to be there.' And therefore I think people will take the cue", Sanford said.

An ICE officer replied in a note in English: "I do not have this information". The mothers themselves could not be contacted because access to detained immigrants is hard.

Mr Trump said on Friday that even if a measure passes, it is doomed in the Senate.

The federal government and Congress scrambled on Friday to address the many unanswered questions raised by the hastily drafted executive order Trump issued on Wednesday.

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.

He emphasised that his government's first duty and highest loyalty was towards the citizens of the United States, towards ensuring safety in the country and along the borders.

Rep. Elizabeth Esty, D-Conn., said Border Patrol agents grappling with the issue at the facilities were "concerned and confused". "We should be changing our laws, building the Wall, hire Border Agents and Ice and not let people come into our country based on the legal phrase they are told to say as their password".

President Donald Trump speakss on immigration at the South Court Auditorium on the White House complex.

He also called on Congress to work together on comprehensive immigration reform, but he said he doesn't expect much cooperation from "obstructionist" Democrats.

He fell back to defend and raced forward alongside Edinson Cavani on the counterattack. We couldn't equalize, but we controlled the play.

"Republicans should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November", he tweeted. In a series of tweets, Trump said, "Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solve this decades-old problem".

More than two dozen Democratic U.S. House members are touring immigration facilities for a firsthand look at the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy.

In fact, many analysts say the party could suffer losses this November when all 435 House seats and a third of the 100-member Senate will be up for grabs.

"The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of Republican control", Mr. Willwrote. The Speaker has vowed not to allow a vote on any legislation that a majority of House Republicans oppose.

Trump rejected earlier bipartisan efforts to strengthen border security and allow the dreamers to remain.

Republican Rep. Mike Simpson of Idaho said lawmakers who are counting on Trump to provide a presidential nudge should reconsider.

The president's comments come a day after House GOP leaders delayed a major immigration bill until at least next week, according to Reuters.

But he did defend the "zero tolerance" policy of pressing criminal charges against those suspected of crossing the border illegally - which Trump previously used to justify the family separations.

And once they got 213 signatures on that document, Ryan scrambled to kill the effort by promising moderates a vote on similar legislation.
