House will delay vote on GOP compromise immigration bill until Friday

LISTEN Border agent mocks migrant children crying for parents at detention center

"We're going to have strong, very strong borders, but we're going to keep the families together", said Trump, who added that he didn't like the "sight" or "feeling" of children separated from their parents.

The president's policy retreat followed a withering attack by Republican and Democratic officials who characterized the family separations as inhumane.

Mr. Trump called in to the Republican meeting, looking to urge the bill along.

Meadows has also taken issue with a drafting error on the so-called trigger mechanism in the bill that would prevent Dreamers from accessing the special visa created under the bill if a future Congress removes or reallocates funding the bill appropriates for a border wall.

The House on Thursday narrowly passed a $860 billion farm bill that strengthens work requirements for food stamp recipients.

The House prepared to vote on a Republican immigration bill containing language aimed at halting the taking of immigrant children from parents being detained for illegally entering the US.

In the meantime, the issue of family separation is pressuring Republicans to act as midterm elections loom. It also contained $25 billion for a Southwest border wall.

"It may be a compromise with the devil, but it's not a compromise with the Democrats in terms of what they have in their bill". Instead, the president attacked the US asylum system and accused Democrats of preventing action on immigration...

While the exact whip count on the compromise bill is unclear, it is possible more Republicans would oppose it than the 41 GOP members who voted against a conservative measure by Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte.

Amodei was critical of GOP leadership and said the procedure being used "represents a new low" for the legislative system.

What a swath of conservative Republicans-who don't trust Ryan and think they're being cheated, as usual-want now is "to make sure the President is very visible in his support for both bills this week", as Rep. Mark Walker (R-NC) from the other conservative wing, the Republican Study Committee puts it.

If successful, that rogue group of Republicans, using a parliamentary device called a "discharge petition", would have exposed the lame-duck speaker's weakness in controlling the floor.

"I hope that we will be able to pass this tomorrow", Mr. Ryan said. But for extended detentions to keep families together beyond that timeframe it is "critically important" for Judge Dolly Gee of the U.S. District Court of Central California to make a ruling, according to Hamilton.

In an eleventh-hour effort to round up votes, Ryan took two dozen wavering lawmakers to the White House Wednesday so Trump could cajole them into supporting the bill.

Some aspects of the bills overlap, but one of the main differences between the Goodlatte bill and the compromise measure is how they treat the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

The moderates agreed to hold off on a discharge petition that would have forced four immigration votes - two on bills supported more by Democrats and than Republicans - to negotiate a compromise with their GOP colleagues. President Donald Trump seemed to undermine the effort with a tweet suggesting any measure the House approved would be doomed in the Senate anyway. Trump's order said the government would maintain a "zero tolerance" policy toward those who break the law, but the senior USA official, asked to explain how the government would change enforcement practices, said Border Patrol agents were instructed Wednesday evening to stop sending parents with children to federal courthouses for prosecution.

Theirs is narrow legislation proposed by Senator Ted Cruz that would allow detained families to stay together in custody while expediting their deportation proceedings.

While Trump continued to blame Democrats for the border policy, the administration actively sought to mitigate the fallout, sending first lady Melania Trump on an unannounced trip to the Texas border to observe a detention facility.

"Trump's order replaces one crisis for another: children don't belong in jail at all, even with their parents, under any circumstances".

The House bill is a compromise between the conservative and moderate factions that dragged on for several weeks. The only reason it's newsworthy is that House conservatives pleading with Trump to declareth the bill Amnesty or Not Amnesty is further evidence of how cowed even the "principled" members of the GOP caucus are by him.
