For House GOP, One Doomed Immigration Bill Down, One to Go

Evelyn Diaz president of Heartland Alliance looks on as U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin holds a news conference at Girl Forward after meeting children detained in Chicago as part of the Trump administration's decision to separate children from their immigrant pare

Some 2,300 children were taken from their parents since May under the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" policy.

"It could take a couple of months, a couple of days. but we don't have timelines", Jaimes Perez said.

Even when parents and children aren't separated, they are often housed in adjacent cells that keep them apart, the lawmakers said.

Numerous at least 2,300 children separated from their undocumented parents since May are in far-flung shelters and foster homes nationwide - hundreds of miles away from the southern border.

Hundreds of migrant children are able to hug their families again, despite the continued attack by the mainstream media on President Trump's hard-line immigration stance. "Shame!" at border agents.

Trump issued an executive order Wednesday to move to halt family separations, saying he was affected by the same images.

Several protesters tried to stop a bus full of children exiting the detention center.

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.

But it remained unclear late on Thursday how and when those children would be reunited with their parents, and where families would be held while the parents face criminal charges.

And the administration says it will now seek to detain immigrant families during their immigration proceedings, which has also stoked an outcry. They are immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.

Suns select big man Ayton as No. 1
The biggest story of the lottery may have been Michael Porter Jr . slipping all the way to the Denver Nuggets at No. 14. The top of it was dominated by big men, starting with a pair of former high school teammates.

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.

More protests are planned for next weekend in states from CT to California.

Meanwhile, the father of the girl who is pictured crying on the cover of this week's Time magazine said the Honduran Foreign Ministry told him that his daughter is detained with her mother in McAllen, Texas, and the two have not been separated.

The Pentagon has begun drawing up plans to house as many as 20,000 migrants in U.S. military bases, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement is looking into creating 15,000 beds, but officials have given conflicting explanations on whether they would be for children or for families.

They described seeing children sleeping behind bars, on concrete floors and under emergency "mylar" heat-resistant blankets.

When it comes to the Dream Act and family separation, argued Mark Krikorian of the pro-enforcement Center for Immigration Studies, the left's goal "is to make sure the parents also are released".

Goodwin said she has been inundated with requests from the parents, and the list is still growing. The president vacillated about whether to do it until a short time before he signed the order, one person said. "We haven't tapped out on the number of adults that have been separated".

"We're gathered today to hear from the American victims of illegal immigration", he said.

Goodlatte's bill would have provided funding for a wall along the southern border, ended the diversity visa lottery program, limited family-based visas, created an agriculture guest worker program require employers to use the E-Verify program - a pivotal provision in garnering conservative support - and allowed for the administration to cut funding toward sanctuary cities.
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. Parents were jailed and children taken to government-contracted shelters. Rumours of case dismissals forced federal prosecutors to deny that they have dismissed immigration violation cases in South Texas. A day earlier, the Pentagon agreed to provide space for as many as 20,000 migrants on USA military bases.

One of Colyer's leading GOP rivals is Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a conservative firebrand nationally known as an advocate of tough policies against illegal immigration, and he's advised President Donald Trump on homeland security issues.
