President Trump Injects Fresh Chaos Into Immigration Debate

President Trump's comments Friday dismissing a Republican compromise immigration bill that includes a provision meant to stop family separation at the US border rocked Capitol Hill, scuttling Republican leaders' plans to gauge support for the proposal Friday and potentially tanking its chances on the House floor in a vote tentatively planned for next week. But, he said, "I certainly wouldn't sign the more moderate one".

The compromise bill is the product of weeks of negotiations among lawmakers as House Republican leaders moved to defuse a rebellion from moderates seeking action to protect young immigrants who were brought to the country illegally as children.

Trump's pooh-poohing of the moderate immigration bill also makes it less likely that moderate Republicans can persuade some of their conservative counterparts, or skeptical Democrats, to vote for it.

"The practice of separating children from their parents at the border is inhumane, it's barbaric and it's abusive", says Sharon Golden, of Together We Will L.I. "So I'm very disappointed".

What changed? For one, the sun set and rose - and a new news cycle started, including the president's favorite morning cable news show, "Fox & Friends", with an anchor on the North Lawn all morning. Mrs. Pelosi said there may be "uprisings" over children who are separated at the USA southern border when asylum seekers decide not to arrive at a proper checkpoint.

Demonstrators protest Trump administration policy that enables federal agents to separate undocumented migrant children from their parents.

Both bills have stringent border security provisions.

Rep. Patrick McHenry is the House GOP's second-ranking vote counter.

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., told reporters Friday that he believes Trump has an accurate understanding of what is in the draft compromise and is simply pushing for the most conservative bill - not ending the talks. Ryan put down a rebellion in his own caucus and headed off a clean DACA authorization that nearly succeeded in coming to the floor via a discharge petition, promising to allow both groups to craft their own bills for floor votes.

When House Republicans released the compromise immigration measure Thursday, even supporters said it didn't yet have enough support to pass the House.

Donald Trump says he hasn't heard from a single National Football League player after asking them to help advise him on who should get a presidential pardon.

"The Democrats are forcing the breakup of families at the Border with their frightful and cruel legislative agenda", he tweeted.

The White House later put out a statement formally endorsing the measure.

Both the conservative and compromise bills would provide money for Trump's long-sought border wall with Mexico. The White House has cited the Bible in defending its "zero tolerance" approach to illegal border crossings. And a majority of lawmakers from both parties don't support the proposals in the conservative bill to cut legal immigration, such as scaling back the number of citizens allowed to sponsor family members and canceling a visa lottery. "The compromise bill would halt the separation of immigrant families" says another Bloomberg article.
