President Trump Injects Fresh Chaos Into Immigration Debate

GOP Drafts Bill Overturning Policy of Separating Families at Border

Ryan brokered an agreement among House Republicans to vote next week on two immigration bills - a hard-line conservative measure and an alternative that Ryan and other GOP leaders have been negotiating with the many GOP factions in the House.

The tumult erupted as Republican leaders put finishing touches on two bills concerning immigration into the U.S.: a hard-right proposal and a middle-ground plan negotiated by the party's conservative and moderate wings, with White House input. The President misunderstood the question this morning on Fox News.

Late Friday afternoon, the White House clarified Trump's remarks and said he would sign both immigration bills should either reach his desk, which is highly unlikely.

The draft bill being circulated Thursday would provide money for Trump's US-Mexico border wall and allow provisional legal status for young undocumented immigrants who had been brought to the US as children. "I have to have that". "If you're a Republican and you're facing a challenging political environment and the president who is very popular in your district, not mine, says that he's against this bill, why in the world would you vote in favor of it?"

The president will meet with House Republicans later this week to work on immigration bills.

"He keeps us all excited about how we are going to get things done", Rep. Dennis Ross, a Republican from Florida and supporter of the compromise bill, told CNN.

The administration's crackdown on families crossing the border has led to a surge in the number of migrant children held in USA government custody without their parents. The moderates used a parliamentary move called a discharge petition in an attempt to force House action, but they fell two signatures short of what they needed to succeed.

"He would sign either the Goodlatte or the leadership Bills".

"We do not want to separate parents from their children", he said.

The confusion engulfed the House chamber during the last vote series of the week and was emblematic of an exercise that members have managed before during tax revisions and health care where Trump famously held a celebration of an Obamacare repeal bill in the White House Rose Garden only to turn around and call the bill "mean" later.

Trump's opposition is significant particularly since House Republican leaders said they had been working closely with administration officials on the compromise to ensure it was something the president would sign. With no guarantee of a border wall, a key promise and plank of the Trump agenda, White House officials want to make it known to their base that they're serious about immigration at least. "I hate the children being taken away", he said Friday.

Trump, in his interview, continued his effort to falsely portray family separation as something mandated by law, rather than chosen by his administration as a policy created to deter people from trying to enter the country illegally.

Trump tells reporters that he's looking at both plans.

If local law enforcement officials did not comply with an Immigration and Customs Enforcement request to hold an immigrant who is in the country illegally, and that immigrant was released and later commited rape, murder or sexual assault of a minor, the victim or the victim's family would be allowed to sue the jurisdiction, according to a draft of the bill released Thursday.

There are two bills slated for consideration next week: the Republican compromise bill and the conservative Goodlatte-McCaul bill.

"What we saw here today was heartbreaking", Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. of New Jersey said after he emerged from the ICE facility in his state. "I have to have that", Trump said.

The proposed House bills are set for votes next week.

Trump continued to falsely assert Friday that separating migrant families was a law spearheaded by Democrats.

But it is the Trump administration's decision to criminally prosecute parents crossing the border illegally, thus landing them in jail, that ultimately results in the separation.
