Trump tells GOP to 'stop wasting their time' on immigration

House Republicans fail to pass conservative immigration bill postpone vote on compromise bill

The eight minutes of audio more than anything else - even the now-controversial photo of a young girl crying - came to define the human face (or voice) behind this policy change by the Trump administration. "We made a decision to put a pause on the bill and held a conference last night".

Thursday's uncertainty resulted from the abrupt ending Wednesday of a White House-sanctioned practice of separating more than 2,300 children from their parents over the past several weeks.

A pile of kids shoes left by mayors from USA cities lay at the front gate outside of the children's tent encampment built to deal with the Trump administrations "zero tolerance" policy in Tornillo, Texas. "We denounce a zero tolerance policy, which leads to the detention of all children who are seeking asylum".

Trump's policy took children away from parents who were apprehended crossing the border illegally. "There was no hidden message".

Also Friday, a group of almost a dozen independent human rights experts commissioned by the United Nations said the new USA policy "may lead to indefinite detention of entire families in violation of global human rights standards". Others said they had been deported without them.

"The attorney general didn't come while it's been sitting here for six months".

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va, said he "absolutely" would continue the immigration push. In some courts, the average wait for an immigration hearing was over 1400 days; some hearings are being scheduled beyond 2021 before an available slot on the docket is found. "What's going to the more than two thousand children that have been separated already?" His order seemed to stem some of the urgency for Congress to act.

U.S. President Donald Trump urged Republican lawmakers on Friday to drop their efforts to pass comprehensive immigration legislation until after the November elections, which he hoped would bring more party members into Congress.

Instead, Marwan Mohsen starts up front, with Huddersfield Town man Ramadan Sobhi also not in the starting lineup. From 1970 until Friday, Uruguay had lost three games and drawn another three in its opening World Cup games.

Trump signaled the more conservative bill's grim fate when he tweeted earlier Thursday: "What is the goal of the House doing good immigration bills when you need 9 votes by Democrats in the Senate, and the Dems are only looking to Obstruct (which they feel is good for them in the Mid-Terms)".

In Washington, the House killed a hard-right immigration bill Thursday and Republican leaders delayed a planned vote on a compromise GOP package, with party members fiercely divided on the issue. It provides $25 billion for Trump's wall, restrictions on legal immigration and language requiring the Homeland Security Department to keep migrant families together while they're being processed for illegal entry to the U.S.

The move does little to suggest that the bill will pass.

After a vote on the more conservative of two GOP proposals failed in the House Thursday afternoon, leadership announced it would delay a vote on the "compromise" legislation until next week. But Ryan believes Trump would need to veto that bill, and as his speakership winds down he's defending the president from having to cross that threshold. "This bill accomplishes both and crucially addresses the separation of children from their parents on our border", said Rep. Denham.

"What is the objective of the House doing good immigration bills when you need 9 votes by Democrats in the Senate, and the Dems are only looking to Obstruct (which they feel is good for them in the Mid-Terms)", Trump tweeted.

Pelosi said Republicans "have not ever been interested" in a bipartisan deal with Democrats and slammed the so-called GOP compromise bill."It is not a compromise", she said.
