Republicans aim to debate immigration bill next week, ignoring Trump plea

"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)", Trump tweeted.

Trump signed an executive order requiring immigrant families be detained together when they are caught entering the country illegally for as long as their criminal proceedings take.

He adds: "Obama and others had the same pictures, and did nothing about it!'"

"Republicans should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November", Trump wrote.

He accused Democratic members with "just playing games" and having "no intention" of helping Republicans "to solves this decades old problem".

"If these bills do not pass today then we will cross that bridge when we get to it", he said on Thursday morning, "But the last thing I want to do right now is undercut the votes that we're about to have".

Asked Thursday what happens if both immigration votes fail, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said, "We'll cross that bridge if we get to it". He has falsely blamed Democrats for forcing them to enforce the policy.

Federal agencies were working to set up a centralized reunification process for the remaining separated children and their families at the Port Isabel Detention Cente just north of border in Texas, said the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Trump himself took a hard line on the crisis, accusing the Democrats of telling "phoney stories of sadness and grief". Democrats argue that they would, if passed, allow the government to detain families together indefinitely.

Government lawyers will "prosecute adults who cross our border illegally instead of claiming asylum at any port of entry", Sarah Isgur Flores, a Justice Department spokeswoman, said Thursday in a statement.

He focused on the fact that young migrants separated from parents are likely to be reunited, unlike the victims of murders.

The Pentagon has begun drawing up plans to house as many as 20,000 migrants in USA 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. It was unclear how numerous children were still being detained with their families.

Trump said Friday that even if a measure passes, it's doomed in the Senate.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy says it's "important" that his chamber shows it's addressing the issue, which is an important one to voters. They're not separated for a day or two days, they are permanently separated. "We're going to be smart and strong, not reckless, rash, and ruthless".

That said, there is one narrow piece of immigration policy that Congress might actually be able to pass: namely, some measure that prevents immigration authorities from separating migrants from their children. But other parents have said they didn't know where their children were.

There were also signs that the administration was dialing back, at least for now, its "zero tolerance" policy of prosecuting all adults caught crossing into the USA illegally.

They held posters reading "Child Snatcher" in large letters with photos of Nielsen - who has faced intense scrutiny as the public face of the hardline border policy.
