Donald Trump Just Told Republicans To Back Off Immigration Reform - For Now

The House postponed until next week a vote on a more moderate bill after it failed to attract enough support for passage.

House Republicans largely shrugged off the President Trump's tweet from Friday morning questioning the goal of voting on immigration bills in the House, with conservative members even seeing a potential opening to push through their preferred bill.

"Their ability to actually intelligently and logically deal with the immigration issue is being affected by the fact that every member of Congress is afraid of being primaried by a very conservative Republican candidate", Yarmuth said. He said he changed his mind by seeing images of children who have been taken from parents while they are jailed and prosecuted for illegal border-crossing.

Tens of thousands of immigrants traveling with their families have been caught on the U.S. -Mexico border in recent years, many fleeing gang violence in Central America.

Trump's comments come amid an worldwide outcry over the separation of migrant families at the southern border.

She called on Democrats to help Trump fix the immigration system - after Trump said Republicans should wait until after November's congressional elections.

The president's comments come a day after House GOP leaders delayed a major immigration bill until at least next week, according to Reuters.

Washington Free Beacon editor in chief Matthew Continetti said Wednesday that President Donald Trump and Republicans have not lost leverage on immigration if they take steps to keep families at the border intact.

How the Trump administration's story on family separations changed
POTUS, Nielsen and others were not telling the truth when they previously claimed only Congress could stop family separation. Under a court settlement, the federal government can not hold the children for more than 20 days.

"We can pass this legislation after the Red Wave", Trump tweeted. We can not allow our Country to be overrun by illegal immigrants as the Democrats tell their phony stories of sadness and grief, hoping it will help them in the elections.

Sen. James Lankford says the White House needs to do a better job explaining why families were being separated at the southern border.

In Florida, Argentine immigrant Maria Bilbao said she joined the protest because she came to the country 17 years ago with her then-9-year-old son and understands the fear of being separated from a child. But that rare moment of public capitulation was brief from the president, who laced his remarks at a rally in Minnesota that night with hardline immigration rhetoric that continued Friday.

The president also rattled off a litany of statistics that indicated that illegal immigrants commit violent crimes at a far higher rate than USA citizens, saying "you hear it's like they're better people than what we have, than our citizens".

The columnist went on to rip Mr. Trump as a "Vesuvius of mendacities" before concluding: "In today's GOP, which is the president's plaything, he is the mainstream".

Trump backed up his complaint with the unsupported claim that undocumented immigrants are more unsafe than the general population and shared statistics on crimes committed by undocumented immigrants without any context. But Trump's latest tweets could doom that effort. Doing so has been derisively called granting "amnesty" to those who entered the country illegally.
