SWAMP STRIKES BACK: Conservative Immigration Bill FAILS, 41 Republicans Vote AGAINST

Ryan House voting Thursday on bill to keep families together Greg Nash

"And we worked closely with President [Donald] Trump to develop a new border security bill".

While predicting the public's attention will drift elsewhere before this November's midterm elections, where Republicans will fight to maintain control of the House, King voiced support for the administration's "zero tolerance" policy of criminally prosecuting immigrants, as long as the policy is carried out in an orderly fashion. That's just what he did. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., that called for strengthening border security and offered temporary protections for so-called Dreamers, immigrants brought to the country illegally as children. Justice Department lawyers were planning to file a challenge to the Flores settlement, which requires the government to release children from custody and to their parents, adult relatives or other caretakers, in order of preference. "The attorney general didn't come while it's been sitting here for six months".

The executive order is likely to quell some, but not all of the criticism.

He could not say what happens to all the children already separated from parents.

And it didn't do much for the teeming outrage over the issue. It's kabuki, doomed to fail, orchestrated by centrists just so that they can virtue-signal to constituents ahead of tough races back home.

The focus has shifted to a new plan to keep children in detention longer than now permitted, but with their parents. "There are workable alternatives", president Richard Cohen said in a statement.

Instead, the children could be detained with their parents for extended periods.

"The U.S. authorities create different files for the children than for the parents, and it's very hard to follow up on those cases", Torres said.

Trump's family apparently played a role in his turnaround.

Brexit defeat for United Kingdom government
Theresa May put off a likely Commons defeat last week by promising rebels a compromise on the issue in the European Union withdrawal bill.


Republicans wrote the food stamp provisions without input from Rep. Collin Peterson (Minn.), the top Democrat on the House Agriculture Committee.

Even though Trump has acted unilaterally to stem the family separations, lawmakers still prefer a legislative fix. He again cited Trump's opposition to what would have been the final product of the legislation supported by moderate Republicans and the Democrats. "It is now split between traditional, rural conservatives - the kind who hold their noses and vote for the farm bill because they want those commodity programs - and the ideologues in the Freedom Caucus who think all spending is bad".

Two people close to Nielsen said she was the driving force behind the turnabout that led to the new order keeping families together. That's according to aides who demanded anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the situation publicly.

Knight said that he knows the leadership-supported bill will probably go down in defeat but he still wanted to cast his affirmative vote so that his constituents know he wants to grant citizenship to those benefiting from the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The status quo on the border puts us in danger, and our current immigration system keeps the best and brightest from coming here legally. Democrats argue that they would, if passed, allow the government to detain families together indefinitely.

Members were also confused because leaders were forced to update their hastily written bill after a $100-billion error was discovered.

If those options are exhausted, authorities must find the "least restrictive" setting for a child who arrived without parents.

Family detention surged during President Barack Obama's term when a surge of Salvadoran, Honduran and Guatemalan immigrants raced into the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, fleeing violence and poverty, leading the Department of Homeland Security to significantly increased its capacity to house families. Children are separated from their parents, held in separate facilities and then sent to a shelter and eventually to stay with sponsors.

In 2015, a federal judge in Los Angeles expanded the terms of the settlement, ruling that it applies to children who are caught with their parents as well as to those who come to the US alone.

To combat worries that he looks "soft" on immigration, Mr Trump unleashed a series of tweets in which he played up the dangers posed by the high-profile MS-13 gangs, which make up a minuscule percentage of those who have crossed the border. This is a workaround to a Supreme Court ruling known as Chevron Deference.
