White House official says president misspoke on immigration bill

House Speaker Paul Ryan, although he said he does not agree with separation of immigrant families at the border bla GOP Drafts Bill Overturning Policy of Separating Families at Border

Shortly after the president's comments, House Speaker Paul Ryan's leadership team suspended their Friday plans to build support for the more moderate of the two draft bills, which would protect 1.8 million "Dreamers" from deportation and provide them a path to citizenship.

Trump had said in the interview with "Fox & Friends" Friday that he was looking at two House immigration bills, but that he "certainly wouldn't sign the more moderate one".

"I hate the children being taken away", Trump said Friday morning.

President Donald Trump will head to Capitol Hill on Tuesday evening to discuss immigration with the House Republican conference, three sources tell CNN. Trump told reporters he opposes a "moderate" proposal put forward by House Republicans to fund a wall along the Mexico border and a path to citizenship for some immigrants who arrived in the US illegally as children. "I have to have that".

Both bills include provisions to stop the catch-and-release practice, which now sees thousands of illegal immigrants being released into the United States with court dates years down the road.

GOP aides said Trump's remark caught party leaders off-guard, and White House officials did not immediately respond to requests to clarify the president's comment.

The interviewer had specifically asked whether Mr. Trump supported a conservative bill penned by Rep.

Congressional Republicans, keen to secure an end to a policy separating children from their parents at the United States border, received unclear marching orders from President Donald Trump on Tuesday after a meeting on Capitol Hill. 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 100 percent sign either Goodlatte or the other bill".

Saddling the debate is mounting public outrage from both sides of the aisle over families being ripped apart at the border.

Meadows said his bill is a backup plan if the House fails to pass broader immigration proposals this week.

We need borders, we need security. "These are crippling loopholes that cause family separation, which we don't want", Trump said. He said he wants Congress to provide him with a third option: to deport families as a unit.

During a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Ind., on Thursday, Sessions said, "That is what the law calls for - and that is what we are going to do".

The bill also includes a host of other Trump administration priorities, such as allowing for the lengthy detention of undocumented immigrants awaiting deportation, making it harder for individuals to pursue asylum in the USA and several provisions that would require cities to comply with federal immigration enforcement requests and would allow victims of violent crimes committed by undocumented immigrants to sue the cities where they happened, an attempt to crack down on sanctuary cities.

Jess Morales Rocketto, political director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, said the "outrage and opposition will only keep growing if the administration continues this cruelty of separating families".

Ryan, R-Wis., said Thursday that he disagrees with the new policy of splitting up immigrant families. Ryan and other Republicans have been working on the bill for weeks, and the speaker believed he had the president's support for the measure.

The White House sought the change.

The middle-ground measure would mandate that families be kept together for as long as they are in the custody of the Homeland Security Department, whose agencies staff border facilities and enforce immigration laws. Other parts of the measure would enact policies that conservative Republicans have balked at. Among them, family-related visas for the married children or adult siblings of US citizens as well as the 55,000 visas now available under the diversity lottery system for immigrants from other represented countries, including many in Africa. "And law requires that children who can not be with their parents be placed within the custody of HHS within 72 hours, something entirely different than the criminal justice system".

SNELL: The White House knew this.

"Having children does not give you immunity from arrest and prosecution", Sessions said.

The result has been a haphazard series of targeted legislative proposals from different factions of the GOP that address pieces of the problem, instead of a broader immigration overhaul effort.

A 1997 court settlement and subsequent rulings obligates federal authorities to release children to relatives or otherwise place them in the "least restrictive" setting possible, which the Trump administration has interpreted as requiring family separations when parents are incarcerated.
