Protesters, Democrats want immigrant families reunited

Trump renews call to end filibuster amid immigration furor The Border Security And Immigration Reform Act

Representative Carlos Curbelo, one of the lawmakers negotiating a Republican compromise immigration bill in the House, said the effort was continuing. "We will secure our borders..."

U.S. president Donald Trump may have doomed the chances for a House Republican immigration bill after urging party lawmakers to abandon the compromise effort they have been working on for weeks, the media reported.

"It's devastating because I already know when I meet them for the first time and they start telling me that they are this parent that I'm not gonna have the answers that they want in any time that they should have", said attorney Erik A. Henshaw, who works in the Western District of Texas in El Paso.

Florida Sen. Bill Nelson and four of the state's Democratic House members are touring a detention center where about 100 immigrant children taken from their parents are being held.

"I think the president's expressing his frustration that Democrats don't want to solve the problem while we do, and we're going to keep working to try to get it done", Scalise said.

The bill would also require the government to separate fewer migrant children from parents when they are detained and finance Mr Trump's proposed wall with Mexico.

In a Quinnipiac University poll released Monday, two-thirds opposed Trump's now-discontinued policy of separating kids from their parents when they cross the border; 79 percent supported allowing the dreamers to become citizens, even though Trump revoked the protection against deportation granted to them by President Barack Obama, and two-thirds said the 11 million unauthorized immigrants now in the US should be given a path to citizenship.

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

Trump says: "We can not allow all of these people to invade our Country".

President Donald Trump holds up the executive order he signed to end family separations, during an event in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, Wednesday, June 20, 2018.

Calling for a "strong" border, he says: "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".

"We got 193 votes yesterday on a bill the leadership said wasn't even close, right?" said Pennsylvania Rep. Scott Perry, a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus.

Trump's new message follows months of gridlock in Congress on immigration reform and his repeatedly blaming Democrats for the mess. 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.

"We're gathered today to hear directly from the American victims of illegal immigration". Trump's crackdown hasn't deterred them, at least not yet.

Earlier this week, HHS requested that the Pentagon be prepared to house up to 20,000 unaccompanied migrant children at USA military bases.

Some reunifications were taking place, though it was unclear whether they involved the 700 children taken from parents between October and April, or the 2,300 since the mandatory prosecution of illegal border-crossers, whose children were taken away as a result, began in early May.

"What is happening in this country is disgusting", said Bilbao, who worked as a cleaning woman before becoming a legal resident and now works for an immigrant rights group.
