White House says Trump supports immigration bill, walking back earlier comments

  • House Speaker Paul Ryan said he isn't comfortable with separating immigrant families at the border

California Democratic Rep. Pete Aguilar, who has been working with Republicans who want a path to citizenship for Dreamers, the group of 1.8 million young immigrants, said Friday that his colleagues should take Trump's comments as a sign to abandon negotiations with the Freedom Caucus and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, to focus on the petition that was considered dead two days ago.

"I'm looking at both of them", Trump said of the two bills up for consideration.

Trump made his remarks in his weekly address and as House lawmakers are negotiating legislation that would limit some forms of migration, fund border security and would also grant protected status to some illegal immigrants brought to the country as children. "I have to have that". When White House Chief Of Staff John Kelly quieted down on addressing family separation, the Department of Homeland Security began testing the approach last summer in certain areas in Texas.

Evangelical leader Franklin Graham, son of "America's pastor" Billy Graham and a prominent Trump supporter, told the Christian Broadcasting Network on Tuesday, "It's disgraceful, and it's awful to see families ripped apart and I don't support that one bit".

"Go for it! WIN!"

The 293-page bill represents the kind of ambitious overhaul of the immigration system Republicans have long considered but have been unable to turn into law.

White House aides later Friday said they were unaware the president was ready to announce his opposition to the compromise measure, with one saying flatly: "It's his decision".

Trump took to Twitter on Friday afternoon to lay out his own requirements before he's willing to sign any immigration legislation.

"The president fully supports both the Goodlatte bill and the House leadership bill", deputy press secretary Raj Shah said.

Brooks said people can also contact their Congress members and representatives, putting pressure on them to pay a personal visit to adult and child immigrant detention centers to see their conditions and speak to the people inside.

This set off a teensy bit of confusion today, but the White House is reportedly scrambling to clarify that Trump actually misspoke.

In a six-week period from mid-April to the end of May, the Trump administration separated almost 2,000 children from their parents, the New York Times reported Friday.

"There are members wanted to have votes on their issues, there were members who wanted to have vote on the Goodlatte-McCaul bill, they're gonna get that".

Donald Trump says he hasn't heard from a single National Football League player after asking them to help advise him on who should get a presidential pardon. "They want them to be left alone", he said.

Diaz-Balart, one of the Republicans negotiating a compromise bill, said lawmakers like him will have a "major problem" if Trump doesn't back the immigration bill.

Dreamers is a term for a group of immigrants, mostly Hispanic, who were brought illegally over USA borders when they were children and have been living for years in limbo.

Almost 2,000 minors were separated from their parents or adult guardians who illegally crossed into the United States over a recent six-week period, officials said on Friday, as debate raged over how to end the deeply controversial practice.
