Nervous Republicans Ask Trump to Save Ryan's Amnesty Bill

Nervous Republicans Ask Trump to Save Ryan's Amnesty Bill

If the compromise bill passes, it is likely to do so with exclusively Republican support. The support level hung around 170 Republicans for a while, and then at the end the number cleared 190 as lawmakers just chose to support it to protect their right flank in a future Republican primary.

Mr Cruz's bill would double the number of federal immigration judges, authorise new temporary shelters to house migrant families and limit the processing of asylum cases to no more than 14 days - a goal immigrant advocates say would be hard to meet.

Following that vote, House Republican leaders abruptly postponed voting on a compromise immigration measure amid ongoing infighting between conservative and moderates. Bob Goodlatte (R., Va.), at a closed-door GOP conference meeting on Tuesday night. The differences you can read about here.

The bipartisan legislation also included measures to restore protections from deportation for undocumented immigrants under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy that Trump ended in September.

Some moderate Republicans said they could start another petition drive next month, though they would have an even bigger climb and only a couple of weeks to gather signatures before the next window for action closes.

The White House even said last week that he'd sign the bill if it ends up on his desk. But 20 Republicans also voted no, giving GOP leaders a brief scare in what was their second attempt to pass a farm bill.

The delayed vote was on a compromise bill between GOP moderates and conservatives that would offer Dreamers a pathway to citizenship and provide $25 billion for Trump's border wall, among other things.

On June 15, McMorris Rodgers sent talking-points to GOP legislators to help them defend Ryan's amnesty bill when talking to their voters. The compromise bill also includes a trigger mechanism to prevent Dreamers from obtaining visas if a future Congress attempts to cut or reprogram the border security funding.

Donald Trump is directing agencies to reunite immigrant families separated at the US-Mexico border, he said during a meeting with his cabinet at the White House.

"I knew it was going to be razor-thin", Conaway said of the vote.

"I will say, with all of the numbers that you see, if we weren't strong on the border you'd have hundreds of thousands of people pouring through the border", Trump continued.

In the Senate, both Democrats and Republican have a plan to deal with family separation at the border, but those don't look like they have to votes to pass either. The executive order promises only that the administration will detain alien families together "where appropriate" and where there exist "available resources", two potentially large loopholes.

Facing global outcry over the separation policy, Trump had signed an executive order on Wednesday to stop the separations and keep families together during immigration proceedings.

"We've got to address the issue".

The House of Representatives planned to vote on Thursday on two bills created to halt the practice of separating families and to address other immigration issues.

The House rejected the conservative bill on a 193-231 vote, with 41 Republicans joining the opposition.

"I'm with you 1,000 percent!"

Trump, earlier Wednesday, told a group of lawmakers at the White House that the images of sobbing and frightened young children being taken away from their parent by US authorities "affect everybody". C'mon, this was always going to be a massive undertaking, and the odds were never in favor of passage.

The stalemate and delay underscore how far apart Republicans remain on immigration. Not one. So, do we pull the bills or do we grab some soda, popcorn, and watch the Hindenburg crash and burn?

Leadership aides confirmed to The Post negotiations on the bill continue and discussion has centered on e-verify and agriculture provisions.

"Right now we're focused on getting this bill passed", Ryan told reporters. "[Speaker] Ryan's operation is a clown auto". Barletta added that there was nothing leadership could do that would cause him to vote in favor of its "compromise".
