Trump urges Republicans to fix family separation crisis

Trump urges Republicans to fix family separation crisis

Ted Cruz, a Texas Republican who also happens to be fending off a surprisingly robust challenge by Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke from El Paso.

Trump spent 45 minutes ranting to House Republicans on everything from taxes to his pending lawsuits Tuesday evening, according to members in the meeting, while offering barely any info about whether he'd support the specifics of a pair of bills that closely follow the President's own policy goals on immigration.

Last Thursday, Roskam said in a statement, "Dragging children away from their parents ought not be a part of the solution", urging the administration "to reverse the zero tolerance policy that removes children from their parents at the border".

In the Senate, meanwhile, Republicans rallied behind a different approach.

"In his remarks, he endorsed both House immigration bills that build the wall, close legal loopholes, cancel the visa lottery, curb chain migration, and solve the border crisis and family separation issue by allowing for family detention and removal", Shah said.

Republican candidates in suburban districts near Denver, Houston, Miami, Philadelphia, and in southern California also came out against the policy, leaving a handful in battleground races who had not done so.

Centrist Republicans are increasing the pressure already with an ad here shared exclusively with Reuters, that will be released online by the centrist group New Way on Wednesday.

It would require an independent child welfare official to review any such separations and return the child if no harm is present, as well as mandate all Customs and Border Protection agents to complete child welfare training on an annual basis. "And it has to stop", the ad says.

Britain does not usually go out of its way to criticise a key ally, with the U.S. -U.K. relationship often referred to as "special", but relations have been strained by a series of tweets by Trump, from criticism about U.K.'s terrorism policy to its much-loved National Health Care.

House Republicans, like those in the Senate, say they're hoping to end the policy of tearing apart families - "It is not good for anyone when children get separated from their parents", moderate Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) said.

Illegal entry to the US has always been a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in prison, but previous administrations generally chose not to prosecute adults who crossed illegally with children and instead referred them to immigration courts.

Republican members of Congress, increasingly fearful of voter reaction in mid-term elections in November, met with President Donald Trump for about an hour at the Capitol to try to work out some resolution.

Migrant children are not permitted to be incarcerated with their parents, and are kept in separate facilities maintained by the Department of Health and Human Services. If they succeed, much of Trump's agenda would be stymied.

However, Mr Trump, who has been watching the coverage play out on television with increasing anger, has told confidants he believes the news media are deliberately highlighting the worst images - like the cages and screaming toddlers - to make him look bad. "They're in schools. They're in the police", she said.

Denham's district is about 40 percent Hispanic. Every day brings more horrifying stories and images of the children who are being separated from their families at the border as a result of the administration's "zero tolerance" policy. He is backing a compromise meant to keep families together.

Some conservatives in his district would prefer Denham take a tougher stance. "He ought to stick with what the president wants", said Jim DeMartini, chairman of the Stanislaus County Republican Party. John Rowe, Exelon Chairman Emeritus, a coalition leader and a GOP donor and fundraiser said in a statement, "Playing politics with the lives of immigrant children, both Dreamers and children at the border is immoral, cruel and does not fix our broken immigration system". She called the policy immoral. A CNN-SSRS poll revealed that even among those who approve of the job Trump is doing as President, a quarter disapprove of the policy.
