Welch opposes Republican-backed immigration proposals in House

Ready fire aim- critics see pattern to Trump's approach

Ready fire aim- critics see pattern to Trump's approach

- Seventeen states, including Washington, New York and California, sued President Donald Trump's administration Tuesday in an effort to force officials to reunite migrant families who have been separated at the U.S. -Mexico border. According to Bloomberg, the attempt to come up with legislation that would appeal to moderate and conservative Republicans failed, 121 to 301.

That's what the Congressman said last week, before Republicans were unable to pass two immigration bills in the GOP-controlled U.S. House of Representatives.

Democrats and centrist Republicans from swing districts say the party could suffer because Mr Trump's anti-immigrant harangues could be alienating pivotal moderate voters.

With television and social media awash with images of crying young children torn from migrant families, Republicans want to pass a narrower measure addressing those separations should the broader bill fail. Properly calibrated, that would at least allow the Trump administration to get back to zero-tolerance enforcement for those who cross the border illegally rather than present their asylum requests properly at ports of entry.

In a Twitter post written in capital letters throughout, Trump said House Republicans should pass the bill, even though he said Democrats would stop it from passing in the Senate, where Republicans have a slimmer majority.

The Republican-led House has struggled to find a successful immigration approach.

The proposed legislation would have created a guest worker program for the agriculture sector and would have required employers to use E-Verify to confirm the immigration status of employees.

Even though USA production is increasing, the ability to increase exports is being hindered by the lack of pipeline capacity. Brent could fluctuate between $65-75 per barrel by the end of 2018 if political tensions do not increase in the Middle East.

But lawmakers will likely find it hard to flip votes in response to Trump's last-minute tweet in support of the bill, especially as many representatives have already announced how they will vote to their constituents.

But GOP aides said Republicans had yet to agree on bill language.

Forced to halt the practice last week in the face of global outrage, Trump suffered a new setback Tuesday as a California judge ordered the children still separated - who number more than 2,000 - to be reunited with their families within 30 days. Those are expected to culminate in a nationwide series of rallies, protests and vigils on Saturday that will take place on streets, community centers and outside Immigration and Customs Enforcement facilities. "My constituents have made it very clear to me that they do not want amnesty for illegal immigrants, and my vote today against the immigration bill reflected my commitment to them that I will never support amnesty", Abraham said.

If the justices nullify DACA before the election, Democrats and GOP moderates like Denham, Valadao and Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R- Fla., would likely renew their clamor to offer Dreamers a chance for citizenship. McCarthy, who is hoping to succeed Speaker Paul Ryan as speaker next year, and Trump have forged a close relationship.

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to march in dozens of USA cities on Saturday to protest family separations carried out by the Trump administration, according to organizers.

Bipartisan Senate talks are underway, but no compromise has emerged in either chamber. "But a lot of our members want to be able to express themselves by voting for the policies that they like, so that they can express their votes on the floor".
