Trump Says He Won't Sign Compromise Immigration Bill

House Republicans plan to vote next week on a pair of immigration bills, including one that would end the Trump administration's practice of separating children from their parents at the Southwest border.

House Immigration Bill seeks to end family separation at border.

President Donald Trump said he won't sign a compromise immigration bill that, among other provisions, would end his administration's policy of separating immigrant children from parents when they illegally cross the USA border, blowing up a deal among House Republicans reached after weeks of negotiations. There is no special carve out for green cards or a pathway to citizenship.

But numerous young immigrants, known as Dreamers, would face an uncertain road to permanent residency - a major sticking point for Democrats who want to guarantee them a path to becoming Americans.

House Republicans were eyeing floor votes on both, starting with the more enforcement-heavy measure that has been pushed by House Judiciary Chairman Robert Goodlatte, R-Va., possibly as soon as late next week with votes on the compromise version to come later. House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis., told his members earlier this week that he had briefed Trump on the legislative strategy, and that the president was on board.

To beef up the border, the proposal provides the $25 billion the White House wants for security, including technology, roadways and money for the border wall.

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

The remark showed - again - how Trump often decides to decide on policy and other matters seemingly off-the-cuff, leaving his aides scrambling to react and lacking information about why the boss made a specific call.

Children who arrive with their parents are being sent to temporary government shelters while their parents go through a legal process.

GOP leaders have said they may take up the family detentions issue separately, if needed, as the crisis of children being separated from their parents continues.

Trump said on Fox News' "Fox and Friends" that he is not planning to sign the negotiated measure.

The draft text includes one of Trump's top priorities: cutting future legal immigration.

"We are not sending children to jail with their parents", he said. Trump's spokeswoman Sarah Sanders too argued that "it is very Biblical to enforce the law", as both the immigration issue and the arguments between the media and the administration over it became increasingly fractious.

GOP Representative Joe Barton of Texas, a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, said he is "predisposed " to vote for the compromise bill.

"No, I haven't heard [from them]", the president said nonchalantly. There was a discharge petition marinating on the Hill, which if successful, would have triggered a series of immigration votes that did not require going through the GOP leadership.

Last September, Trump announced that he was ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program created by President Barack Obama in June 2012.

Trump also weighed in by tweet, writing that any bill "MUST HAVE" provisions financing his proposed wall with Mexico and curbing the existing legal immigration system.
