Donald Trump Just Told Republicans To Back Off Immigration Reform - For Now

At the White House event Friday, Trump and numerous family members who spoke criticised what they called one-sided media coverage that does not focus on their stories.

Mr. Trump could face renewed criticism if thousands of immigrant children are soon sent to be housed on military bases. Trump had publicly backed the bill earlier in the week.

The spectacle was clearly a response to critics of the Trump administrations "zero tolerance" border policy, which separated migrant children from their parents who crossed the border.

Some 2,300 children were taken from their parents since May under the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" policy.

But the young girl's father, along with foreign and USA officials, confirmed Thursday night that the child and mother were not separated after they were detained. "The word "permanently" being the word that you have to think about".

"I can not imagine it being any worse, but we promise to act with strength and resolve". "We will secure our borders..." "Because they were killed by illegal immigrants".

Laura Wilkerson, whose son was killed in 2010 by an undocumented immigrant, told audience members: "None of our kids had a minute to say goodbye". "We haven't tapped out on the number of adults that have been separated".

The president was making a clear attempt to underscore the stakes in his push to crack down on illegal immigration, while countering critical media coverage. Yet many studies have found that the reverse is actually true.

Native-born Americans are more likely to commit a crime than immigrants, and more likely to be incarcerated.

One study spanning four decades compared immigration rates with crime rates.

Houston Rep. Ana Hernandez became an unauthorized immigrant in the country as a child when her family overstayed their visas. It said Department of Health and Human Services personnel or contractors "will provide all care for the children", including supervision, meals, clothing, medical services, transportation and other daily needs. And yes, he housed unaccompanied children in tent cities. The fate of those children remains unclear.

Alcala said he also wants to know whether immigrant children are being mixed with troubled youth. "You don't know what is going on", Trump said in remarks.

President Donald Trump on Friday began the end of a week during which his administration was hammered over the immigration controversy at the southern border by lashing out at Democrats for telling "phony" stories about detained immigrants. These were the stories the media ignores, he said. About 9,000 such family units have been caught in each of the last three months, according to U.S. border authorities.

Trump backed up his complaint with the unsupported claim that undocumented immigrants are more risky than the general population and shared statistics on crimes committed by undocumented immigrants without any context.

"You hear the other side, you never hear this side", said Trump at the White House, standing with a dozen of what he called "angel families" who lost loved ones at the hands of people in the country illegally.

But on Friday morning, he appeared to give up hope that the Republican-controlled Congress could succeed in passing an immigration bill this year, urging lawmakers in a Twitter post to stop "wasting their time". He's made economic arguments against immigration in the past, about stolen jobs and strained social services, but now he is focused on fear.

House Republicans have pushed off a vote on a key bill until next week, but Trump on Friday threw another wrench into the process by suggesting they should "stop wasting their time" until after the midterms. But the bill was delayed to Friday before being pushed back to next week.
