Trump rips media for not covering 'permanent separations' by undocumented immigrants

The first lady's visit to Upbring New Hope Children's Centre followed President Trump's signing of an executive order halting the practice of separating families.

A pile of kids shoes left by mayors from US cities lay at the front gate outside of the children's tent encampment built to deal with the Trump administrations "zero tolerance" policy in Tornillo, Texas.

Joe Wilson, of SC, announced he would support the legislation after meeting Mr Trump, who he said was persuasive.

The event comes as the Trump administration has faced intense outrage and wall-to-wall media coverage for its "zero tolerance" immigration policy, which has led thousands of immigrant children to be separated from their parents at the border while the adults face prosecution.

This week, congressional Republicans planned to vote on a pair of immigration bills that can't pass the House - for the sake of preventing a vote on a bill that actually could. The battle over immigration has been intensified by heartbreaking images of migrant children separated from families and complicated by opaque statements by Trump.

They encourage people, frankly, to walk through Mexico and go into the United States because they're drug traffickers, they're human traffickers, they're coyotes.

House GOP leaders have made it clear they do not expect the immigration bill to pass, but have little choice but to press forward and keep a promise made to moderate Republicans.

The final order in 1997 required that children only be released to their parents or legal guardian and that they be placed in the least restrictive conditions. "It may be a compromise with the devil, but it's not a compromise with the Democrats, in terms of what they have in their bill".

"Elect more Republicans in November and we will pass the finest, fairest and most comprehensive Immigration Bills anywhere in the world", he added in another tweet. It takes 60 votes to end filibusters.

Federal agencies were working to set up a centralised reunification process for the remaining separated children and their families at a detention centre in Texas, the anonymous official said. Just Tuesday, he met privately with GOP lawmakers and told them he supported the immigration legislation and would have their backs in November.

In the House, moderate Republicans forced the immigration debate to the fore by threatening to use a rare procedure to demand a vote.

The compromise bill would allow immigrants who entered the USA illegally as children to apply for a six-year, indefinitely renewable legal status, and it would appropriate $25 billion for border-security funding.

Passage of the bill was always a long shot but failure may now come at a steeper price as Republicans - and Mr Trump - have raised expectations that, as the party in control of Congress and the White House, they can fix the nation's long-standing immigration problems. A federal court challenge has kept the DACA program running for now.
