Trump wants 'no judges or court cases' before deporting illegal immigrants

The Texas Republican said his bill emphasizes the "four pillars" of border security, ending chain migrations, discontinuing the visa lottery and taking a merit-based approach to the DACA recipients who were brought here illegally as children. "The Democrats don't want border security, the Democrats are okay with crime - but we're not okay with it".

The whiplash has some House Republicans seriously doubting that leaders will be able to get the bill over the finish line, which was already going to be an uphill climb before Trump's tweet.

"Their ability to actually intelligently and logically deal with the immigration issue is being affected by the fact that every member of Congress is afraid of being primaried by a very conservative Republican candidate", Yarmuth said. The families in question were first stopped by Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), with children taken into custody by HHS and adults detained through Immigration and Customs Enforcement (Ice).

Protests and rallies focused around the separation of families at the U.S. -Mexico border are scheduled this weekend, while more than two dozen congressional Democrats plan to visit detention facilities in Texas.

Donald Trump has sharpened his call to deport people who enter the USA illegally, saying they should immediately be sent back to where they came from without any judicial process.

On Thursday the Pentagon said it would support a request by the Department of Health and Human Services to find temporary shelter on military installations for up to 20,000 unaccompanied children who are detained for illegally crossing the border.

Trump's comments come as House Republicans have been struggling to wrangle support for a comprehensive immigration bill.

In another tweet Friday, Trump backed off calling on Congress to act on immigration, telling Republicans not to be "wasting their time" trying to pass legislation before the November midterms.

As it stands, the Republican's more moderate compromise measure would allow a path to citizenship for undocumented migrants, known as "Dreamers", who came to the children, and would codify an end to the Trump administration's now halted practice of separating undocumented families who cross into the USA illegally.

Calling for a "strong" border, he says: "We can not allow our Country to be overrun by illegal immigrants as the Democrats tell their phony stories of sadness and grief, hoping it will help them in the elections".

Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a Republican who represents a majority Hispanic district in Florida and is not running for re-election, said Trump's tweets amounted to "schizoid policymaking". "You know, just as she told me, she's like, 'Well, you're a mother". He has falsely blamed Democrats for forcing them to enforce the policy. President Trump changed half-heartedly his new policy but he remains the President. Trump's crackdown hasn't deterred them, at least not yet. At criminal court hearings in McAllen, one lawyer identified parents separated from their children, and immigration attorney Jodi Goodwin said she followed up with them at a detention facility in Port Isabel, Texas, to collect information about their cases and their children.

Esty also called on the president to refrain from saying the children were "infesting" the U.S.

Some reunifications were taking place, though it was unclear whether they involved the 700 children taken from parents between October and April, or the 2,300 since the mandatory prosecution of illegal border-crossers, whose children were taken away as a result, began in early May.

"We're gathered today to hear directly from the American victims of illegal immigration".
