Trump addresses illegal immigration, crime

MoreCloseclosemore

Friday afternoon, Trump will meet at the White House with "angel families", or those who have had relatives killed by illegal immigrants - an issue the president has long felt strongly about.

And in the wake of Donald Trump's signing of an executive order to halt families being torn apart, the Department of Homeland Security has ceased referring members of families to the Department of Justice to be prosecuted.

The reversal left a host of unanswered questions, including where the government will house newly detained migrants in an already overcrowded system, and precisely how parents and children will be kept together.

The policy has resulted in more than 2,300 children being separated from their parents.

Video footage of children sitting in cages and an audiotape of wailing children sparked worldwide anger.

Additionally, Trump signed an executive order earlier this week that overturned his administration's policy created to seperate undocumented famalies at the border. But it is unclear how the remaining families affected will be reunited. Some said they didn't even know where their children were. Trump asserted Thursday that Congress could provide the "only real solution" to the crisis.

Trump said the United States wants people to come in, but in the proper way. "After today's important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn't going to choose to focus on her wardrobe".

"Republicans should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November", he tweeted.

Even if the House Republicans approve a bill, it faces nearly certain defeat in the upper chamber, where the Republicans also hold a majority but where Democrats hold enough seats to prevent the GOP from reaching the 60 votes needed for passage.

"This is a human rights mess".


Trump could face renewed criticism if thousands of immigrant children are soon sent to be housed on military bases. He did not explain why he was not using more recent statistics.

After someone legally migrates to the US from another country, the naturalization process varies.

"We have housed refugees".

But on Friday, Trump appeared to draw a connection between the families he brought on stage, and those his administration forcibly separated, which he implied were temporary.

Amid the chaos over the zero-tolerance policy, many immigrants continue to seek asylum at the border, and they are typically allowed to stay with their children.

"Under current law and legal rulings, it is not possible for the US government to detain families together during the pendency of their immigration proceedings".

The dramatic audio, first reported by ProPublica and later provided to The Associated Press, roiled the national debate over the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" approach to border crossings.

The bill was defeated in a 231-193 vote, with 41 Republicans joining the opposition.

Meanwhile, the House of Representatives on Thursday rejected a conservative immigration proposal and delayed until next week a vote on a potential compromise in yet another setback for Republican leadership.

Both bills have received backing from Trump but are opposed by Democrats and immigration advocacy groups.
