Immigration bill's demise shows holes in Trump's uneven lobbying strategy

Detained Children

In the US House of representatives us Congress did not support a compromise bill on migrants represented the Republican party and received the support of President Donald trump.

The vote was 301-121, with almost half of Republicans opposing the measure.

"I think we are proving to ourselves that Republicans can not pass an immigration bill", one Republican House member told CNN about the week.

More than a dozen states sued the Trump administration on Tuesday over its separation of migrant children and parents at the US-Mexico border, saying President Donald Trump's order last week ending the breakups was illusory. But questioned by Democratic senators, Azar refused to say how long the children would remain in Health and Human Services shelters.

After weeks of bickering in the Republican caucus, the issue of how to address immigration came down to two votes in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The compromise bill stemmed from negotiations over the last month between moderate and conservative Republicans that also led to a vote on a more conservative immigration bill last week sponsored by House Judiciary Committee Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., that failed in a 193-231 vote.

Trump Friday told his fellow Republicans in Congress to "stop wasting their time" on immigration legislation until after the November elections. Every Democrat and 41 Republicans voted against it. But they abandoned the plan, which would have made the vote even more uncomfortable for moderates opposing the database.

The failure was inevitable as Republican leadership conducted virtually no real arm-twisting of members on the fence, a high-ranking GOP aide told Business Insider.

Forced to halt the practice last week in the face of worldwide outrage, Trump suffered a new setback Tuesday as a California judge ordered the children still separated - who number more than 2,000 - to be reunited with their families within 30 days.

The bill would have provided more than $7 billion to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to build new containment centers to ensure undocumented families are not separated while they await a hearing before an immigration judge.

If the justices nullify DACA before the election, Democrats and GOP moderates like Denham, Valadao and Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R- Fla., would likely renew their clamor to offer Dreamers a chance for citizenship.

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday he would like to see the Senate unanimously passed legislation to prevent family separations.

Two Republican crafted immigration bills proposed to scrap the visa lottery but both crashed and burned, one last week, the other on Wednesday. Lawmakers view that as a temporary solution and want to vote on the subject to showcase that they're taking action.

Although Trump issued an executive order on June 20 to end the family separations, the American Civil Liberties Union, which brought the San Diego case, said the order contained "loopholes" and did little to fix the problem.

Trump suffered a fresh setback on Tuesday night when a United States district judge in San Diego, Dana Sabraw, ordered that separated families be reunited within 30 days - and two weeks in cases involving children under five. McCarthy, who is hoping to succeed Speaker Paul Ryan as speaker next year, and Trump have forged a close relationship.
