House won't take on immigration without Trump's support, after Trump expresses doubts

The Democrats forced that law upon our nation.

"We don't want kids to be separated from their parents". In an interview on "Fox & Friends" Friday morning, President Donald Trump announced that he will not sign a moderate immigration bill.

"Everything we've heard has been very negative", House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said when asked whether Democrats might support it.

Democrats are opposed to both bills, and neither measure is expected to pass.

A leading House Republican says the chamber won't tackle immigration legislation unless President Trump supports it. While the conservative measure is seen as virtually certain to lose, party leaders have nurtured hopes that the compromise bill could pass.

While the GOP proposal was described by the Washington Post as a "solution", the plan would continue the mass and unjust detention of asylum-seeking families while keeping parents and children together in prison facilities-a far-cry from the humane alternatives proposed by rights groups and progressive lawmakers.

Trump's opposition may come as surprise to House Republican leadership, who have said they have the president's support. yan, who earlier this weeksaid he was working "hand in glove" with the administration, has said he will allow votes next week on two immigration measures: the compromise plan and a hardline bill backed by a bloc of conservatives.

In an exchange with White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during a raucous press briefing on Thursday, CBS News reporter Paula Reid-who covers legal affairs and the Trump Justice Department-called out White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders' erroneous claim that the Trump administration is merely following the law when it rips young children from their mothers' arms. "And we believe, because of the court ruling, this will require a legislative change".

Up to 1.8 million young Dreamers, mostly Hispanics who entered the country illegally years ago as children, could qualify for protection under the more moderate of the two Republican bills. "We need a wall", he said.

While both bills include the White House's request for $25 billion in additional border security provisions, Trump added a sticking point that "if we don't have the wall there's no bill".
