GOP Super PAC Targets Rep. Nancy Pelosi

President Donald Trump speaks to reporters on the North Lawn of the White House Friday

"Trump is literally holding children hostage to get his unpopular border wall", she writes.

Trump's public acknowledgment that he was willing to let the policy continue as he pursued his political goals came as the president once again blamed Democrats for a policy enacted and touted by his own administration. Only the compromise measure offers a chance at citizenship for young immigrants who arrived in the US illegally as children.

Ryan, R-Wis., said the House would vote next week on two competing immigration measures, but said he "won't guarantee passage".

But White House spokesman Raj Shah clarified Friday evening that the president had been commenting on the separate - and now abandoned - effort by moderate Republicans to push votes on other legislation.

But later, the White House walked back that rejection, saying the president was "confused" and would sign the bill.

These are just some of the stories of families who have been separated, a number of them as a result of Attorney General Jeff Sessions' May announcement that the Trump administration was enforcing a "zero tolerance" policy toward people entering the USA without authorization.

"I'm not in the room for negotiations, but I can tell you that working with them is. interesting", Aguilar said. Rep. Scott Perry, a Republican from Pennsylvania, said the President was right to voice opposition to the compromise bill and said he hopes Trump doesn't walk back his statement.

Democrats are expected to solidly oppose both Republican bills.

Now, with November's congressional elections nearing, Republicans are scrambling to minimize a potential backlash among Hispanic voters.

The White House official said Trump "misunderstood" the question on Fox about the moderate immigration bill and that the President thought he was referring to another moderate effort, a rare procedural move known as a discharge petition that would have forced a series of immigration votes on the House floor including on bills that didn't have the backing of GOP leaders.

Doocy then noted that the House is set to consider two immigration bills next week-a conservative measure from Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte (R., Va.) and a more moderate, compromise proposal that GOP leaders struck with centrist Republicans. "I think it's incumbent upon our elected officials to monitor this and I feel confident that once people see it and see how people are being held in virtual cages, that will stop this immoral practice".

"MS-13 gang members are truly, and you've heard me say it, animals." he said on Saturday.

The lack of clarity led GOP leaders to put their plans for the bill on hold. Theoretically, the House bill could end family separation if officials proactively keep families together while they await immigration court proceedings.

Last month, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the policy, promising "100 percent" of immigrants who enter the United States unlawfully will be prosecuted.

Hayden, a CNN contributor who served as Central Intelligence Agency director under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, posted a photo of the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp on Twitter along with the caption, "Other governments have separated mothers and children".

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar told lawmakers last week that children are only separated when adults attempt to enter the USA without following proper protocols.

But advocates inside the administration, most prominently Stephen Miller, Mr. Trump's senior policy adviser, never gave up on the idea.

Catholic Charities has helped represent children who've crossed the border in court for years.

Rep. Brian Higgins, New York Democrat, said he will not support Ms. Pelosi for another term.

A leading House Republican says the chamber won't tackle immigration legislation unless President Donald Trump supports it.
