House to Vote on Broad Immigration Bill Thursday, Ryan Says

He didn't immediately elaborate on the order.

Trump and other administration officials, including Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, defended the policy up to the last minute, insisting that they enacted it in part because of a 2015 court order that cited a 1997 settlement known as the Flores agreement that says children can not be held in long-term detention, even with their parents. He added that otherwise "the country is going to be over-run by millions of people".

"The Department of Homeland Security's going to have to work with the court and ensure that they are able to keep these families as an integrated unit in detention facilities pending their criminal prosecution of the parents and/or the deportation of the whole family for violation of our immigration laws", Azar said.

Cruz's bill would double the number of federal immigration judges, authorize new temporary shelters to house migrant families and limit the processing of asylum cases to no more than 14 days - a goal immigrant advocates say would be hard to meet.

"There are now 239 children right here as a result of the Trump administration's family separation policy", he said.

The issue has drowned the GOP's preferred campaign message about a booming economy on the week of the six-month anniversary of the Trump tax cuts and brought harrowing footage of wailing toddlers to American living rooms.

Trump's own wife was among those urging him to reverse course. Nielsen arrived at the White House on Wednesday before Trump held the press conference where he announced he'd be signing the order.

Indications of a potential shift in administration thinking came an hour after Speaker Paul Ryan said the House would vote Thursday on a compromise between conservative and Republican senators that would address the issue of family separations.

New Volvo S60 to be revealed today
Expect niceties like multi-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, and a Bowers & Wilkins audio system on the options sheet. What's also significant is the fact that the new S60 will be the first Volvo ever to be built in the United States.

The uproar prompted rare displays of defiance to Trump from some congressional Republicans.

Mr. Ryan didn't say which approach he might take if the compromise measure failed to clear the House or stalled in the Senate.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement Deputy Director Tom Homan said on May 7, "We've got intelligence that alien smuggling organizations are making children available to single adults so that they can come and claim to be a family unit and not be detained".

He would be taking "preemptive" action as the White House and lawmakers scramble to deal with fallout over the administration's "zero-tolerance" policy. You have to change the law so we can make sure that custody stays with DHS. "But in practicality it's unfair".

"Democrats are the problem", he tweeted early Tuesday, charging that his opponents "don't care about crime and want illegal immigrants, no matter how bad they may be, to pour into and infest our Country".

The bill would require the Department of Homeland Security to house families together while parents go through criminal proceedings for the misdemeanor of first-time illegal border crossing - a change from current practice requiring the Department of Justice to take criminal custody during criminal proceedings, thus leading to family separation.

Leaders across the globe are slamming the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy that has seen thousands of migrant families separated at the US-Mexico border.

Both Sessions and Nielsen were at the Capitol Wednesday to meet with House Republicans.

However, Democrats and some Republicans have said Trump could end the policy himself.
