Parted at United States border by Trump policy, migrants seek their children

Dems are doing nothing but Obstructing.

In Friday morning tweets, Trump says Democrats have "no intention" of supplying the votes necessary to pass legislation on the issue and says "We can pass great legislation after the Red Wave!" "What's going to the more than two thousand children that have been separated already?"

Following that vote, House Republican leaders abruptly postponed voting on a compromise immigration measure amid ongoing infighting between conservative and moderates.

The president's tweet appears a signal he wants to turn the midterms into a referendum on immigration - and likely other issues, like trade and the health of the US economy.

With President Trump suddenly more antagonist than ally, House Republicans confronted the grim reality Friday that they may have no way out of an immigration mess of the president's own making. He said if Republicans can't get it done, "you end up looking like the gang that can't shoot straight". If Democrats take control of the House, they are unlikely to approve that wall funding. His order seemed to stem some of the urgency for Congress to act.

Trump's tweet came one day after the House failed to pass a conservative immigration bill introduced by Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte (R., Va.).

Over and over, Trump has proven himself a saboteur, willing to walk away from promises and blow up a deal, undermining the GOP agenda in Congress.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., had no immediate comment Friday about the president's change of course. The Department of Homeland Security, and Sessions, later said the policy was not intended for deterrence.

In the Texas border city of McAllen, federal prosecutors unexpectedly did not pursue charges against 17 immigrants Thursday. Mr Trump also said he "will speak to Mexico" after accusing it of allowing illegal immigrants to cross into the US. "It won't be easy".

Egypt forward Mohamed Salah ‘ready to play against Russia’
The win gave the group favourites a serious boost after Russia's shock 5-0 win against Saudi Arabia in the opening match. With its traditional defensive tactics preferred by Cuper, Egypt badly needs Salah and his goals to succeed.

The burgeoning US-China trade war has entered a new phase
Until now, China has mirrored Trump's actions, matching Friday's tariff hike with identical charges on the same amount of imports. Stock markets have fallen around the world in the wake of President Trump's latest tariffs threat to China.

Columbia take on Japan,as Egypt lock horns with Russian Federation
Japan became the first-ever team from Asia to defeat a Southern American squad in a World Cup game, after three draws and 14 defeats.

The U.S. Navy is drafting plans to house up to 25,000 immigrants on its bases and other facilities, at an estimated cost to taxpayers of about $233 million over six months, a U.S. official said on Friday.

Lawmakers said two new provisions would be added to the bill in hopes of winning votes. They were trying to persuade colleagues to seize the moment and tackle immigration problems by approving the bill, which includes $25 billion for Trump's border wall and a path to citizenship for young immigrants who have lived in the USA illegally since childhood. The bill was negotiated among moderates, conservatives and leadership, but has caused heartburn among all flanks of the conference.

Representative Carlos Curbelo, one of the lawmakers negotiating a Republican compromise immigration bill in the House, said the effort was continuing. It is expected to fail.

Durbin and Diaz also called on Congress to remedy the situation by passing comprehensive immigration reform that prioritizes keeping families together and makes it easier for immigrants seeking asylum at the southern border.

The bill would also require the government to separate fewer migrant children from parents when they are detained and finance Trump's proposed wall with Mexico. These were families that had been "permanently separated".

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.

As part of the the administration's "zero-tolerance" policy, which seeks to criminally charge and jail undocumented border crossers, children can not legally be held with their parents. The senior Trump administration official who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity said numerous 500 children already reunited were back with their families within days of being separated.

The House Republican immigration overhaul is dangling precariously. Democrats there have enough votes to use procedural delays to kill it.

Trump's decision to stop separating families, announced Wednesday after a fierce worldwide outcry, has led to confusion and uncertainty along the border. A federal court challenge has kept the DACA program running for now.
