Duke alum Stephen Miller 'instrumental' in Trump's policy to separate migrant families

But the president has also suggested using family separation as a negotiating tool, refusing to reverse the policy unless Democrats agree to his other immigration reform priorities, like funding his "big, attractive wall" at the southern border.

In another tweet on Tuesday, Trump accused Democrats of letting illegal immigrants, including gang members, "pour into and infest" the U.S. to court their votes.

The President early indicated he does not want to support either of two bills created to move towards a solution to the family separation issue. "I hate it. I hate to see separation of parents and children". She says, "We want to fix the whole thing, we don't want to tinker with just part of it".

But if it comes to that, Hurd said he was "sure" that a piece of standalone legislation on the issue "would get north of 300 votes".

"Who are these people?" asked Trump.

Rep. Mark Meadows, head of the ultra-conservative Freedom Caucus, said he's still weighing his own vote, but the bill is a no-go for some conservatives.

"I think this is a very good chance that something, in fact, may be done", he told the 6-year-old, noting it would likely be a "quite historic" week on "border security". He also said there are some on the liberal side of the party who wanted a more generous legalization for Dreamers. To quote Trump himself, "We could have an immigration bill".

"Democrats are the problem".

The bill would grant full legal status and a path to citizenship to people who qualify for the Obama-era DACA program.

Members of Massachusetts' congressional delegation urged support Tuesday for legislation to stop the Trump administration's controversial "zero tolerance" policy, which has reportedly resulted in about 2,000 undocumented immigrant children being separated from their parents at the United States' southern border.

The compromise bill shifts away from the nation's longtime preference for family immigration to a new system that prioritizes entry based on merits and skills.

But many insiders believe his policy of separating young children from their parents could be the nail in the coffin for the bullet-proof commander-in-chief.

The bill would add more federal immigration judges, authorise new temporary shelters to house migrant families, speed the processing of asylum cases and require that families that cross the border illegally to be kept together, if there is no criminal conduct or threats to the welfare of children.

"It was great", he said.

"All of the members of the Republican conference support a plan that keeps families together", Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican senator from Kentucky, said Tuesday, endorsing a plan to keep parents and children together while their cases are going through the court system.

As the president walked through one of the Capitol's corridors a heckler shouted at him "Mister President, F- you!" "That's on nobody else but Congress", he said.

And the administration cites the 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act, which makes a first illegal entry into the US a misdemeanor.

He labeled the bill the "Ryan amnesty" and said it also repeats the same mistakes of the failed 2013 "Gang of 8" immigration bill.

Extremist Republicans, like AL Rep. Mo "I'll do anything short of shooting them" Brooks, love the tough, cruel talk of zero tolerance.

The ICE Council endorsed Mr. Trump on the campaign trail in 2016. "They're in schools. They're in the police", she said. But when people come up, they have to know they can't get in. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have defended the administration's policies saying they are merely enforcing the law.

Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), who has rarely broken with the White House, put out a statement Tuesday.
