Sirine Shebaya, a senior staff attorney with Muslim Advocates, said she and two other lawyers met about 70 detained Central American migrants at Port Isabel on Friday and Saturday. Ideas include adding e-verify for employers to check immigration status for workers and reforming agriculture visas from seasonal eligibility to yearlong in a nod to the dairy industry, according to one member briefed on the plan. And I say is that possible? The mothers themselves could not be contacted because access to detained immigrants is hard.

Trump has a few times invoked the name of Kate Steinle - a 32-year-old woman who died in 2015 after being shot by an immigrant previously deported - to push his immigration policies.

The fact sheet did not state how long it might take to reunite families.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy says it's "important" that his chamber shows it's addressing the issue, which is an important one to voters.

Trump suggested on Friday that some of the wrenching tales that have emerged from the borderwere fabricated by Democrats. The president discussed everything from mining and trade to the immigration controversy.

In a tweet sent Friday, President Donald Trump wrote in part: "Elect more Republicans in November and we will pass the finest, fairest and most comprehensive immigration bills anywhere in the world". "I think to have some final outcome on immigration in a holistic way you need to have Democrats participate in this process".

"What is the goal of the House doing good immigration bills when you need 9 votes by Democrats in the Senate, and the Dems are only looking to Obstruct", Trump said in a tweet on Thursday as he renewed his call for a change in Senate rules to allow legislation to move with a simple majority.

If House votes on immigration fail Thursday - which lawmakers said is a real possibility - vulnerable Republicans are ready to defy their party establishment and work with Democrats to revive the effort.

However, Trump's latest tweets could gut that effort.

Republican Rep. Mike Simpson of Idaho said lawmakers who are counting on Trump to provide a presidential nudge should reconsider.

They also follow on days of congressional wrangling as GOP leadership had been hoping Trump could help sell immigration legislation to wary members.

"You just fear that tweet in the morning", Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla said.

Opec move to boost oil production will ensure market stability

Undocumented immigrant families are released from detention at a bus depot in McAllen, Texas, US, June 22, 2018.

"It's very hard to reunite children with their parents because these government agencies were not prepared, and they're not designed, for family separation", said Efren Olivares, a lawyer with the Texas Civil Rights Project that represents 381 migrant parents.

Ryan acknowledged that the two votes were meant as a political exercise to allow Republicans to point to something they supported, regardless of whether it ever passed the House.

She argued it perpetuates child detention, undermines existing protections and restricts immigration for millions who have been waiting to legally enter the country. That would be a sharp increase from the 2,500 beds available for families in the last fiscal year.

"We are talking about a 70-30 issue here with families".

They want minors to remain protected by a decades-old settlement governing the detention of immigrant children caught on the border. It was the administration's policy of zero tolerance - announced in April - that led to blanket prosecutions, including of adults traveling with children.
