Republicans prepare bill allowing migrant children to be detained more than 20 days
By Tara Palmeri

"Republican lawmakers are preparing to vote on a more narrow immigration bill that would allow immigrant children to stay in detention facilities with their parents for more than 20 days, senior White House and Hill officials tell ABC News."
"The House is scheduled to vote on a larger "compromise" immigration bill early next week that would include DACA, border security and visas. But the bill is not expected to get enough votes to pass in Congress. Sources tell ABC News that Hill leaders are expected to then vote on the more narrow bill."
"Senior White House aide Stephen Miller has been blamed by his colleagues for pushing the zero tolerance policy that created the crisis at the border, according to White House officials."

Republicans continue to figure out how they can keep immigrant children incarcerated for even longer periods by offering them to now stay with their parents. That is far from what is needed or expected from this administration. The larger bill to be voted upon next week appears doomed to failure due to Republicans not wanting to move an inch on DACA recipients yet they say they are for doing the right thing. They are not doing the right thing. If they were they would have already passed DACA with a full path to citizenship.

And the Trump White House is also responsible for the border crisis as has been brought out let's not forget!
