    House GOP changes immigration bill to prevent DHS from separating families

    House GOP changes immigration bill to prevent DHS from separating families


    June 19, 2018

    House Republicans are changing their compromise immigration bill to prevent the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from separating migrant children from their families in response to a growing political storm.


    The new bill would require DHS to keep families together while parents are going through legal proceedings related to their detention for illegally crossing the border, according to a House GOP source familiar with the new bill, which is still being drafted.


    “This bill requires DHS to house families together while parents are going through criminal proceedings for the misdemeanor of first-time illegal border crossing,” the source said.


    “This is a change from current practice which requires [Department of Justice] DOJ criminal custody during criminal proceedings, and thus leads to family separation,” the source added.


    It’s unclear whether the new bill will be approved by the House, however, and it seems unlikely to get through the Senate where Republicans would need help from Democrats.


    Democrats are opposed to the underlying legislation, which would also make changes to legal programs to curb immigration. The bill also includes provisions on border security, money for a wall on the border and language that would allow “Dreamers” who came to the United States illegally as children to stay in the country.


    President Trump is slated to come to Capitol Hill to discuss immigration with House Republicans Tuesday evening. House GOP leadership hopes to hold floor votes on both the compromise bill and a harder-line measure backed by Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) before the end of the week.


    Both the Goodlatte bill and the compromise GOP bill addressed family separations, but critics say the solutions proposed in them would create a situation where entire families are detained, in some cases without the proper safeguards for detained minors.


    Trump has blamed family separations on Democrats, making the false claim that his “zero tolerance” policy on the border is necessitated by a law approved by Congress.


    Previous administrations have declined to separate families, choosing instead to keep families together as they go through processing.


    The changes to the legislation come following bipartisan backlash over the zero tolerance policy, which has left about 2,000 children separated from their guardians over the course of six weeks.


    The legislation also revives the 20-day cap on DHS administrative custody for minors — allowing families to remain together throughout the course of proceedings. Children of offenders and felons will, however, be placed in custody of the Department of Health and Human Services under the legislation.


    It would allocate $7 billion toward family residential centers. Current facilities have come under heavy scrutiny after photos emerges of children being kept in wire cages.


    “The legislation is still being finalized and the updated version is expected to be circulated later today and discussed at the conference meeting this evening,” according to the source.

    Change the FIRST crossing to a felony and swiftly deport them all.

    The SECOND crossing mandatory Federal Tent City on Federal Land for 30, 60, 90 days for adults over 18 and all minors under 18 WILL be handed over into the care and custody of their countries authorities to house and feed and reunite with their relatives on their soil.

    They are ALL lying snakes and push through these massive bills with thousands of pages to hide their loopholes and "deals" in them!


    Remember Pelosi..."we have to pass the healthcare bill to know what's in it" and they destroyed our healthcare system and WASTED billions of our money on it and it is still a financial disaster!

    The system is NOT broken...the laws are NOT enforced and passing more bills solves nothing!

    You pick this immigration mess apart one by one and line item terminate the loopholes! NOT make more freaking bills!

    Where is the CDC? What percentage of these people have diseases on the record? High percentages of diseases should be grounds for NO entry and NO asylum! Shut that border down until this mess is cleared up!

    NO WORK PERMITS FOR THESE ASYLUM LIARS...PROCESS AND DEPORT AND THEY WAIT THEIR TURN ON THEIR SOIL!

    Assigning the first attempt as a felony without prison time will not act as a deterrent. What the sense of changing a misdemeanor into a felony if you're going to continue to treat the felony crime as a misdemeanor where punishment is concerned? Deportation is not a punishment, and as history has shown, does not act as a viable deterrent. The proof of this is in all the reentries we get. Honestly, I think the "zero tolerance" policy is on the right track. Prosecute them all with the first offenders serving the 90 days you're talking about but throw the book at the reentries and give them 12-24 months.

    90 days in a tent city prison along the border would be fine for the first time offender, but the illegal reentry, which is an actual felon, should do his or her time behind prison walls.

    Unfortunately, seriously reducing illegal immigration is not going to be cost free. Immediate deportation without consequence has not worked, especially in the case the Mexican's because most of them just keep trying to enter until successful. Those from Central America who enter illegally are a little different because their are flown back to their countries and have to start the process to reenter illegally from much further away.

    Just my opinion, for what it's worth.

    MW...what do you do with all these children?

    100% of them need to be transported directly BACK into the care and custody of their President within 48 hours!

    Our citizens go to jail and their relatives and family members take them in.

    Same needs to happen to the children of illegal aliens...send them home to THEIR relatives...NOT release them on our soil to anyone...EVER!

    Their country can put them in foster homes!

    LOAD UP MILITARY TRANSPORT PLANES AND START FLYING THEM BACK TO THEIR PRESIDENT!

    This should include the billions of dollars to finance that mandate. That they will have a problem with, actually paying for what they mandate!
