WestVirginiaRebel Posted June 20, 2018 Share Posted June 20, 2018 Fox News President Trump met with House Republicans Tuesday to discuss immigration legislation as lawmakers searched for a way to end the administration's policy of separating families who illegally cross the U.S.-Mexico border. After the meeting broke up, the White House announced that Trump had endorsed legislation negotiated between GOP leaders and moderate Republicans that promises to "solve the border crisis and family separation issue by allowing for family detention and removal." A person in the room told Fox News that Trump also endorsed an immigration bill authored by conservative Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., but that measure is not expected to pass the House. White House spokesman Raj Shah said that Trump told lawmakers he was "with you 100" percent, but one senior House Republican told Fox News that Trump's pitch for the so-called "compromise" bill was "underwhelming" and was unlikely to persuade members to get behind it. ________ Looking for a solution that works for everybody.
