But Republicans - who control both chambers of Congress - have failed to unify around a measure that would end the controversial family separations while addressing key priorities supported by Trump, such as limits to legal immigration and funding for his proposed wall on the US-Mexico border. "Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solves this decades old problem. We can pass great legislation after the Red Wave!"
"No one has more to lose in November than the president does when it comes to the majority in the House, because if this majority flips over to be a Democrat, there will be a big push for impeachment", said Republican Congressman Bradley Byrne of Alabama, an opponent of the immigration measure.
U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock), has introduced, with a group of Republicans in coordination with House leadership, a compromise immigration bill to address family separation, a permanent solution for Dreamers, and border security.
Prior to these votes, which were not needed right now and created division within the GOP during a critical election year, 192 House Democrats signed a discharge petition. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), the chair of the House Judiciary Committee.
"We reached, I think, a good consensus, and suddenly we wake up to another tweet", said Rep. Dennis A. Ross (R-Fla.).
What is unclear, however, is whether Trump realizes the moderate Republicans he is alienating are among the most vulnerable in the mid-term elections. "We will secure our borders. the word will get out".

"We will cross that bridge if we get to it", he said.
"If that happens, the Republicans will have done the right thing in the House and [Senate Minority Leader Chuck] Schumer will have done the wrong thing in the Senate, and people will acknowledge that", Rove said.
"If they did, it would have no chance of passing the Senate, so it would be something that was totally done for, again, whoever still has a primary left in the Republican Party", he said.
For years, Republican infighting over these issues has blocked Congress from passing any major immigration legislation. The House was initially scheduled to vote on the bill Thursday night, but it was pushed to Friday and then next week after members asked for more time to read the bill. Trump is not the cause but merely the biggest symptom indicating where the most active Republican voters are on immigration.
The Washington Post reported on Thursday that the administration would stop prosecuting migrant parents who cross the border illegally with children until immigration authorities have the resources that would allow them to be held in custody, citing a senior US Customs and Border Protection official. "I think I had a lot to do with that poll. because I've exposed the media".
The president hit back against the storm of criticism over the forced separations by highlighting the plight of Americans whose loved ones were killed by people who entered the country illegally. Pollsters on both ends of the political spectrum say it is too early to predict clearly how events will play out in November, as Democrats and Republicans alike acknowledge that they do not fully understand the new dynamics at play.
