Asked Thursday what happens if both immigration votes fail, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said, "We'll cross that bridge if we get to it". No decision on this has been made yet.

One mother, Laura Wilkerson, told the audience about her 18-year-old son Josh, who she said was brutally tortured and beaten to death, then set on fire in 2010. More than 2,300 children were split from their parents since May, and stories of traumatized children and desperate parents have been highlighted by the national media for weeks.

Almost 500 migrant children of the more than 2,000 who were separated from their parents at the U.S. -Mexico border have been reunited since May, a senior Trump administration official told The Associated Press.

Video footage of children sitting in cages and an audiotape of wailing children sparked worldwide anger.

Religious leaders from across New Jersey demanded Friday that the Trump Administration reunite children who were separated from their parents at the Southern border.

While prosecutors said they were not dismissing any cases, some hearings on Thursday did not proceed as scheduled.

Management at The Villages said that they don't choose which children come through their doors.

President Donald Trump, after a tactical retreat this week on immigration policy, demonstrated Friday that there is no strategic shift to his overall tough approach to those attempting to illegally enter the country, and vowing to "end the immigration crisis, once and for all". From our visit, the children seem to be adjusting well, and are having their needs met.

The White House did not immediately respond to questions about which stories the president believed to be "phony" and why he believed that. "It's a jacket", said Stephanie Grisham, Melania Trump's spokeswoman.

The president said, however, the message was directed at news organizations, which he dubbed the "Fake News Media".

The situation underscored continued congressional dysfunction, particularly in overhauling the nation's immigration system, and the struggle to unite the conservative and more moderate wings of the Republican Party on the issue.

"Game over", said Representative Mark Sanford, a Republican critic of Trump who came under withering attack from the president before losing his primary race this month. "It is on the President to clean it up and fire the people responsible for making it", Coffman said.

Immigrants like Ever Castillo and Diva Funes were among those affected by the mixed signals from the U.S.

It would not be the first time for such an arrangement.

Two leading Democrats said Kansas is too far. We have housed people thrown out of their homes by earthquakes and hurricanes.

The uncertainty at the border resulted after Trump abruptly reversed policy in the face of an worldwide outcry over the separation of children from their parents. Morales said the blankets serve to represent "the children that have been separated and the children that will be separated by the "zero tolerance" policy". The majority of children separated from parents are in the care of HHS - and there's no real plan as for how to reunite them. "We will secure our borders ... the word will get out".

Ryan, in a news conference before the votes, said Democrats wanted "open borders".

Earlier this week, HHS requested that the Pentagon be prepared to house up to 20,000 unaccompanied migrant children at US military bases.

"We're here to serve all children in need", they said.
