President Donald Trump defended his tough stance on immigrants crossing the US border with Mexico on Saturday, praising his administration for a job well done and saying his approach will make the United States stronger.

On Friday, however, Trump completely reversed course.

"The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of Republican control", Will wrote.

President Trump discusses immigration bill with members of Congress at the White House on June 20, 2018.

"I did talk to the White House yesterday.

They say the President is still 100 per cent behind us", McCaul said on Fox News Sunday.

While both bills were originated by Republicans, one is generally considered the more "conservative" bill, authored by retiring Rep.

While defeating Trump may galvanize the Democratic faithful, the party is still fumbling for a wider unifying message, according to Tobe Berkovitz, a Boston University professor and former political media consultant.

Last year, Will called Trump "the nation's worst president" after Trump endorsed accused child molester Roy Moore for the then-open Senate seat in Alabama.

Republican leaders said a vote on the bill would occur next week regardless of Trump's wishes.

While predicting the public's attention will drift elsewhere before this November's midterm elections, where Republicans will fight to maintain control of the House, King voiced support for the administration's "zero tolerance" policy of criminally prosecuting immigrants, as long as the policy is carried out in an orderly fashion.

The moderates agreed to hold off on a discharge petition that would have forced four immigration votes - two on bills supported more by Democrats and than Republicans - to negotiate a compromise with their GOP colleagues.

The House Republican immigration overhaul is dangling precariously. "Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solves this decades old problem".

In abandoning the compromise bill and delaying a vote until after the November elections, Trump risks losing $23 billion in funding for border security included in the proposal, some of which would go toward building the wall along the USA border with Mexico.

"We will cross that bridge if we get to it", he said. "What is the objective of the House doing good immigration bills" when Senate Democrats are unlikely to pass the Republican bills, he wrote.

Some House Republicans placed blame on Trump for sinking either bills' momentum by saying they will be voted down in the Senate anyway.

"You're going to get an opinion today that may be a little different than what he thinks tomorrow", Bacon said.

Sen. John Cornyn (Tex.), the second-ranking Republican senator, said that he hoped the Senate would come up with a legislative solution, even though Trump moved to act unilaterally.

House Republican leaders suddenly delayed a vote Thursday on a compromise measure that has the support of key moderate Republican after concluding they lacked enough support to gain passage despite the growing controversy over separating children from their families at the U.S. -Mexico border. Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) relayed that message to House Republicans, which factored into their decision to continue negotiations on legislation into next week. "We're going to see the same thing this summer if we don't change it".

But it also provides legal status to an estimated 800,000 immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.

Trump, in his remarks, also suggested those illegally in the United States commit more crimes on a statistical basis than citizens or resident aliens.
