CALLING THEIR BLUFF: Trump Says NFL Athletes Not Protesting a ‘REAL ISSUE’

President Donald Trump speaks to reporters on the North Lawn of the White House Friday

President Donald Trump said Friday he would not sign a "moderate" immigration bill being finalized by House Republicans, igniting confusion on Capitol Hill over a GOP bill that Trump's allies believed had his support.

The Congressional Leadership Fund's ad - called "Negative Nancy" - features the California Democrat predicting President Trump's historic tax overhaul would be "Armageddon".

The compromise bill would also provide legal status for recipients and eligible recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, eliminate multiple visa programs including the Diversity Lottery, and allow U.S. law enforcement to more easily deport unauthorized immigrants.

"No, I haven't heard [from them]", the president said nonchalantly.

If that happens, DOJ attorneys wrote that they would then ask the U.S. Supreme Court to temporarily nullify all federal injunctions regarding DACA, allowing the Trump administration to move forward with its original plan to end the program without interference from the ongoing litigation.

Apparently not. Trump's sticking to his demands for full funding of the border wall and the end to the visa-lottery system, which he specifically disparages in this interview with Fox News, in exchange for regularizing DACA.

"Go for it! WIN!"

One Republican, Rep. Tom MacArthur of New Jersey, said he likes the way the compromise bill handles young people because "they're not getting in line in front of anyone else".

"The administration shows no sign of backing down from its policy of separating children from their parents despite powerful new condemnation from faith leaders", Tom Jawetz, vice president for immigration policy at progressive group Center for American Progress, told AFP.

The House is set to vote on two immigration bills next week - a conservative proposal crafted by Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and a compromise proposal GOP leaders negotiated with moderates and conservatives.

Trump's opposition may also come as a shock to House GOP leaders, who said they had the president's support in writing the legislation.

President Donald Trump was confused when he said he wouldn't support a "moderate" immigration bill that aligns with his administration's own stated goals.

A senior White House official said the tweet was created to signal his support.

Both the conservative and compromise bills would provide money for Trump's long-sought border wall with Mexico and other strict border security provisions.

He made the comment Friday after Mr. Trump told reporters that he won't sign a "moderate" bill. In one camp are the GOP moderates who want to a path to citizenship for the so-called Dreamers, undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S.as children. The compromise bill's fate is less clear, with some conservatives opposing it for not going far enough.

The result? It's likely back to square one for House Republicans, and White House aides say there have been "some discussions" with the conference about possible next steps.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said "it is very biblical to enforce the law".
