>> On this vote, the ayes are 121, the nays are 301.>> The House of Representatives, on Wednesday, rejected a compromised immigration bill meant to address the crisis of families being separated at the US/Mexico border. The legislation also would have given long-term protections to Dreamer immigrants brought into the country illegally as children and provided funding for President Trump's proposed wall for the southern border.
>> The bill is not passed->> The failed bill comes after a U.S. district court judge blocked the Trump administration from separating migrant kids and parents, and gave the government 30 days to reunite some 2000 children with their parents and just two weeks for children under the age of 5.
They were taken under the Trump administration's new Zero Tolerance policy that began in early May and sought to prosecute all adults crossing the border without authorization. Parents released from a detention center earlier this week had yet to find their children.>> I never imagined that they would take away my son.
I though they were going to send us together to wherever they were going to send us.>> Facing an intense backlash, Trump signed an order ending the separations last week, but has demanded that Congress resolve the issue with legislation.>> Pass something or come back with something that would be a derivation.
But as of this moment, Democrats are not gonna vote for anything because they really are resisting or obstructing.>> The Republican control the House could still vote as early as this week on a narrower measure that is still being developed, which would focus specifically on the family's separations issue.
