Trump tells Republicans to stop 'wasting their time on immigration'

But in a Friday tweet the president said, "Republicans should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November".
Mr Trump, faced with a public outcry over his policy that separated children from their migrant parents at the U.S. border with Mexico, tried to refocus the immigration debate on Congress in a series of posts on Twitter.
But House Republicans are moving forward as planned with efforts to pass immigration legislation, said Represenative Steve Scalise of Louisiana, the majority whip. In a series of tweets, Trump said, "Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solve this decades-old problem".
President Donald Trump has vowed to secure United States' global borders and prevent people from illegally entering America, and said that he wants only those based on merit to come inside the country, amid a major immigration row.
McClatchy reported Thursday that the Obama administration also separated families who were detained at the border.
Similar to the executive order Trump signed Wednesday, it mandates that families be detained together while adults go through criminal proceedings. "You don't know what's going on", Trump said. The bill largely follows immigration principles issued by the White House in January, providing $25 billion for Trump's long-sought border wall, scaling back legal immigration and giving young undocumented immigrants a shot at citizenship. Republican leaders in Congress said they would press on anyway. So we need to elect more R's!

In a tweet Friday morning, President Donald Trump called the media coverage of traumatized immigrant children and parents "phony stories of sadness and grief", orchestrated by Democrats for political gain.
Representative Carlos Curbelo, one of the lawmakers negotiating a Republican compromise immigration bill in the House, said the effort was continuing.
The president made the abrupt decision as his administration was taking heat for a controversial "zero tolerance" immigration policy that resulted in families being separated at the United States' southern border.
Children who were transferred into government custody were flown to shelters and foster-care families across the country, while some parents were deported back to their home countries alone. From a separate detention centre, she said: "What's happening is unfair".
Trump said he told them on the campaign trail he would never let them down, and they've been working together since.
U.S. House Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (L) speaks as Speaker of the House Rep. Paul Ryan listens during a news conference on June 20, 2018, on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. And House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte says he will "absolutely" keep pushing the legislation because GOP lawmakers want to continue.
"This is Tom Selleck, except better looking", Trump said at one point during the ceremony, in reference to a murder victim who was pictured with a mustache. Every Republican involved in the House's immigration fight is really just trying to send an advantageous message to his or her constituents.
But even some House Republicans vented their frustration over the slapdash process that did not provide for amendments to a bill that was thrust upon members in the past 72 hours with a pep talk by President Donald Trump.
But the president showed no sign of softening in public remarks, even as Congress failed again to pass immigration reform.
A senior Trump administration official said that about 500 of the more than 2,300 children taken from their families at the border in recent weeks have been reunited since May. Several congressional aides, both Republican and Democrat, believe that such a modification is unlikely and that only legislation can ultimately address the issue.
But on Friday, Trump appeared to draw a connection between the families he brought on stage, and those his administration forcibly separated, which he implied were temporary.
