Trump tells GOP to leave immigration until after midtermsTwo days after he urged Congress in an executive order to revamp the nation's immigration laws, President Donald Trump said Friday that Republicans should "stop wasting their time" on border legislation until after the November midterms.

Trump weighed in on Twitter as Republicans who control both chambers of Congress have been wrestling with divisions over the immigration issue.

Faced with pressure from Republican moderates to allow a vote on legislation to help young undocumented immigrants known as "Dreamers,"  House Speaker Paul Ryan has offered a bill aimed at bridging the differences between moderate and conservative lawmakers.

The legislation would toughen enforcement laws and provide funding for Trump's proposed wall on the southern border. It would also aim to  help young immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children and halt separations of families detained at the border together.
