Debate on changes expected in the coming week in Washington

Third disrict Congressman Erik Paulsen is calling for changes to the national immigration policies that have led to children being separated from their families by border authorities.

The Republican released a statement Friday on Twitter:

Republicans are going to need all the support they can get to pass an immigration bill.

President Trump plans to meet with House Republicans to discuss immigration proposals. A House GOP official tells The Associated Press that the meeting is expected Tuesday afternoon.

Conservatives are worried about a more moderate bill, while the more conservative approach could upset suburban voters, independents and women.
