Despite President Trump's last-minute, all-caps tweet to promote the GOP compromise immigration bill in the House — which would have allowed families to be kept in detention together long-term — the bill failed 301-121 on Wednesday afternoon.

What's next: House Republicans are expected to turn their focus to a more narrow bill that addresses migrant family separation and would overrule the Flores Settlement, which currently does not allow minors to be detained for more than 20 days.

One big thing: The bill received fewer votes than Goodlatte's hard-line immigration bill that failed last week despite moderates, conservative Freedom Caucus members and leadership collaborating on this one.

The backdrop: July 10th will mark 20 days since Trump signed his executive order ending family separation, meaning that the children who were initially detained with their families by DHS will legally have to go elsewhere if Congress — or Judge Dolly Gee — does not act.

Biden's doctrine: Erase Trump, re-embrace the world

Foreign policy will look drastically different if Joe Biden defeats President Trump in November, advisers tell Axios — starting with a Day One announcement that the U.S. is re-entering the Paris Climate Agreement and new global coordination of the coronavirus response.

The big picture: If Trump's presidency started the "America First" era of withdrawal from global alliances, Biden's team says his presidency would be the opposite: a re-engagement with the world and an effort to rebuild those alliances — fast.

Robert Mueller speaks out on Roger Stone commutation

Former special counsel Robert Mueller responded to claims from President Trump and his allies that Roger Stone was a "victim" in the Justice Department's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, writing in a Washington Post op-ed published Saturday: "He remains a convicted felon, and rightly so."

Why it matters: The rare public comments by Mueller come on the heels of President Trump's move to commute the sentence of his longtime associate, who was sentenced in February to 40 months in prison for crimes stemming from the Russia investigation. The controversial decision brought an abrupt end to the possibility of Stone spending time behind bars.
