President Trump would sign either immigration bill up for a vote next week in the House, according to a White House statement, despite Trump telling reporters Friday morning that he wouldn't sign the new GOP immigration bill unveiled this week.

Why it matters: The president's support is crucial for the bill's chances when it's taken up by the House next week. Conservative and moderate Republicans, as well as House leadership, have spent weeks haggling over the details. The more conservative immigration bill by Rep. Bob Goodlatte will also get a vote next week, but it's not expected to pass.

White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah said in the statement that “in this morning's interview, [Trump] was commenting on the discharge petition in the House, and not the new package.

President Trump tweeted today that any immigration bill "MUST HAVE full funding for the Wall, end Catch & Release, Visa Lottery and Chain, and go to Merit Based Immigration“ — everything the new bill addresses.

U.S. government bonds could breakout further after yields on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note ticked up to their highest since early June last week.

But, but, but: Strategists say this move is about an improving outlook for economic growth rather than just inflation.

The dangerous instability of school re-openings

Schools across the country have flip-flopped between in-person and remote learning — and that instability is taking a toll on students' ability to learn and their mental health.

The big picture: While companies were able to set long timelines for their return, schools — under immense political and social strain — had to rush to figure out how to reopen. The cobbled-together approach has hurt students, parents and teachers alike.
