During an impromptu appearance on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" Friday morning, Trump shot down the Republican plan that took weeks of work and almost overhauled the House floor schedule with a discharge petition.
"No, I haven't heard [from them]", the president said nonchalantly. "So I'm very disappointed".
Despite their policy clashes, both Republican factions have been eager for the votes to be held as a way to show constituents where they stand, and party leaders want to move on from an issue that divides the GOP and complicates their effort to retain House control in November's elections.
Earlier this month, activists called for worldwide intervention in the USA push to separate migrant children from their parents, a practice the Human Rights Watch called "cruel".
CNN reported in May that the Trump administration had chose to refer anyone found crossing into the U.S. illegally for federal prosecution, meaning that adults coming across the border with children will be separated from them as the parents await their criminal proceedings.

A White House official on Tuesday afternoon gave no indication to a Roll Call reporter that Trump and his team were close to a decision on which bill the president might endorse - or if he would even get involved. Bob Goodlatte, R-Virginia, that would provide a pathway to legal status for Dreamers while limiting legal immigration levels.
But a senior White House official later said Trump, confused, had believed his Fox interviewer was asking about a now abandoned effort Republican moderates that would have forced House of Representatives votes on a handful of bills and likely led to the passage of liberal-leaning versions that Republican party leaders oppose. Brian Karem: "But you're sitting there telling us it's a law, and they have-that these people have nothing". While the conservative measure is seen as virtually certain to lose, party leaders have nurtured hopes that the compromise bill could pass. Ryan and a group of House Republicans are working on a bill that would resolve both the treatment of migrant children and the Dreamers. "Fox and Friends" was broadcasting live from the White House lawn when he tweeted that he was thinking about making an "unannounced trip to see them". It also called for a pathway to citizenship - something conservatives have long rejected - and ended family-based visa programs for certain relatives of USA citizens, according to a discussion draft of legislation circulated among lawmakers Thursday.
House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., told reporters Friday that he believes Trump has an accurate understanding of what is in the draft compromise and is simply pushing for the most conservative bill - not ending the talks.
"That's not what I said". Both would reduce legal migration, in part by denying visas for some relatives of U.S. residents and citizens who are living overseas, sometimes referred to as "chain migration".
An expanded number of children who arrived legally with parents who have obtained work visas would also be covered.
Apparently not. Trump's sticking to his demands for full funding of the border wall and the end to the visa-lottery system, which he specifically disparages in this interview with Fox News, in exchange for regularizing DACA.
"Individual children are separated from their parents only when those parents cross the border illegally and are arrested". Because of a 1997 court settlement that bars children from being imprisoned with parents, Justice Department officials now say they have no choice but to isolate the children.
