The first is a compromise bill between House conservatives and moderate Republicans, and a conservative bill by Virginia Republican Bob Goodlatte. But in a tweet today, Trump said -- "What is the purpose of the House doing good immigration bills" when they will probably not pass in the Senate.        The Defense Department is sending nearly two-dozen attorneys to the southern border to help prosecute illegal immigration cases. The Defense Department told MSNBC last night that 21 military lawyers will be appointed special assistant U.S. attorneys for up to six months. The Justice Department asked the Pentagon for help handling the skyrocketing number of cases in Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.        NASA is unveiling a new plan to protect Earth from asteroids.
