A federal prosecutor said "there was no prosecution sought" in light of Trump's executive order ending the practice of separating families.
Mr Trump's backtrack came on World Refugee Day, which his predecessor Barack Obama had used to call for an end to the practice of splitting children from their parents.
Grijalva isn't hopeful, especially with midterm elections coming up in November.
"This is a bill that has consensus".
Rejection of both would represent an embarrassment for President Donald Trump, who has supported them.
Rep. Debbie Lesko, R-Peoria, who was at the White House to discuss border regulation Wednesday, agreed that it is Congress' responsibility to "permanently fix our broken immigration system and prevent this from happening in the future". On Tuesday, she was heckled out of a Mexican restaurant.
Ahead of voting Thursday, the results of the outreach were mixed.
During the course of the week, governors of the US states of Colorado, Maryland, Rhode Island and NY ordered their state assets such as National Guard personnel or equipment be refrained from being used to support the Trump administration's mission to secure the US-Mexico border. "It won't be easy". "This afternoon would be good", Trump said. Another, Rep. Lou Barletta, who is running for Senate in Pennsylvania, told Trump at the meeting he would have to remain a no vote.
He did not immediately provide details of the bill, but said it resolves the issue of so-called Dreamers, undocumented adult migrants who entered the United States as children, "in a very elegant way".
But a small group of influential moderates was also feeling burned after long negotiations with conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus and the Republican Study Committee, which make up the bulk of the GOP majority and appeared poised to abandon the compromise. The measure is unlikely to pick up much, if any, Democratic support.

President Trump Argues There's No Alternative to Family Separation Policy
Before, if you were caught crossing the border illegally and you had children with you, you might not have gone to jail. The church said the move was approved by 600 of its clergy and laity.
Republicans have never been able to pass a big immigration overhaul on their own, despite talking about the issue for years. It is expected to fail.
New York Mayor Bill De Blasio announced he would visit a camp in Tornillo, Texas, on Thursday that the government recently constructed to house immigrant children. But Trump was loathe to give up leverage in the fight for his border wall funding and other priorities. And it revises the longstanding preference for family visas in favor of a merit system based on education level and work skills.
President Trump on Wednesday signed an Executive Order to end the separation of children from parents if they try to enter the United States illegally.
Citing a source familiar with the drafting of the order, Reid reported the order does not override the 1993 Flores v. Reno Supreme Court case, which says that detained migrant children can not be held in government detention facilities for more than 20 days. "We have court cases, right, that prohibit us from keeping families together".
The "zero tolerance" policy put into place last month moves adults to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service and sends many children to facilities run by the Department of Health and Human Services.
"We are going to have very strong borders, but we will keep the families together", Trump said. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has set up a hotline for parents to call after they are released from custody.
Wednesday's move marked a rare instance since Trump took office in January 2017 in which he has changed course on a controversial policy, rather than digging in. Meadows said he was now opposing the bill. The agency later walked back the statement but said any further plans to reunite families were still in development.
"I was passionate, I was not yelling", Meadows said of his apparent disagreement with Ryan. "I was not yelling". Democrats there have enough votes to use procedural delays to kill it. Curbelo said that Nielsen pledged to work to reunite children now separated from their parents "as soon as possible". The policy has been in force for around ten weeks.
Trump, who remained on the sidelines for much of the debate, nearly upended the process late last week by saying he would not back the compromise bill. Faced with questions from lawmakers on the new development, an aide said the team felt "totally caught off guard".
As Trump prepared to sign the executive order, he was seen by staffers outside on a bench near the Rose Garden, laughing and chatting with colleagues. That left leaders scrambling Wednesday to ensure rank-and file lawmakers that Trump would stick with them.
Both House bills, which Democrats and immigration advocacy groups oppose, would fund Trump's proposed wall and reduce legal migration, in part by denying visas for some relatives of US residents and citizens living overseas.
