Winner of the week
Bill Nelson. Being denied entry to the South Florida facility holding immigrant children only brought more attention to the Democrat seeking a fourth term. He doesn't always stand out but Nelson broke through on an issue sparking bipartisan outrage over the Trump administration policy. Nelson, 75, amplified his message on fast-acting social media.
Loser of the week
South Florida Congressional Republicans. After working for weeks on a compromise immigration bill that would have given DACA recipients a path to citizenship along with funding for enhanced border security measures, south Florida Republicans Carlos Curbelo, Mario Diaz-Balart and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen saw their hopes scuttled by a tweet from President Trump.
