GOP Rallies Support for Compromise Bill in Effort to Overhaul Immigration

Several Republican aides and lawmakers said Trump undermined prospects for success in the House on Thursday with a morning tweet that cast doubt on whether any Republican immigration legislation could pass the Senate.

Trump and congressional Republicans have refused to negotiate with Democrats, instead criticizing them for refusing to vote for whatever the GOP puts in front of them and blaming them for the majority's inability to legislate.

"I did talk to the White House yesterday".

"At minimum, we have to deal with the family situation", McCaul, R-Texas, who is the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said during an interview on "Fox News Sunday" with Chris Wallace.

While both bills were originated by Republicans, one is generally considered the more "conservative" bill, authored by retiring Rep.

Morales said that Mr. Trump's executive order Wednesday fell short. Both bills were largely seen as partisan measures with dim chances of passage and nearly no path forward to becoming law, the latest failure in Congress to reach consensus on the divisive issue.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy speaks with reporters about the Republican led immigration reform effort on U.S. Capitol in Washington, U.S., June 21, 2018.

The compromise bill, which had been set for a vote later in the day, was crafted to appeal to more Republicans, some of whom joined with Democrats to defeat the more conservative immigration measure.

Both bills would have addressed the separations but also included funding for the promised border wall and a reduction of legal migration.

Republican Rep. Mike Simpson of Idaho said lawmakers who are counting on Trump to provide a presidential nudge should reconsider. "Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solve this decades old problem".

Republican leaders plan to consider a bill created to bridge the gap their conservative and more moderate members, but votes twice have been postponed due to lack of support.

The GOP is postponing a vote on the so-called "compromise" immigration bill in order to iron out last-minute details.

If the House's immigration bills fail on Thursday, as expected, King thinks the lower chamber should wait to see what the Senate can pass.

House Republican leaders suddenly delayed a vote Thursday on a compromise measure that has the support of key moderate Republican after concluding they lacked enough support to gain passage despite the growing controversy over separating children from their families at the U.S. -Mexico border.

"We reached, I think, a good consensus, and suddenly we wake up to another tweet", said Rep. Dennis A. Ross (R-Fla.). Asked if the House will take up a vote on the compromise bill Friday, Scalise said, "right now we're going to keep working with our members". "We're going to have a safe country". "And to those who say, 'But the judges, the judges!' the answer is: Article III institutions are not more important than those of Articles I and II combined". Images of toddlers crying behind chain-link fences, and reports of federal agents taking infants and young children to distant states, forced a rare retreat from the White House.

On DACA - The conservative bill allows for current recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to apply for a three-year renewable legal status allowing them to work and travel overseas.
