  • House Republican Rebels May Be Close To Forcing A Vote On DACA

Meanwhile, Ryan also faced a challenge from the other wing of his party, as hard-right conservative members of the House Freedom Caucus discussed withholding their votes on an unrelated farm bill later this week unless Ryan agrees to bring to the floor a tough bill clamping down on legal and illegal immigration.

House Speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday reiterated GOP leaders' opposition to a bipartisan effort to force a vote on legislation that would protect the estimated 800,000 recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program from deportation.

John Katko of NY and David Trott of MI on Wednesday joined a push from 18 other centrist Republicans to force a House floor vote on a series of immigration bills, including ones with a path to citizenship for young undocumented immigrants known as Dreamers.

Rep. Bill Flores paraphrased the speaker as telling Republicans to "quit messing around with the discharge petition" and that it's "not a path to success". "We predict they are a massive mistake". A source familiar with his remarks said McCarthy was quite serious in warning the conference about the effects the discharge petition could have on the midterms.

"We don't have an agreement", House Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) told reporters Thursday after coming out of a meeting with his conservative group.

House Republican Rebels May Be Close To Forcing A Vote On DACA

Many Republicans doubt that immigration bill has enough support to pass the House.

"We imagine that this bipartisan invoice that the members have put collectively, who share the worth of defending the DREAMers, is the invoice that will win if they might simply give us a vote, give us an opportunity".

Like Trump, Ryan also has said he wants to deal with the DACA problem that has left the immigrants in limbo, but so far has refused to advance any bill. An unspecified number of Freedom Caucus members are offering their support on the farm bill in exchange for a vote on the Goodlatte bill. "We want to advance something that has a chance going into law where the president would support it".

Other members and Flores said Ryan told his colleagues that he met with President Donald Trump the day before and that leadership and the White House were working on a plan that could ultimately pass both chambers of Congress and get the President's signature. That legislation, the USA Act of 2018* [H.R.4796], states it would "provide relief from removal and adjustment of status of certain individuals who are long-term United States residents and who entered the United States before reaching the age of 18, improve border security, [and] foster United States engagement in Central America". "But every one of them looked me in the eye and said they planned to bring a bill to the floor".

"I'm supportive of that leverage", Sanford said.
