GOP leaders discuss immigration with Trump at White House

GOP leaders discuss immigration with Trump at White House

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.

Mr. Ryan and fellow GOP leaders are grappling with one of their biggest challenges yet with the Republican rebels speedily gathering signatures on the "discharge petition".

Moderates included Reps. Denham; Curbelo; David Valdeo, R-California; Fred Upton, R-Michigan; and Will Hurd, R-Texas.

A group of moderate Republicans are backing a plan to bypass GOP leaders by forcing a floor vote on four competing bills to preserve the Obama-era DACA program, which protected young undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. Assuming all of the 193 House Democrats support the effort to bring immigration reform to a vote, just 25 Republicans in total need to sign onto the petition to force action. Are they in favor of the Goodlatte bill? "They disunify our majority".

"We're going forward with the farm bill", Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry, a North Carolina Republican, said as he left the meeting after McCarthy, saying he still expected it to pass Friday.

While Ryan and McCarthy work with Trump on a new plan, some conservatives are pushing for a vote on a conservative bill by House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte.

Beastie Boys announce new memoir, Beastie Boys Book
For starters, it looks like the highly-anticipated tome will have a decidedly straightforward title: Beastie Boys Book. With a style as distinctive and eclectic as a Beastie Boys album, Beastie Boys Book upends the typical music memoir .

Freedom Caucus member Jim Jordan said Republican leadership had been telling members there does not appear to be enough support for passage of Goodlatte's bill, but Jordan still favours voting on it alone rather than having the House vote on it as part of a series of four measures that would be called up by the moderates' petition.

"I'm supportive of that leverage", Sanford said. "Clearly we have had a positive impact on our leadership and this institution because now this issue is being taken seriously and people are thinking through how something can be achieved". Meadows said he's not in a hurry.

"The meeting was prompted when we got number 20 today and they know we're continuing to make upward progress", Upton said. "We want to advance something that has a chance of going into law where the President would support it".

At a press availability on Wednesday morning, Ryan explained his reasoning: "Obviously, we do not agree with discharge petitions".

Asked by reporters why the Freedom Caucus was linking the farm and immigration initiatives, the group's head, Representative Mark Meadows, said: "This (farm bill) is literally the last must-pass piece of legislation that we have between now and the spending bill that will come up in October". And they want a solution on DACA and they want a solution on the border and on security issues.
