House Rejects GOP Hardline Immigration Plan: Vote on Compromise Bill Delayed

Republican leaders further delayed vote on GOP immigration bill until 
next week in the face of opposition. Earlier, the House of 
Representatives on June 21 voted down a conservative immigration bill 
introduced by Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.).

House Republican leaders abruptly 
postponed a high-stakes vote Thursday on GOP immigration legislation 
that appeared headed to defeat, despite President Trump’s last-minute 

Several GOP hard-liners said Thursday, 
June 21, there was nothing leaders could do to convince them to vote for
 the bill. “I’m a big fat ‘no,’ capital letters,” said Rep. Lou Barletta
 (R-Pa.). “It’s amnesty, chain migration, and there’s no guarantee the 
wall will be built.”

Republican leaders had set up two votes 
on their GOP bills — one on a hardline measure, the other on a 
compromise negotiated by conservatives and moderates.

In the first vote, the House rejected 
the hardline measure that would have imposed limits on legal immigration
 and provided temporary relief to young undocumented immigrants. The 
vote was 231-193.

As the vote occurred on a chaotic day on Capitol Hill, word circulated that the second vote would be postponed.

The legislation would have provided a 
pathway to citizenship for young undocumented immigrants, imposed limits
 on legal immigration and provided $25 billion for Trump’s border wall. 
The bill also would have kept migrant families together at the border in
 detention centers.

Neither bill was negotiated with 
Democrats or was expected to garner any Democratic votes. The 
separations crisis has prompted Democrats to dig in against the 
Republican immigration efforts barring a complete reversal of Trump’s 
“zero tolerance” policy.

“Democrats are dedicated to securing our
 border, but we don’t think putting children in cages is the way to do 
it,” Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday. “This is 
outside the circle of human behavior.”

As prospects on Capitol Hill appeared to
 dim, Trump teed off on Democrats during the outset of a Cabinet meeting
 at the White House, suggesting that they were standing in the way of 
Republican success on immigration reform.

“They say no to everything,” Trump said.
 “They’re obstructionists because they think that’s good politically. I 
think it’s bad politically — for them, I think it’s bad politically. 
We’ll see.”

Trump attacked Pelosi and Senate
 Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) as “extremist open-border 
Democrats” but also said he would welcome their presence at the 
negotiating table.

“We should be able to do a bill,” Trump said. “I’d invite them to come over to the White House anytime they want.”

The White House has made a last-minute 
push to pass legislation amid the brewing border crisis prompted by the 
family separations that resulted on the U.S.-Mexico border from Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy.


Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions
 and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen have all appeared on 
Capitol Hill this week to urge Republican lawmakers to pass legislation.
 They have not specifically urged passage of one alternative, which 
stands to end with Republicans split on their preference and neither 
bill passing.
