House Republicans are holding their weekly press conference on Wednesday as lawmakers aim to bring two separate immigration bills to the floor for a vote next week. Rnight that members of the conference “have negotiated directly and in good faith with each other for several weeks, and as a result, the House will consider two bills next week that will avert the discharge petition and resolve the border security and immigration issues.”
The move comes as a possible avenue for members toafter previous failed attempts to provide a lasting fix to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA). The agreement also came together as moderate Republicans appeared close to clinching the necessary support to force a vote using a discharge petition.
The discharge petition ultimately received 216 signatures. Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-TX, the lone Democrat who was withholding support, signed the petition Tuesday evening., saying it would result in a presidential veto.
