House to vote on GOP compromise immigration bill

Political News

House Republicans plan to bring their compromise immigration bill to a vote Wednesday, despite their lack of two things: guidance on the measure from President Trump, and confidence that it will pass.

 The measure ends family separation and provides $25 billion for a border wall. 

 House Speaker Paul Ryan said Tuesday that if the compromise bill fails, they’ll pursue a narrow bill to address the situation at the border. 

 The House vote comes just a day after a federal judge ruled that U.S. immigration agents could no longer separate parents and children caught crossing the border illegally, and must work to reunite those families.

 Mr. Trump will likely address the immigration issue Wednesday night, during a rally in North Dakota.
