WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan will advance two competing immigration bills to the full House of Representatives next week in an attempt to resolve a deep split within the Republican Party on legislation to protect illegal “Dreamer” immigrants from deportation.
AshLee Strong, a spokeswoman for Ryan, said in a statement that debate on the bills are intended to “resolve the border security and immigration issues” that have been roiling House Republicans for several weeks.
But details of the contents of those bills were not immediately available.
Here's the statement made by Strong:
Members across the Republican 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," Huse Speaker Paul Ryan's spokeswoman AshLee Strong said late Tuesday. "The full Conference will discuss tomorrow morning and we'll have more to share at that point.
This part of immigration reform has taken far to long. Hopefully this brings us one step closer to an actual conclusion.
