House Sets Debate Next Week on “Dreamer” Immigration Bills

(From Reuters)

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan, in a bid to settle a divisive election-year fight among his fellow Republicans, will bring two competing immigration bills to the House floor next week that are aimed at protecting illegal “Dreamer” immigrants from deportation.

The measures, said Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong, will “resolve the border security and immigration issues” that have been at the center of a dispute between centrist and conservative Republicans.

Representative Mark Meadows, the leader of a hard-right group of House Republicans, told reporters late on Tuesday that one of the bills would provide temporary protections for Dreamers – undocumented immigrants brought into the United States when they were children.

That measure, which the Trump administration has expressed some support for, has been advanced by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte.
