Deadline day arrives in Republican immigration showdown

Immigration negotiations between House GOP conservatives and moderates have stalled, dramatically boosting the chances that a discharge petition on Dreamers will reach the House floor in late June. That would give Ryan and other party leaders more time to search for a compromise once the discharge petition countdown clock starts. In giving Dreamers a pathway to citizenship, it would satisfy the top demand of moderates. That plan, at least, would avoid the embarrassment of a Democratic-backed immigration bill passing the Republican-led House, a likely outcome if the discharge petition moves forward.
