House Speaker Ryan seeks to head off Republican revolt on immigration | Reuters


Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy told fellow Republicans at the closed-door morning meeting that things were going well for them, and “let’s not create a problem of our own making,” one House Republican lawmaker said, asking not to be named.

Ryan said he was working with the White House on a measure that would win President Donald Trump’s support. At the news conference, Ryan did not provide details or a timetable for advancing such legislation.

So far, 20 of the House’s 235 Republicans had signed a petition to force an immigration debate that would allow the bill with the most votes to advance to the Senate.
