"Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solve this decades old problem".
The GOP will need 218 votes in the House in order to pass the legislation.
Republicans should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November.
Reps. Jeff Denham, R-California, and Carlos Curbelo, R-Florida, who have led the Republicans' immigration reform effort, told McClatchy all options were open if the compromise bill failed, including forcing a vote without leadership approval.
"What is the objective of the House doing good immigration bills when you need 9 votes by Democrats in the Senate, and the Dems are only looking to Obstruct (which they feel is good for them in the Mid-Terms)", he tweeted. Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) relayed that message to House Republicans, which factored into their decision to continue negotiations on legislation into next week.
"You're talking about young people who are experiencing traumas, going through the journey of migration, fleeing extreme violence, and are now being put in the worst possible situation", said Bitta Mostofi, commissioner of the NY mayor's Office of Immigration Affairs.
The fact that votes on immigration bills are happening at all is because of an effort by moderate Republicans who grew exhausted of their party's failure to act on immigration.
Will also acknowledged that if President Donald Trump "wants to be renominated, he will be", which is why Weld is again courting the Libertarian Party's nomination and not the GOP's.

Whether the bill passes will be up to some of Trump's closest conservative allies in Congress, a direct reflection of whether members believe they can trust him to spend his own political capital and shield them from any backlash they may face from the base. The House was initially scheduled to vote on the bill Thursday night, but it was pushed to Friday and then next week after members asked for more time to read the bill.
Indeed, while the current floundering is largely a Republican dilemma, Washington has had every iteration of partisan control of the White House and Congress over the past 12 years, and the result has always been the same: failure.
USA immigration laws, Trump declared, are "the weakest in the history of the world".
Republicans joined Democrats to vote by 193-231 to scupper the more hawkish bill.
"While we must work to reduce the occurrence of illegal border crossings, it is unacceptable to separate young children from their parents", he said in a statement.
Trump made the remarks on Friday in an auditorium in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, adjacent to the White House, where he presided over an event with "Angel Families" - those who have had relatives killed by people who have entered the country illegally.
GOP leaders said they would press on anyway, but his comments further damaged their attempt to win over wavering lawmakers for a measure already facing likely defeat.
"Once the pictures of the families came to the fore, that is the issue", Continetti said. "I hate to use the world simple, but I will say it was less complex".
