Powerful Republican Committee Wants Vote On Goodlatte’s Conservative DACA Bill

An influential caucus of conservative Republicans is pushing House Speaker Paul Ryan to hold a vote on an immigration reform bill that has emerged as a White House favorite.
The 150-member Republican Study Committee (RSC) announced Tuesday that it endorses the Securing America’s Future Act, which gives legal status to certain younger illegal immigrants in exchange for a host of conservative immigration reforms.
Critically, the bill contains provisions on the three concessions demanded by President Donald Trump as part of an amnesty for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program: border wall funding, limits on chain migration, and the end to the diversity visa lottery.
The RSC’s steering committee voted to back the bill and called for a floor vote in the House.
“The Securing America’s Future Act is the framework to strengthen border security, increase interior enforcement and resolve the DACA situation,” the steering committee said in a statement, according to CNN. “We believe an eventual stand alone floor vote is essential. We oppose any process for a DACA solution that favors a backroom deal with Democrats over regular order in the House.”
