House and Senate diverge on immigration as border fears mount
House Republicans are still wrangling their members to get behind a sweeping border bill they plan to pass this week.
Once they can pull that off, they’re going to face even bigger problems in the Senate.
The House GOP legislation is stocked with items on the party’s immigration wish list, from restarting construction of a southern border wall to placing new restrictions on asylum seekers. Even so, Republican leaders are still lining up the GOP votes they need amid concerns over the bill’s treatment of worker databases and cartels.
