House Overwhelmingly Fails to Pass Goodlatte Compromise Immigration Bill

The House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly to reject the “Goodlatte II” compromise immigration bill that joined conservative and moderate proposals. The final vote was 121-301.
President Donald Trump issued an all-caps endorsement of the legislation on Wednesday morning.
CNN explains that the legislation "would have provided a path to citizenship for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, as well as $25 billion for border security, including the President's border wall."
