WATCH: House GOP tests DACA-bill support 

House GOP leaders began testing support Wednesday among Republican lawmakers for a bill backed by President Trump to protect so-called Dreamers.

Rep. Mark Walker (R-N.C.), the chairman of the Republican Study Committee, told The Hill that he’s “anxious to see what the [whip] vote comes back as.” 

It’s unclear how many Republicans in the 238-member caucus will back the bill, which Democrats oppose. If the GOP can find 218 votes for the legislation in their own caucus, it will come to the floor for a vote.

The bill includes all four of President Trunp’s “pillars” necessary for him to sign an immigration measure: border enforcement; ending so-called chain migration, also called family migration; a fix for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and an end to the diversity visa lottery system.
