Whip List on House GOP border bill

House Republicans are attempting to pass legislation to address the border crisis, but it remains to be seen if they have the votes.
 
Democratic leaders are whipping against the measure, though at least a handful of Democrats are expected to back it. Still, Republicans must minimize defections, and if there are more than two dozen, the legislation could fall short. Tea Party Sen. Ted CruzTed CruzCruz: I'd rather have Trump talk to Taiwan than Cuba or Iran Lewandowski: Top Cruz aide advised Trump team before NH primary Five reasons why Donald Trump could be the 'Greatest Communicator' MORE (R-Texas) is urging House Republicans to oppose the bill.

Lacking the votes, House Republican leaders on Wednesday night shifted strategy, seeking two votes on their $659 million border bill as well as legislation that would curtail President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

The following is a rundown of where members stand on the bill. A vote is expected Thursday.
