Schumer warns ‘House moderates’ against immigration compromise bill

Greg Nash

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is telling moderate House Republicans that they will “lose all credibility” if they choose to support the GOP’s compromise immigration bill. 

The New York Democrat blasted the deal between GOP hard-liners and centrists, calling on Republicans in the lower chamber not to “enact the hard right’s agenda.”

{mosads}Schumer’s comments on Twitter come one day before President Trump is slated to meet with House Republicans to discuss the bill crafted following meetings between leadership, top members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus and centrists who backed forcing votes on four separate proposals. 

House GOP leadership hopes to bring up both the compromise bill and a conservative-backed bill crafted by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mike McCaul (R-Texas) before the end of the week. Floor votes have not yet been scheduled for either measure.
