Republican lawmaker sees House immigration bill failing: Fox News

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Conservative Republican Representative Mark Meadows said on Monday he expects an immigration bill to be offered in the House of Representatives on Tuesday will fail, but that it will be followed by legislation aimed at keeping immigrant families together at the Mexican border.

Asked on Fox News about the prospects of a second immigration bill passing or failing on Tuesday, Meadows told Fox News: I would think fail right now.

He said he had held discussions over the weekend about possible changes to the legislation.

The House on Thursday rejected a measure favored by conservatives that would have halted the practice of splitting up families and addressed a range of other immigration issues.

Meadows said that even if the compromise measure failed, he expected follow-up legislation aimed primarily at preventing children from being separated from their parents at the border.
