GOP Struggles to Save Immigration Bill 06/22 06:07

   The House Republican immigration overhaul is dangling precariously. It is 
imperiled by stubborn differences between conservative and moderate factions -- 
and by President Donald Trump's running commentary about a bill he only 
half-heartedly supported and then suggested would never become law.

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- The House Republican immigration overhaul is dangling 
precariously. It is imperiled by stubborn differences between conservative and 
moderate factions --- and by President Donald Trump's running commentary about 
a bill he only half-heartedly supported and then suggested would never become 
law.

   Republican leaders were twice forced to postpone final voting, first until 
Friday and then punting it to next week, as negotiators made a last-ditch push 
for support.

   They were trying to persuade colleagues to seize the moment and tackle 
immigration problems by approving the bill, which includes $25 billion for 
Trump's border wall and a path to citizenship for young immigrants who have 
lived in the U.S. illegally since childhood.
