Republicans' efforts to overhaul immigration may be in trouble. A vote on the more conservative of two GOP-proposed bills failed on the House floor Thursday, and the vote on the more moderate bill was delayed until Friday. House Republicans are expected to meet at 4:30 p.m. Thursday for a briefing on the more moderate bill. While both bills were originated by Republicans, one is generally considered the more "conservative" bill, authored by retiring Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Virginia. The other bill, the "compromise" or "moderate" bill, comes from Republican leadership. President Trump has, through White House officials, expressed his support for both pieces of legislation.

By Eugene Kiely and D'Angelo Gore Factcheck.org Published 3:40 p.m. UTC May 31, 2018 At a campaign rally in Nashville, President Trump repeated a bushelful of false and misleading claims, and added a few new ones: Trump said the individual mandate provision of the Affordable Care Act was "so unconstitutional." The Supreme Court upheld the mandate. In June 2012, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote that the penalty can be considered a tax that is within the power of Congress to impose. The president also said the Senate’s failure to pass a bill that would have repealed and replaced the Affordable Care Act 'cost our country $1 trillion in entitlement saving." Congressional budget experts say it would have saved a net total of $321 billion over 10 years. The president also repeated numerous false, misleading and exaggerated claims on wages, trade, immigration and world opinion of the U.S. Affordable Care Act The president held a "Make America Great … [Read more...] about Fact check: Trump repeats a heap of false, misleading claims at Nashville rally
