Still struggling to secure the votes to pass their border funding bill, House GOP leaders are discussing a way to add a provision that would bar the President from allowing any more deferments for children of undocumented workers in the U.S. now, according to a senior House GOP aide.
The change to the 2012 Obama administration policy known as "DACA" has been pushed by conservative Sen. Ted Cruz, and a group of House Republicans has also pressed House leaders to add it to their $659 million border measure.
Leaders are working out the mechanics for how the change would be added, but they are expected to allow a separate vote on the provision and then send the language to the Senate.
The White House already issued a veto threat on the House border bill, and Senate Democrats are not expected to take it up. But many rank-and-file Republican worry about going home for the five-week recess without passing something to address the border crisis.
