The House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly to reject the “Goodlatte II” compromise immigration bill that joined conservative and moderate proposals. The final vote was 121-301.

President Donald Trump issued an all-caps endorsement of the legislation on Wednesday morning.

CNN explains that the legislation “would have provided a path to citizenship for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, as well as $25 billion for border security, including the President’s border wall.”
