They're trying that. It's true that when the House killed two GOPimmigration bills in recent days, Democrats voted unanimously against them.
"Disappointment is no longer a word I utilize here in Washington, DC", said Rep. Tom Reed, a Republican from NY who voted for the compromise.
The defeat reflects GOP worries over alienating conservatives, whom they'll need in this fall's elections.
Democrats voted en masse against the House legislation, which would provide a shot at citizenship for hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought illegally to the U.S.as children.
A senior GOP aide argued the vote count for the Goodlatte bill was higher than the vote count for the compromise bill only "because people knew that would fail".
Trump's views on the issue have repeatedly flip-flopped.
"Our badly-broken immigration system must be fixed, but the legislation before the House today was not the solution".
Both bills were backed by the White House, whose "zero tolerance" policy against illegal immigration has come under fire home and overseas over the forced separation of children from their parents entering the United States illegally.
Republican Representative Mark Meadows, the head of the hard-right House Freedom Caucus, told reporters after the vote that while two immigration bills failed over the past week, he held out a hope a third, narrow immigration measure could pass the House. It failed by a greater margin than a conservative bill that garnered 193 votes last week.
In a last-ditch effort to round up more support, GOP negotiators were considering an amendment requiring employers to verify legal status of employees and addressing immigrant workers in the agricultural sector. If House Republicans pass a bill making asylum requests tougher, it's not going anywhere in the Senate.
"It is critical that Congress advance immigration reform so we can finally address our nation's critical immigration challenges, and I remain committed to working with my Republican colleagues and across the aisle to see that we solve it", he said.
Chao told the protesters, "Why don't you leave my husband alone?" In addition to achieving the priorities above, it would have also secured our border, permanently protected DREAMers, and ended the policy of separating families at the border. They also are asking for an estimated cost of reuniting families.
Chao, an immigrant who came to the U.S.as a child, was confirmed by the Senate in 2017 as President Donald Trump's Transportation secretary.
That was defeated 230-190, with Republicans calling it a distraction from the bigger debate over illegal immigration.
The tweet gives potential new life to a measure that was widely expected to lose in voting Wednesday.
It was the first time that Trump publicly offered support for the legislation after telling House Republicans behind closed doors last week that he supported their immigration strategy "1000 percent" but not explicitly backing this measure.
A far-reaching Republican immigration bill is careening toward likely House rejection.
Several House conservatives left a closed-door meeting of Republicans early on Tuesday expressing discontent with the broad bill.
Faced with both domestic and global outrage, Trump last week signed an executive order to halt the family separation practice, but made no specific provisions for those already split apart.
As such, the compromise bill (dubbed "Goodlatte 2") attracted fewer GOP votes than the hardline one. Democrats are set to vote solidly against it.
The president's message is a sharp turn from last week when he blamed Democrats for obstructing potential immigration reform and said that Republicans "should stop wasting their time on Immigration" until after the midterms.
