House lawmakers may have reached a tentative immigration deal. That’s according to moderate Republican leader Jeff Denham, who made the comment after a two hour closed-door meeting Thursday.

Denham said the deal includes funding for border security, including the wall, an eight-year path to citizenship for ‘Dreamers’ and no e-verify.

However, some members of the Freedom Caucus denied the agreement was reached, saying they are waiting to see the proposal on paper.

Lawmakers have until Tuesday to get that done or a discharge petition would reemerge.

That petition allows moderates to bypass more conservative Republican leaders to force an immigration vote on the House floor.

On Thursday, Speaker Paul Ryan called that petition “pointless,” but reiterated that progress is being made.
