Comprehensive immigration reform hit a wall in the lower chamber as House lawmakers are forced to delay the vote on the only immigration bill still standing.
On Thursday, GOP leaders announced that a vote on the compromise bill will be postponed until next week, so lawmakers have a chance to fully review the legislation.
The decision comes after several Republicans complained about the short amount of time they were given to read through the bill, and after they accused House leadership of trying to rush a vote.
Conservatives failed to pass the Goodlatte bill, with all Democrats and 41 Republicans voting against the legislation.
That bill would have secured more funding for the president’s border wall, and would have granted temporary legal status to DACA recipients instead of permanent amnesty.
