GOP Lawmakers Want Trump Tweet Before Vote on Bill

“House Republicans are rushing to assemble a compromise immigration bill for a vote next week alongside an existing conservative proposal, a strategy that a White House official told GOP lawmakers has President Trump’s blessing,” Bloomberg reports.

“Lawmakers from the conservative Republican Study Committee told Stephen Miller, however, that immigration is such a hot-button issue in their districts that they need an explicit and public Trump tweet — not just a closed door meeting with a staffer — to give them political cover to vote for legislation that hardliners could label as ‘amnesty’ for undocumented immigrants.”
