Conservatives lining up to block House farm bill

The group is pushing for an immigration vote because the farm bill is one of the last pieces of must-pass legislation the House will tackle between now and a spending bill at the end of September.

The House is debating the farm bill, with a final vote set for Friday. However this 12 months's invoice accommodates measures tightening work and job coaching necessities for meals stamps, which have pushed Democrats away.

"We imagine we've obtained to cope with the immigration challenge, but right here we're nonetheless not coping with it", caucus chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C. informed Fox Information.

A spokeswoman for House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., did not immediately respond to a request for comment. That puts pressure on past Republican critics of costly farm subsidies to vote for them.

The bill had already been on shaky ground. The food stamp program is officially known as SNAP, for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. I believe that even our leadership agrees that the time is now.

The sugar program, a web of price supports, loans and tariffs that critics say gouges consumers, is one of the key battles in this year's farm bill, a five-year renewal of federal farm and nutrition policy that always proves to be a headache for Republicans controlling Congress. "My farmers need us to deal with immigration".

As a concession to moderate Republicans, it would also provide temporary legal protections for the almost 700,000 so-called DREAMers, undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children. Trump has ended DACA, which President Barack Obama instituted, but federal courts have forced the administration to continue providing its protections as a legal battle over it continues.

Similarly, the leader of the moderate effort to force the DACA vote, California Rep. Jeff Denham, said his group was still full steam ahead - though he declined to directly answer whether leadership had made a commitment or promise to his side of the equation about a path forward. "It's my belief that we need a narrow bill with a permanent fix for dreamers and border security".

The moderates have leverage because of a rarely utilized procedure that can force votes if 218 lawmakers — a House majority — sign a petition. But so far, they have been unable to offer a solution that would satisfy all factions.

"We have said for years we would not do a comprehensive bill".

"I've already told them we're going to give them a vote on Goodlatte, so I don't understand the difficulty", McCarthy said.

McCarthy and Ryan are now scrambling for a Plan B, but their options are sparse.

House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway and Representative Collin Peterson, the top Democrat on the panel, both opposed the measure.
