Republican leaders are facing long odds as they scramble to thwart an
internal rebellion over immigration just months before November’s

The leaders are attempting to broker a deal that satisfies competing
factions of their restive conference and defuses a push by mutinous
centrists threatening to force action to protect young undocumented
immigrants in a series of head-to-head floor votes that would highlight
deep GOP divisions over an issue that has long been radioactive within
the party.

The dispute has centered largely on what legal protections should be
extended to those living in the country illegally, and to whom they
should apply — thorny enough questions on their own. But the leaders’
effort was further complicated on Thursday, when President Trump warned
that he'd veto any bill to shore up the Deferred Action for Childhood
Arrivals (DACA) program if it fails to fund his favored wall at the
U.S.-Mexico border.

“Unless it improves a wall — and I mean a wall, a real wall — and unless
it improves very strong border security, there’ll be no approvals from
me, because I have to either approve it or not,” Trump said in an
interview with Fox News Channel.
