WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Conservative leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives said on Thursday they believed it was unlikely either of the two immigration bills up for a vote will pass the chamber.

Republican U.S. Representatives Ralph Norman and Mark Meadows told reporters at the Capitol they did not think the bills had enough support in the Republican-controlled House. “There is still some work to be done as we grapple with the immigration issues,” Meadows said.
