White House pressures Republicans to withdraw from immigration bill

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House on Thursday pressured Republican senators who had signed on to a bipartisan immigration bill to withdraw their sponsorship, saying the bill would hurt the administration’s ability to enforce immigration law.

“That bill is officially - if it weren’t already obvious - DOA” or dead on arrival, a White House official told reporters, underscoring that President Donald Trump would veto the bill if it passed.
