SHOW TRANSCRIPT

The House has rejected the GOP's compromise immigration bill.

The measure was shot down Wednesday in a whopping 121-301 vote. It needed 218 votes to pass.

No Democrats voted in favor of the bill, and more than 100 Republicans voted against it.

The bill was a compromise Republicans negotiated within their own party. As Newsy previously reported, it would have created a path to citizenship for Dreamers. It also would've set aside $25 billion for a southern border wall and other security measures.
