WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican leaders say the House will vote to block President Barack Obama from extending relief from deportation to any more immigrants here illegally. <br />
The move is aimed at winning over skeptical conservatives to support an emergency spending bill for the immigration crisis on the border. <br />
To get conservative votes for that legislation, House Republican leaders have agreed to a second vote on a measure to keep Obama from expanding an existing program granting work permits to immigrants brought here illegally as children. <br />
The two votes will be held Thursday as Congress wraps up its work before heading out for a five-week recess.
A blustery winter storm dumped snow and ice across the West on Wednesday, making driving treacherous in the mountains from California to the Rockies and forcing residents and party-goers in some usually sun-soaked cities to bundle up for a frosty New Year's.
House Republican leaders rallied around one of their own, Whip Steve Scalise, on Tuesday after he said he regrets speaking 12 years ago to a white supremacist organization and condemns the views of such groups.
