House would block Obama from curbing deportations

By Staff
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 /> <br /> The move is aimed at winning over skeptical conservatives to support an emergency spending bill for the immigration crisis on the border. <br /> <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 /> <br /> The two votes will be held Thursday as Congress wraps up its work before heading out for a five-week recess.
