House Speaker Paul Ryan was scrambling Thursday to settle a brewing insurrection among Republican lawmakers over immigration as moderates in coalition with Democrats look to force a debate on a series of immigration bills.

Ryan held a lengthy meeting with the House GOP conference Thursday morning in an effort to dissuade proponents of a “discharge petition” from forcing the House into a series of fiery floor debates in the coming weeks.  (Bull...)

He emerged from the session optimistic but with no agreement secured. He said that leadership was working on compromise legislation that would meet President Trump's four pillars for immigration reform that he would sign -- which include tighter border security and immigration restrictions. 

"We are reaching consensus on how to address those four pillars," he said, before adding that "a discharge position will result in no law."

One of the House moderates, Rep. Jeff Denham, R-Calif., said that his group tentatively agreed to an offer from conservatives, but that his group will need to see the specifics in writing first.

Members also met for several hours Wednesday with House leaders as part of the move to stave off the discharge petition and come to an agreement on an immigration deal.

WHAT HAPPENS IF DISCHARGE PETITION SECURES 218 SIGNATURES 

A discharge petition is a rarely successful gambit to force consideration of a bill that requires the signatures of 218 members. 

But the group of centrists -- headed up by Florida Rep. Carlos Curbelo and including other moderates like Denham -- is eager to compel action on immigration. They are reportedly two votes away from securing the 218 votes.

The lawmakers want to push a fix for the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which granted protection to some illegal immigrants who came to the country as children.

I am in complete agreement with.

This is the danger in so many Republicans resigning at the same election, they have nothing to loose by not getting elected again since they are not running. Must be a really big payday in it for them. I certainly hope they are all investigated to determine the linkage to the contracts they receive and the pay they get from whoever it is. Life in prison would be a good place for Mr Ryan to reflect on the advantages and downside of  selling out his country to the highest bidders, and the same goes for any and all who go along with something like this.

John,  For sure they will land with more $$'s and power and security for their career.

This made me sick:
