WASHINGTON/NEW YORK, June 27 (Reuters) – The U.S. House of Representatives rejected a broad “compromise” immigration bill on Wednesday, as expected, that would have addressed the crisis of families being separated at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The House could still vote as early as this week on a narrower measure that is still being developed and that would focus specifically on the family separations issue.

On a 121-301 vote, the Republican-controlled House rejected a bill that addressed the family separations, but also gave long-term protections to young “Dreamer” immigrants brought into the country years ago illegally as children, and provided funding for President Donald Trump’s proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall.
