Rep. Bob Goodlatte's conservative immigration bill, which is aligned with President Trump's 4-pillar immigration priorities, will get a vote next month ahead of a revote on the farm bill on June 22, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise announced Monday night, per Roll Call.

Why it matters: The House Freedom Caucus sunk the $867 billion agriculture bill last Friday, demanding a vote on the immigration bill first. And now, Scalise's announcement could help get that bill passed.
