President Trump would sign either immigration bill up for a vote next week in the House, according to a White House statement, despite Trump telling reporters Friday morning that he wouldn't sign the new GOP immigration bill unveiled this week.

Why it matters: The president's support is crucial for the bill's chances when it's taken up by the House next week. Conservative and moderate Republicans, as well as House leadership, have spent weeks haggling over the details. The more conservative immigration bill by Rep. Bob Goodlatte will also get a vote next week, but it's not expected to pass.
