Two immigration bills that would include protections for DACA recipients will get a vote in the House next week, House Speaker Paul Ryan's office announced Tuesday evening, averting efforts to force votes on four immigration bills led by moderate Republicans.

The big picture: Rep. Bob Goodlatte's bill, which is popular among hardline conservatives and most closely follows the president's immigration priorities, will get a vote, according to Politico, but is not expected to pass. The second vote will be on the Republican compromise bill, which has yet to be revealed and whose details are still being haggled over between moderates and conservative Freedom Caucus members.

Be smart: Immigration is a hugely controversial and partisan issue, particularly in this administration, and these votes come ahead of a perilous midterm season for House Republicans.

  • Even if a bill managed to pass the House, it would have an even tougher time making it through the Senate which failed to find a DACA solution earlier this year. And with court injunctions keeping the DACA program running for the next several months at least, there is no immediacy.

The clock is ticking for tens of thousands of anxious airline employees, who face mass reductions when the government's current payroll support program expires on Sept. 30.

Where it stands: Airline CEOs met Thursday with White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, who said President Trump would support an additional $25 billion from Congress to extend the current aid package through next March.

House Democrats ask DOJ watchdog to probe Durham's Trump-Russia investigation

Four Democratic House committee chairs on Friday asked the Justice Department's inspector general to launch an "emergency investigation" into whether Attorney General Bill Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham, his appointee, are taking actions that could "improperly influence the upcoming presidential election."

Catch up quick: Last year, Barr tapped Durham to conduct a sweeping investigation into the origins of the FBI's 2016 Russia probe, after he and President Trump claimed that it was unjustified and a "hoax."
