Supporters of President Donald Trump's border wall call Wednesday's rejection of a compromise immigration bill a missed opportunity.
Congressman Kevin Brady, chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, says it's unlikely another immigration bill will go before lawmakers ahead of the midterm elections.
“This was a fine opportunity to secure the border in a way that hasn't been done before, to shut the backdoor of illegal immigration and start to fix the front door of legal immigration,” says Brady.
The Woodlands Republican says he's just as disappointed as those voters who put Trump in office because of his pledge to build a border wall.
“We've already funded 95 miles of border wall, and we're continue to work with this president to try to get the full $25 billion for the wall, for the new border agents and for the smart technology what would compliment the border.”
