WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republican leaders plan to meet today in hopes that revised versions of two border bills can sway conservatives.

Before a five-week summer break, the GOP leaders failed yesterday to round up enough votes for a $659 million bill to address the surge in unaccompanied children from Central America crossing into the U.S. illegally.

House Republicans are also trying to secure passage of a bill to make it easier to deport those children.
