WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican leaders say the House will vote to block President Barack Obama from extending relief from deportation to any more immigrants here illegally.

The move is aimed at winning over skeptical conservatives to support an emergency spending bill for the immigration crisis on the border.

To get conservative votes for that legislation, House Republican leaders have agreed to a second vote on a measure to keep Obama from expanding an existing program granting work permits to immigrants brought here illegally as children.

The two votes will be held Thursday as Congress wraps up its work before heading out for a five-week recess.
