The House is expected to vote later this week on a more moderate immigration bill than the one it killed last week. The so-called compromise bill includes a path to citizenship for young immigrants known as Dreamers, an end to the diversity visa lottery system, limits on family-based immigration, and 25-billion dollars for President Trump's border wall.        President Trump wants illegal immigrants thrown out of the U.S. as soon as they cross the border. Trump tweeted that when someone comes into the country "we must immediately, with no judges or court cases, bring them back from where they came." Meanwhile, California Congresswoman Maxine Waters is calling for people to confront Trump administration officials in public over the government's immigration policy. Her call comes as two top Trump officials have faced backlash at restaurants recently.        A growing wildfire is bearing down on hundreds of buildings in Northern California.
