WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans plan to take broad aim at President Barack Obama’s immigration policies next week, including votes to overturn protections for immigrants brought illegally to this country as kids.

The plan emerging Friday satisfies demands from the most conservative lawmakers and goes beyond the approach initially discussed within the House GOP leadership ranks.

House Republicans had planned to vote on a bill to block funding for executive actions Obama announced in November that provided deportation protections for millions of immigrants in the country illegally.

Conservatives in the GOP caucus pressed leadership to go further, and also shut down an earlier 2012 program that has granted work permits to more than 500,000 immigrants brought here illegally as kids.
