WASHINGTON -

(AP) - President Donald Trump is complaining that Democrats "won't vote for anything!" after the House killed a hard-right immigration bill and Republican leaders delayed a planned vote on a compromise package Thursday.

Trump says in a tweet that, "You cannot pass legislation on immigration whether it be for safety and security or any other reason including 'heart,' without getting Dem votes."

He claims the "Problem is, they don't care about security and R's do."

Trump also says, "We have to maintain strong borders or we will no longer have a country that we can be proud of - and if we show any weakness, millions of people will journey into our country."

House leaders have delayed a vote on a compromise GOP immigration bill until next week after the House rejected a conservative version.
