The U.S. House is not voting on a border crisis bill after Tea Party members withdrew their support over dispute of another measure on deportation relief.

House Speaker John Boehner said in a statement Thursday that the House will continue to work on solutions, however.

Republican leaders had planned to block President Barack Obama from extending deportation relief to any more immigrants in the country illegally, hoping to win conservative votes for the border crisis legislation.

That measure would have prevented Obama from expanding an existing program granting work permits to immigrants brought here illegally as children.

Tea Party members wanted a tougher measure.

The decision to abandon the vote comes a day before Congress goes on a five-week summer break.
