WASHINGTON (AP) - Leaders of warring House Republican factions are meeting in search of an immigration compromise.

Monday's talks occurred as centrist Republicans remain five GOP signatures away from being able to force party leaders to hold votes on a series of immigration bills. Should they succeed, it could lead to passage of a middle-ground measure backed by a few Republicans and all Democrats. Ryan has said he will avert that outcome, and many conservatives consider it intolerable.

Instead, conservative and moderate GOP leaders are looking for changes in a conservative-backed measure that would win centrists' support. But that effort has fallen short for months.
