The House's "Gang of 8" has failed in its efforts to craft an immigration reform bill and will meet today for the last time, ABC News reports.

Republican members of the team insist that newly legalized workers not be given access to Obamacare during their pathway to citizenship, essentially killing the deal, sources tell ABC.

Democratic members of the group say that since the workers would be paying taxes they deserve health care benefits. There is no expectation that the group of four Democrats and four Republicans will overcome the impasse, making it likely that any immigration legislation will move forward in piecemeal fashion.

The smaller bills would not include the 15-year pathway to citizenship that was part of the current talks.
