The Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday dampened expectations of lawmakers soon passing immigration reform legislation that is expected to come to the floor next week and which has yet to be publicly released.

"We won't guarantee passage," Paul Ryan, a Republican, said at a press briefing where he described the legislation as a "very good compromise."

"We want to give members the ability to express their positions and I do hope this passes.”
