House GOP leaders canceled a Thursday vote on their $659 million border bill, signaling their failure to corral members behind the measure.
A significant number of conservative Republicans had balked at sending any money to the White House for the border, and Democrats were generally united in opposing the measure.
The decision is another defeat for House GOP leaders, who have repeatedly failed to bring their members in line on tough votes.
Signs of trouble emerged late Wednesday night when the House Rules Committee delayed reporting a rule for the border bill.
Even a late decision by leaders set up a separate vote on preventing President Obama's Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA) program from being expanded didn't save the funding bill.

The DACA program defers the deportations of certain undocumented people who came to the United States as children. The House would only have voted on that measure if the funding bill had been approved.
