U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan will advance two competing immigration bills to the full House of Representatives next week in an attempt to resolve a deep split within the Republican Party on legislation to protect illegal "Dreamer" immigrants from deportation.

A spokeswoman for Ryan said in a statement that debate on the bills is intended to "resolve the border security and immigration issues" that have been roiling House Republicans for several weeks.

But details of the contents of those bills were not immediately available.
