WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan said on Sunday that the House of Representatives would accept a bill funding the government through Feb. 8 and ending the current shutdown of federal agencies if the Senate can pass the measure.

"We've agreed that we would accept that in the House," Ryan said on CBS's Face the Nation. "So we will see sometime today whether or not they have the votes for that (in the Senate)."

Senate Republican leaders have said the chamber will vote on the measure to fund the government through Feb. 8 at 1 a.m. EST (0600 GMT) on Monday, unless Democrats agree to hold the vote sooner.

By Susan Heavey WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday rejected a push by moderate congressional Republicans for a "Dreamer" immigration deal, saying he would only back sweeping immigration legislation that met all of his demands, including a U.S-Mexico border wall. "Unless it includes a wall, and I mean a wall, a real wall, and unless it includes very strong border security, there'll be no approvals from me," Trump told Fox News. Any bill would also have to end a visa lottery program and curb visas for legal immigrants' relatives, he added.

A group of Democratic voters asked a federal court on Wednesday to throw out a Republican-drawn map of Ohio's 16 U.S. House of Representatives districts, saying the boundaries were devised to entrench Republicans in power in violation of the voters' constitutional rights. Democratic voters from all of the districts filed suit in Cincinnati against Ohio Governor John Kasich and other Republican state officials over a practice called partisan gerrymandering. The U.S. Supreme Court is due by the end of June to issue major rulings in two partisan gerrymandering cases from Wisconsin and Maryland that could affect the Ohio suit.
