“The House may begin consideration of the border security measures that have been passed by the Homeland Security and Judiciary Committees and begin reviewing other immigration proposals, Mr. Cantor wrote, noting that Republicans will hold an internal conference on the issue on July 10th.”
what’s wrong with this??? best thing the House could do is rip apart the Senate bill, showing what a fraud it is and comparing it to the disaster that is obamacare....if the Congress comes out with a dynamite border security plan they can stick it to obama and the rest of the demoKrats- never mind mclame and the GOPe....
You Don’ t understand the process. Any immigration bill the house passes goes to conference where the senate replaces it with their version and we are SCREWED!
The only way to kill the Senate version is to refuse to take up ANY immigration legislation.
The best thing the House could do is consider no immigration bill at all. Any bill passed would have to be conferenced with the Senate bill and given the known Republican tendency to grovel at the feet of Democrats, we'd lose not only border security, but the country as well.
In my opinion the wrongness lies in my belief that immigration reform is not needed, but rather existing laws need to be enforced.
If the House passes an immigration reform bill, even loaded with border security provisions, all bets are off when the House and Senate take up the two bills in conference committee. Case in point, ObamaCare. Another factor, Amnesty proponents only need 18 GOP members to join with the Rats to pass something similar to the Senate bill. No House action at all is the only sure way to kill Amnesty.
It’s a bad things because both bills go to a conference committee made of House and Senate members that works out any differences between the versions. The House version would almost certainly be gutted. Then the consolidated bill goes back to the House and Senate for final approval by simple majorities. In the House, that means all Democrats and a handful of Republican traitors pass the bill.
No—if the House comes out with a dynamite border plan, leadership will send it to reconciliation with the Senate plan, the Senate plan will be instituted—and the GOP cowards will have passed the Senate amnesty while claiming all the time that they didn’t.
It will go to conference and be watered down and eviscerated to the point of being as big a crap sandwich as the Senate bill.
