Skip to comments.Sen. Schumer: Immigration bill to pass Senate by July 4
Posted on 06/10/2013 9:28:35 AM PDT by xzins
A lawmaker who helped negotiate a bipartisan bill to overhaul immigration predicted on Sunday that comprehensive legislation would overwhelmingly pass the Senate by July 4 while House Republicans cautioned that they would write their own version, one piece at a time.
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said he anticipates as many as 70 of the 100 senators will vote for the measure heading to the full Senate on June 10.
Not so fast, House lawmakers cautioned.
"That Senate bill is not going to move in the House," said Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla.
House lawmakers, though, have pledged to put together their own measure - likely taking components of the comprehensive Senate plan one at a time and adding their own priorities.
"We think it's better to do it with a step-by-step approach," said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va.

Guess one should start a CW-II pool countdown matrix.
We The People think it better to forget the whole bad idea and simply enforce existing law without suing states such as Arizona who are attempting to do so.
Let’s take note of the RINOs that vote for this. Can anyone say “primary”?
Just fired off the following Emails to Chambliss and Isakson. Urge you to let yours hear from you. Vote coming soon.
My 5th great grandfather, John Carpenter, came here from England in the mid 1700s, became George Washington’s neighbor, fought at his side in the French and Indian Wars and the Revolution. That was, of course, before we had laws dealing with immigration.
My more recent ancestors came here LEGALLY from Germany and England, went through the procedures set forth for citizenship to become proud Americans.
What little remains of “American culture” is being destroyed by the virtually unrestrained influx of ILLEGALS from all parts of the world.
IT’S TIME IT STOPPED!! NO AMNESTY!!!!!
And if you and the other Republicans think these folks will support the GOP, think again. Thanks to the Democrat “freebies”, nearly all of them will vote Democrat — FOREVER!!!
Washington, D.C. May 27, 2007. An immigration "reform" deal has been drafted and the gang of guffawing goofballs gather to announce their guile sure that they found a way to put one over on us. They were wrong.
Today another gang of guffawing goofballs
.. what is it about immigration "reform" that's so jolly?
"The public believes that except for giving the millions and their families amnesty we will enforce the law.. bwahaha!"
Whether one likes Rubio or not, Rubio himself is saying this bill is flawed.
What would possess a republican senator to support this when their own point guy has come out against it?
The bottom line: there is ZERO border enforcement. It’s all smoke and mirrors and lies.
Hey Chuck, you suck.
Boner has already said that Amnesty will pass the House before the Summer recess. The fix is in.
Do you have a link? I have friends and relatives in his district I’d like to send it to. Thanks.
Let us prove him wrong.
Lets see, Rand says he against THIS particular bill, and Rubio is temporarily saying the same(says the bill still needs improvement), and for some reason NH Sen Kelly Ayotte has jumped ahead of both of them and joined Mccain and Grahamnesty in supporting any piece of crap called ‘immigration reform’ that Reid puts up
Very wrong to do this when the bill is like another Obamacare. We don’t know what all is in the 1000’s of pages of this bill; a Schumer bill. They are flaunting their takeover so arrogantly. Rubio, Graham and McCain are behaving so badly. Maybe the leaker can tell us what’s already decided and alike for the 3 rulings coming down from the high court this summer.
Rubio would say that regardless of his actual belief because he knows the Category 5 s**tstorm he has raised with the base.
My prediction: Rubio will with his fellow cabal members when it's time to vote.
I couldn't agree with you more regarding border enforcement, though. However, as others have correctly noted, the real damage in this bill is in the amnesty it provides.
Just remember, incrementalism gets the job done.
Actually I think it will kill the whole effort.
No way will Senate Dems support guest workers and enforcement unless citizenship is included.
Citizenship and added benefits (like tuition aid Pelts) are the only part that they want.
Along with desensitization and bullying.
congress critters and the k street pay to play gang will find a way.
Rubio is a charlatan. He’s trying to save face on HIS bill that HE worked on in secret with Schumer and the other rats! Have you heard of those disgusting Pro-amnesty radio ads where Rubio is lying about the benifits of it?
