Posted on 05/23/2013 1:19:55 PM PDT by Brad from Tennessee
House Republicans vowed Thursday to have their own say in the debate over immigration reform, two days after a Senate committee gave approval to a sweeping border control bill.
GOP leaders said in a statement that the House will not simply take up and accept the bill that is emerging in the Senate if it passes. The House will work its will and produce its own legislation. Speaker John Boehner (Ohio), Majority Leader Eric Cantor (Va.) and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) issued the statement along with Conference Chairman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (Wash.) and Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (Va.).
The declaration represented a warning to Senate Democrats that they can expect a tough negotiation with the House even if both chambers produce immigration bills. Goodlatte, a staunch conservative, has begun holding hearings on smaller-scale immigration proposals, while a bipartisan group of eight House members continues private negotiations on its own comprehensive bill that is reportedly more conservative than the Senate plan. . .

Fix the border and wait 10 years to see what happens.
I just don’t understand why we owe illegals anything?
Why is Congress pushing forward with this?
Where is the money coming from?
The housing for the tens of millions who will flood this nation?
The hospitals needed to deliver more welfare sucking spawn?
Where is more law enforcement coming to deal with the drivers who refuse to learn English- therefore unable to understand traffic laws- and the drunk drivers who drive uninsured cars?
Why in the almight HELL do we need more people here when there are not enough jobs or opportunities for the LEGAL AMERICANS WHO ARE ALREADY HERE????????!!!!!!!!!!!!
Start arresting and jailing employers who hire illegals. Wait one year and see what happens.
The powers that be want cheap labor. Simple as that.
It’s just ObamaCare renamed ObamaGration
It’s about naturalizing 20 million Mexicans and registering them as Democrats.
Now that makes sense.
While we seal the border , start enforcing the law we already have.
get rid of Napolitano.
Need to send that to Rush.
“House Republicans vowed Thursday to have their own say in the debate over immigration reform, two days after a Senate committee gave approval to a sweeping border control bill. “
“Border Control” my a**.
Yeah, the warning is, citizens are public enemy number one.
"start enforcing the law we already have."
"get rid of Napolitano"
I'm down with those comprehensive reforms.
The House’s response should be a single bill that simply builds a fence.
It is about time the House Reps put an end to this farce in the Senate. If the House Reps don’t stop this amnesty, there is no point in having them in charge of the House. We should send them that message.
It’s not ‘just’ the cheap labor. The ruling-class politicians want a more ‘compliant’ electorate, full of foreign-born subjects who grew up in and harbor a socialist worldview... and have no real concept of American freedoms and liberty. A way to dilute the voting power of the patriotic, tea-party/Constitutionalists, who keep gumming up and interfering with their big-government agenda.
The second should be tough penalties against anyone caught hiring an illegal. Then third, start a REAL screening process for weeding out the criminals, welfare riders, and diseased individuals. Ulike the current Obama-created rubber stamp defacto amnesty plan where 99.2% of applicants are immediately approved.
“Why is Congress pushing forward with this?”
The cabal of moneyed political elites want cheap labor and a permanent political constituency.
This is why I laugh my ass off when I hear any politician talking about “protecting the middle class”.
No, they want a loyal voting block. IN this crappy economy there aren’t many low end jobs either.
