House leaders vow to overhaul, replace Senate immigration bill despite Dem pressure
Foxnews ^ | 7/1/2013 | Unknown

House Republicans insisted Sunday that they plan to change key elements of the Senate-passed immigration bill, signaling a protracted and rocky battle ahead despite one Democrat's pronouncement that in the end the House will cave and pass the Senate bill anyway.

Republican Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee who is playing a major role in the chamber's consideration of immigration policy, on Sunday addressed what is perhaps at the heart of the impasse.

He said the House, which is drafting its own plan, cannot agree to a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. Rather, he wants a "pathway to legalization" -- in other words, allow some illegal immigrants a shot at a green card, but not full-fledged citizenship.

Install the Fence.

Shouldn't take more than 10 pages and 2 days to pass a law.

They can even be tough and address the annoying anchor baby atrocity.
Not to worry, they are sure that anchor babies will be protected in the final version.

How about we give some illegals a path to jail for fraudulently collecting America bennifits and give a free ride back over the border to those who did not. I would not be against handing them a “How to apply for a Visa” packet.

There is a path to become a citizen. Hint, it is not illegal.

Indeed, this is what Michelle Bachmann was saying- the conference committee will construct a “trojan horse” bill and then the Senate bill be substituted on a procedural vote and.... voila! it’s done.

Not so fast, House. 5k penalty for not hiring illegals? That ain’t gonna fly.

But doesn’t the full House still have to vote on the bill that comes out of conference?

“House Republicans insisted ...”

Shred all 1500 pages and send them back to the Senate in a box.
Action talks and BS walks.
If they aren’t going to do that, let it gather dust on Weepy’s desk.

To do anything other than steadfastly demanding that existing law be enforced means that they are in the process of getting bribed, and we're in the process of getting scrood.

Exactly.

Why do they feel the need to overhaul or replace it?

We don't have to meet the progressives tit for tat. If it's a stupid idea, just say "no", not "us too".

An ounce of prevent is worth a pound of cure. Except there will be no cure if this is passed.

Dump Boehner NOW. Don’t wait for this devious jackass to complete his treachery.

Exactly. Any House version will be altered in the conference committee between House and Senate and will come back to the House with a Trojan Horse hiding amnesty and legalization clauses that will be voted by all dems in the House and about 18 traitorous republicans.

No goddamned "immigration" bill out of the GOP controlled House or all bets are off.

These blue blood country club MF's "Republicans" who want to help the communist democrats declare war on the middle class by legalizing criminals and depressing wages are playing with fire.

They are counting that in 2014 their constituents are too stupid to remember how they were screwed over this year.

“Rather, he wants a “pathway to legalization” — in other words, allow some illegal immigrants a shot at a green card, but not full-fledged citizenship.”

Same turd, different day. This lets them get a foot in the door for future legalization. I can hear the wales of the liberals of the future.

Or maybe it’s a way to introduce two official classes of Americans; patricians and plebs.

And before the ink is wet the Rats will be whining because it’s not fair to have workers who contribute so much as second class citizens. The Rats will never go for it.

The president must be threatened, personally brought to account, for his failure.

The threat must be so substantial that it causes pain so intense that the desired border closing occurs immediately.

Absent that, there is no need for action
