” conservatives for amnesty ads”
The “big money/cheap labor thugs are pulling out all the ammo.
That explains a lot.
says most House Republicans would support a comprehensive bill that is considerably more robust in its trigger structure and enforcement provisions.

Itching to go and sell us out.
But when I asked him about his colleagues who fear that the outcome of a conference committee would be amnesty for illegal immigrants, he was frank: They have a point, even if he disagrees with where theyre coming from.
IOW they are right about the conference committee, but they just don't fit in with the new Obama-friendly GOP.
Theyre legitimate complaints from their point of view, Simpson says. And I dont know how youre going to do an immigration bill that doesnt [somehow] deal with the 11 or 12 million who are here. Thats going to be a part of any final deal. And thats what stops them from wanting to go to conference, because theyre afraid that will be in any conference report. But I dont know how you do immigration without doing that, he adds.

Keep writing Boehner and Cantor and your rep until they decide, it's the only thing that has keep this from becoming law.
