Can Congress pass reform, immigration?

The insight of Kevin McCullough, radio talk show host for Salem media, and Doug Schoen, former pollster for former President Bill Clinton.

A sprawling, compromise GOP-immigration law that would support a path to citizenship for young illegal immigrants, directing $25 billion for the construction of President Trump border wall was not in the house on Wednesday, despite encouragement from the President for the Republicans.

The bill was overwhelmingly rejected 301-121, in part because some Republicans are reluctant to vote for any bill, which they worry could be represented as “Amnesty.”

More than 100 Republicans voted against the legislation.

Earlier on Wednesday, as the President for the Republicans by the “strong but fair immigration bill,” said that “passage to show that we want strong borders and security, while the Dems want open borders.”

HOUSE REPUBLICANS SHOULD PASS THE STRONG BUT FAIR IMMIGRATION BILL, KNOWN AS the GOODLATTE II, IN THE AFTERNOON to Decide TODAY is, EVEN IF THE DEMS T LET IT PASS IN THE SENATE WON. PASSAGE SHOW THAT WE WANT STRONG BORDERS AND SECURITY, WHILE THE DEMS OPEN BORDERS = CRIME WANT. WIN!

After months of attempts to bridge the gap between moderates and conservatives, and two votes, the speaker of the house of representatives Paul Ryan, R-Wis moved., with the name of the legislation is “a great consensus bill,” and tried putting the best face on the likely outcome.

“What we have here is come of the seed of the consensus, now, hopefully, but if not, later,” he told reporters on Tuesday.

But on Friday, Trump first hit he gave up the attempt to get a bill approved before the election, to say that a “red wave” will be required to passing an immigration bill in Congress.

“Republicans should stop wasting your time on immigration, only then, if we choose, more senators and congressmen/women in November, the” Trump tweeted. “Dems are not the only games that have the intention to do something, this decades solves old problem. We have great legislation to the Red wave can happen!”

On Wednesday votes months caps of futile GOP efforts to pass far-reaching legislation on a subject that could be the colour of the congressional races this fall made the competition for the house and maybe the Senate control. The Senate rejected the three proposals in February, including a reflective Trump the hard-line policies, and two cross-party plans.

The Republican compromise agreed to on Wednesday would have a Chance at citizenship for hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought illegally to the U.S. as children. It would be $25 billion for Trumpf builds its coveted wall with Mexico, limiting family-based immigration, and a bar the Homeland Security Department, the migrants from taking children from the parents seized crossing into the country without permission.

The leaders had the votes already to win more in the eleventh hour, measures. It would make it easier for migrant rural workers to stay longer in the country, the other would require companies to verify that the use of an electronic database, their employees and American citizenship.

But these changes do not remove the key stumbling block — the reluctance of the conservatives back legislation in support of people who arrived illegally to the citizens. Many Republicans scoff at this plan your next primary Challenger could come up with as Amnesty for law-breakers, a possible line of attack against you.
