Republicans have reached a deal to vote on two immigration bills next week, setting the stage for a high-stakes floor showdown over the fate of millions of illegal immigrants.
House Republicans will hash out the options at a closed-door meeting Wednesday morning, said AshLee Strong, Mr. Ryan’s spokeswoman. The mere act of scheduling votes is symbolically huge. It will be the first time since Republicans retook control of the chamber in 2010 that they have put a major legalization bill on the floor. But the fact that two bills will be put on the floor suggests there is still no unanimity within the party on how far to go on the legalization of “Dreamers,” nor on how to stiffen border security and interior enforcement to prevent another wave of unauthorized migration.
The announcement did, however, defuse a petition drive backed by rebel Republicans and Democrats that had threatened to sideline Republican leaders and turn control of the issue over to the minority. “Members across the Republican Conference have negotiated directly and in good faith with each other for several weeks, and as a result, the House will consider two bills next week that will avert the discharge petition and resolve the border security and immigration issues,” Ms. Strong said.
Now we are going to have to see if these bills will put Immigrants first and Americans last or that we will get massive border security in exchange for Illegal Aliens to get green cards.
