House Republicans are moving forward on an immigration bill crafted by Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), Homeland Security Chairman Mike McCaul (R-TX), and Reps Raul Labrador (R-ID) and Martha McSally (R-AZ).
Speaker Ryan promised the House Freedom Caucus he would bring the measure to the floor if it garnered enough votes for passage and that process was underway Wednesday as votes were being whipped.
Border Security and putting the interests of American citizens first are the bulk of the legislation, with an accommodation made in the form of citizenship for the DACA illegal aliens as a measure to acquire necessary Democrat support in the Senate.
It also ends the damaging practice of chain migration, which essentially bases future immigration on the relationship to current immigrants, removing the government in large part from the qualification determination and acceptance decision-making process.
It also includes funding for the American peoples backyard fence, the border wall between the US and Mexico, and eliminates sanctuary cities and states, as well as ending the visa lottery of random qualification for citizenship.
Rep Steve Scalise, the House Majority Whip, said on Wednesday, “The Goodlatte-McCaul bill is a bill that we are whipping today — asking our members to support this bill that addresses those pressing issues. It puts money in place to build the wall and makes sure that we have both border security and interior security. And again, both Chairmen Goodlatte and McCaul worked very hard with a cross-section of our members to put together a bill that confronts those issues.”
In a Wednesday statement, President Trump said, “I remain encouraged by developments in the House toward advancing legislation from Chairmen Goodlatte and McCaul that also enshrines our four pillars.” Trump said in a statement Wednesday.
He urged Senators in that largely dysfunctional body to support the bill offered by Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) which is similar in many regards to the Goodlatte bill.
If Democrats refuse to go along with protecting America, it may be time to eliminate their filibuster rule on issues of national security. They’ve held us hostage to their socialist demands long enough.
President Trump has indicated he favors eliminating that provision from the Senate rules as the Senate has deteriorated into a failed deliberative body that is almost incapable of taking action.
