scalise house immigration bill

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.

8 Comments on House Moving On “Four Pillar” Bill to Protect Americans, Call Dems’ DACA Bluff

  1. I have read that the Goodlatte bill (HR4760)contains(Buried)in the 400-page legislation is the new mandatory national identification system in which citizens would be required to carry a government-approved ID containing “biometric features.” Anyone know if this is true?

  2. It’s safe to bet the Dem’s will eliminate the filibuster rule on day one if they take back the majority in the Senate. Why does McConnell insist on pussy-footing with it?

    • Let me hazard a guess, David, because that’s what his establishment uniparty masters are telling him to do? And I agree, they’ll eliminate the filibuster, at least partially. But as we both know, McConnell is not about getting results, he’s about keeping things as they are and that means not getting anything done, especially things that would conflict with the establishment.

      • Yep, I believe you are correct, Rick. McConnell is not about getting results.

        I’m beginning to believe the Chamber of Commerce is the “Head” leading the establishment on behalf of the CFR. And, I think they have more influence over all of our governance than we give them credit for. Do we need to kill the CoC?

        • yep, if you remember the debate over TPP, the smart ass running the Coc was guaranteeing it would pass, other instances as well. They own the establishment, CFR the media propagandists – Congress gets nothing without fighting for it and many don’t have any interest in doing that or are paid not to.

    McConnell will most likely NOT remove the filibuster rule because then he can’t blame the Ds for dong what he is doing. It will be interesting to see if the “wall” is fully funded and if it actually gets built. The chain migration is still in place for quite some time, and the diversity lottery is also being kept in some form. 800 DACA has risen to 2 million DACA, and once one is legalized, all 40+ million will raise judicial issue for equal treatment. Illegals demanding and American citizens told to cram it.

    For me, I will feel betrayed, Trump does not keep his word, and I believe he got what he wanted, “president” on his resume.

    if this Bill passes the HOUSE? IT WILL DIE IN THE SENATE.
    WATCH AND SEE.

    • That’s why I included the narrative at the bottom, because that is very likely what will happen, James. Don’t know if you read it that far down but that is what typically happens.
