LOL. Everyone but you knows the bills are dead in the water. It would be a complete waste of time to call for a vote in the Senate. You really need to study how things work in Congress.
The Republicans were desperate to have some recorded proof that they tried to address the "crisis" even if it meant agreeing to revisions offered by tea party members. As Michele Bachmann said, Rep. Steve King (a vocal opponent of Obama's immigration plan) "completely gutted the(original) bill". That is reason enough to scuttle the bills.
Heck, the House authorized only $694 million in additional funding for federal agencies dealing with the influx of immigrants. This after approving $225 million in emergency funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system the same day. It's a joke.
"Bishop Eusebio Elizondo of Seattle, who leads the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ work on immigration issues, called passage of the legislation “a low point for our country. It eviscerates American values of justice and due process and stains our record as a defender of human rights globally.”
You have inside info that those bills would fail in the senate? If that is so the senate leader, hiarless reed should want a vote. He refuses to allow the senate to do their job and vote on bills passed by the house. Could it be he is afraid that some of the bills would pass thus pissing off the boy president who would have to veto them. For crying out loud the boy is thinking of using the power of his pen executive privilege to give amnesty to what 100000 illegals. The key word is illegals, those folks are here illegally. They have no right to be here.
