China doesn't want to lend us any more. Obama keeps printing more, so the dollar is worth half as much.

The House has a good idea, allow local and state police to enforce immigration law. Any bill must include a national E-Verify law and jail time for employers. Don't forget the Birthright Citizenship Act.

When the republicans take the Senate in Nov, they will be able to pass the BCA.

"The Birthright Citizenship Act, H.R. 140, would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act - not the constitution - to consider a person born in the United States "subject to the jurisdiction" of the United States for citizenship at birth purposes if the person is born in the United States of parents, one of whom is:(1) a U.S. citizen or national; (2) a lawful permanent resident alien whose residence is in the United States; or (3) an alien performing active service in the U.S. Armed Forces."

The House will never pass anything on amnesty. Big reason is because they can't trust Obama. Any law that has any enforcement in it will be put a side just like the laws on the books now that are not being enforced. We are still waiting for the enforcement in the 1986 amnesty to happen.

When the republicans take the Senate, because of Obamacare, they can pass the BCA in both Houses. Then illegal aliens won't be born US citizens anymore.

The republicans are just stringing along illegal alien knucklehead supporters, they will chase after any table scraps. Giving them hope where there is none to keep them at bay. Any bill has no enforcement as long as Obama and Holder are in office.

Once this amnesty bill dies there won't be another next year, not with a republican held Senate.
