I'm pretty sure the Gang of 8, the lobbyists, White House have had in mind a strategy for this bill or a negotiated version to pass the House. Otherwise it wouldn't make any sense to write a bill that would only have chances to pass the Senate.

The House bill will not be anything like the Senate bill. They will wrangle over it until next spring, then it will be too late because most of the Lawmakers will be gone. It won't work, and they get nothing.

I think the House will pass their version of an immigration bill. Then both parties will have to compromise to come up with a bill that can pass in both houses and get signed. That is the democratic way to do this. There are problems with the Senate bill and I think any bill the House passes may well have problems as well. Right now Obama has kept Congress very divided with his snide snipes at Republicans. But he does not lead, never did.

If this happens the Republicans will lose the majority in the House and then in 2015 Congress is gonna pass a very liberal bill. I think the best time is to do it know when there is a very broad reasonably balanced bipartisan bill.

I would rather the Republicans lost the election then sacrifice their principles. If they have to be more like the Democrats to win we need a third party. One based on the Constitution, and one that does not kill babies, or give amnesty to criminals. The Republicans can't win if they lose all their voters anyway.

Hopefully Republicans won't lose sensibility to ignore this bill of reforms in the house as they will neither steak the forthcoming chance to have elected nor the ambitious of their counterparts in the parliaments who nevertheless are equally political oriented and well wishers of the country.

The house focus is to stick you with a bill that would give business interest all the options to import workers for American high skill jobs and you know why $ while at the same time having you squabbling over low skill Mexicans pathway to citizenship.

Just because the senate rushed their terrible bill through doesn't mean there is any pressure on the House. There is absolutely no pressure to pass any form of amnesty. There is no need to rush anything. The senate rushed it through to keep the American people in the dark but the house won't do that. What we need is a better visa tracking system, an Everify system and more secure southern border - PERIOD. A nice, transparent, readable two page bill would solve this whole problem.

There is no rush ? That means you like the fact that 11 million undocumented live here.

No I don't like the fact that 11 million people are living here illegally, but granting amnesty does nothing to fix that problem. They'll leave with better enforcement but with amnesty they aren't going anywhere. Amnesty rewards lawbreakers and that isn't good for anything.

Err, no... they should get the Hell out. Still 11 million illegal skulking in the shadows is better than those SAME 11 million criminals being rewarded for their lawbreaking, and it's better than them being used as a club by businesses with which to beat the American worker.

What a load of crap! Construction used to be a good-paying job before the illegals and crooked contractors ruined it. As far as picking fruit and vegetables, let the welfare bums do that in return for their benefits. Illegals need to grow a set and fix their own countries.
