"The House should “fold it up into a paper airplane and throw it out the window. Oh, is that not the right answer?” jokes Representative Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina.“The Senate is, at this point, irrelevant,” observes Representative Ted Poe of Texas, the chairman of the House immigration caucus."

If by any chance this mess get's passed, the vetting begins. That's finding them, making them accountable, making them pay their bills and doing background check's.... Loud and Clear..... BACKGROUND checks. We know what that will mean, do we not? Hundreds, thousands will never come out. Never.... They don't want to be American nor do they honor this Country in any meaningful way. They simply will not apply. The ones that do will have to meet hard requirement's, that South Americans are not willing to go through. Asians on the other hand, if they haven't committed crimes, will be invited to stay. Not all but many. Having said this, the house will not pass this bill.

Maybe that is the opinion of about 1/3 of the house members. Put that same bill to a vote on floor as is i bet it will pass that is why the speaker is very reluctant in doing so by claiming he needs the majority of the majority to do so, one thing to note here is that, that majority of the majority he is speaking of is of course the minority and the will of that minority in congress should not stand in the way of moving forward let the full house vote on the bill.

Yeah and lets see how many of these southern states actually use the 30 billion for the boarder security and don't squander it on other things.
