This is not a new issue as it's been discussed for years so the House shouldn't spend a lot of time on it.

Republicans playing games with people's minds and lives. Very INHUMANE and CRUEL!!! They keep stalling everything in blatant disrespect to the Ruling party. This is so disgusting, actually it stinks. Would you believe these are the people who want people to vote them back in to power. Throw away your rocky hearts and try putting on the shoes others are forced to wear.

They are doing what they do best. Drag their feet senselessly on everything in the name of serving the public but it's all about scheming against the administration to hold everything at a standstill and punish the vulnerable. The nation is tired if the nonsense.

Passing that bill would punish the vulnerable.
The millions of Americans that have exhausted their unemployment benefits, those that have to rely on welfare and food stamps just to feed their families.

Deport the illegals, put Americans back to work.

We don't need a new immigration bill.

We have immigration laws that are equitable, just, and work well... if they are enforced.

That's all we need.... enforcement.

Detain, deport, illegals.

Arrest, convict, and imprison those that aid, abet and employ illegals.

Simple, effective, and easy.
