The House Reaches ‘Tentative Deal’ On Amnesty

From Reuters:

House lawmakers reach tentative deal to revamp immigration

By Richard Cowan and Rachelle Younglai | Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Prospects for passage of a major immigration bill improved on Thursday when a bipartisan group of lawmakers in the House of Representatives declared they had reached a tentative deal, resolving disputes that had threatened to torpedo negotiations.

The breakthrough came at the end of a two-hour private meeting of seven Republican and Democratic negotiators. The eighth negotiator in this so-called House Gang of Eight was unavailable after undergoing surgery on Wednesday.

The final sticking point, according to congressional sources, was over whether illegal immigrants now in the United States who gain legal status under the bill could participate in the new healthcare law known as "Obamacare," which Republicans want to repeal…

Which is laughable. How will anyone be able to deny any ‘legal’ American ‘the right ‘to Obama-Care? The courts will never allow it.

None of the negotiators would comment on how the matter was resolved. Nor would they provide other details of the deal.

Even with Thursday’s breakthrough, the drive to enact a comprehensive immigration bill, which is President Barack Obama’s top legislative priority, faces a long, difficult road in Congress.

Especially, if the American public ever finds out how they are being sold out.

The agreement still must be drafted into legislation for review by the 435 members of the House. Then it faces a potentially tough battle in the House Judiciary Committee, where several conservative Republicans have been dead-set against a comprehensive bill. Instead, they mostly want to pass tougher border security measures and allow U.S. companies to get better access to foreign high-tech workers.

‘Comprehensive bill" means amnesty. You see, no one can ‘come out of the shadows’ without being given full citizenship.

Any proposal to provide a path to citizenship for 11 million people now in the United States illegally, which is part of a Senate bill, is certain to draw fierce opposition from some Republican quarters.

And the vast majority of Americans. If they ever hear about it.

Furthermore, the House bill will not fully conform to the measure winding its way through the Democratic-controlled Senate.

"There are going to be a lot of differences in a lot of areas" between the House and Senate bills, said Republican Representative Mario Diaz-Balart of Florida, one of the House negotiators…

Yes, under the harsh House bill illegal aliens will have to wait an extra day longer to vote. In any case, it looks like the fix is in, unless the American people let their feelings be known.

    This will NEVER pass the House, which has been Obama’s plan all along.

    The “boy wonder” Sen. Rubio and the other three “useful idiot’ republicans just can’t seem to see that this is an obvious ploy by O bama and the demoncrats. It has been stated here and many other places that they want this bill to pass the Senate and to die in the House so the issue can be used against republicans in the mid-terms.

    Even an ole redneck like me can see that!

    I would lke to point out that these growing scandals, especially the IRS and Benghazi cover-ups, will make the dreams of the demoncrats retaking the House nill and void unless I have totally misread my fellow americans. But on the other hand, I never believed Obama could be re-elected. If not for the suppression by the IRS of conservative groups he probably never would have been becuase he didn’t even receive as many votes in 2012 as 2008. But Romney didn’t get as many votes as McCain and now we know why!

      I would also like for everyone to please call any and all members of congress and raise hell about this and any other subject.

      Here is the Toll Free telephone number for the Congrssional Switchboard:

      (877) 762-8762

      Call and ask for ANY member of congress and give them an ear full.

      I’ve had this number since last time this legislation came up.

      We stopped them then!

      We can stop them this time!

  2. I’m reminded of Republican Sins, most notably the Medicare Prescription Bill which has already surpassed the $1 Trillion estimate sold to the American citizen, the press and both Houses of Congress.

    A purely REPUBLICAN BIll … designed and executed specifically to win GWB electoral votes for a second term. Any number of Republican members of the House have spoken with vigor and animosity of the extreme pressure – the most extreme of their time in office – they suffered through to insure this travesty would pass … specifically to garner GWB the necessary electoral votes to win a second term.

    One Trillion dollars of your money siphoned out of your pockets so a sitting Republican could win a second term. Your money … one trillion dollars … to benefit one man who was a Party loyalist.

    One Trillion Dollars

    All Republican …. let me say that again …. All Republican

    Who now have the bit in their teeth to (bad word implying sexual congress) us over even more profoundly. To their own ends. For their own purposes.

    Denounce This Hideous Travesty Loudly and with Acrimony.

      I remember Rush Limbaugh being against it. That bill and their attempt at amnesty the first time is why the republicans lost the House in 2006.

      They lost their way for one man.

      Political Party’s are dangerous. People think of what will help the Party and themselves first and the country come second.
