    House GOP leaders will whip conservative immigration bill

    House GOP leaders will whip conservative immigration bill

    February 13, 2018

    Scott Wong

    House GOP leaders on Wednesday will whip a conservative immigration bill authored by Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), GOP sources told The Hill.

    Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) made the call Tuesday afternoon. And Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) informed his whip team of the development during a meeting Tuesday evening, according to a source in the room.

    The vote-counting effort fulfills a promise Ryan made to conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus, but there’s no guarantee the bill can secure enough votes to come to the floor.
    Last month, the Speaker vowed that he’d only bring up the Goodlatte bill for a vote if it had the support of 218 Republicans — an extremely high bar. In exchange, Freedom Caucus members agreed to back a funding bill to avert a government shutdown.
    The Goodlatte bill is more conservative than proposals being considered in the Senate, as well as President Trump’s own immigration framework.

    The House bill calls for a path to legal status — not citizenship — for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who took part in the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

    The legislation also authorizes funding for Trump’s border wall, ends family-based migration and scraps the diversity visa lottery program.

    It also includes tougher border-enforcement measures: The bill would crack down on sanctuary cities, boost penalties for deported criminals who try to re-enter the U.S. and requires that employers use an electronic verification system known as E-Verify to make sure they hire legal workers.

    Goodlatte said Tuesday evening that GOP leaders will whip lawmakers on a modified version of his immigration measure this week.

    The bulk of the changes, according to a summary provided to The Hill, were made to appease the agricultural industry's concerns over the guest worker program that is established by the legislation.

    The tweaks include giving farmers and agricultural employers more time to prepare for the new E-Verify requirements and extending the standard visa term from 18 months to 24 months.

    The new version also makes intentionally overstaying a visa for more than 90 days a misdemeanor only for those who enter the country after the law is enacted and eliminates a provision that would have required states to be reimbursed for deploying the National Guard at the southern border.

    The House whip efforts come as the Senate debates how to provide protections for the 700,000 DACA recipients. Trump has unilaterally rescinded the program and has given Congress until March 5 to find a permanent solution for these immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children, typically referred to as "Dreamers."

    MW, I have been meaning to thank you on the other thread when you said that you had a difficult time reading some posts and that you go on without reading. I felt bad for I had no idea. I usually see the writing on posts about the same size as the comment writing of others. Then you gave me the size 3 that you use for posts. I did not know how the stories looked to others on their computers when I posted. I thought it posted a general size. Sometimes the tweets that I post are tiny so I up the size.

    I am sorry that you and others have had a difficult time reading the posts, I just did not know. You and others will need to remind me again no doubt. Please do as I want it to be the best for everyone to see and read.

    It is nice to help one another. Someone may not know how to do something or to change it. Judy helped me to activate my links when I was wondering why they stayed dark and would not work. Others here have been most helpful, too.

    Yep, I do skip over some of the longer articles when they're in small print. So much to read and so little time. The small print articles really slow me down and force these 59 year old eyes to strain. It's all good though. Thank you for helping out.

    I hope this suggestion will help others. I usually copy and paste the text into Google Translate to have it read the text for me audibly. Google Translate has a very good text-to-speech application. All you have to do is copy the news article into the textbox and click on the speaker icon at the bottom.

    When anyone copies text from a news source and paste it into the ALIPAC textbox, the textbox will also keep the original formatting such as font, bold, and color. One way to make sure that news articles are at the proper text size is by first copy & pasting the article into Windows' Notepad. Notepad is a very simple text editor and does not have the ability to remember the text format. You can then copy the text from Notepad into ALIPAC's textbox. Just a suggestion.
