    House immigration bill’s co-author, Mario Diaz-Bala says debate could get ‘ugly’

    House immigration bill’s co-author says debate could get ‘ugly’

    A co-author of a bipartisan House immigration proposal is predicting a tough road ahead for the legislation, but he said on Friday that ultimately a compromise will "prevail."
    Florida Republican Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart said the process of negotiating a comprehensive immigration bill in the House could get "ugly" before a final bill passes. Diaz-Balart is part of the House's "Gang of Seven," a bipartisan working group that plans to unveil a version of an immigration overhaul they think can pass in the lower chamber.
    “You're going to see ups and downs. You're going to see ugly things. You're going to see things that we don't like," Diaz-Balart said in an interview on Bloomberg's "Political Capital with Al Hunt" program. "Ultimately, however, I'm optimistic that the vast majority of the members in the House and the Senate, and the country, more importantly, recognize that we have a system that doesn't work and ultimately, when push comes to shove, in order to pass legislation, I think it's going to have to be something similar to what we've been working on. Ultimately, I think what will prevail is the desire to fix a system that everybody recognizes is broken.”
    Members of the House immigration working group have declined to offer details about their bill, but Rep. Zoe Lofgren, a California Democrat who is part of the closed-door discussions, said on Friday that the group is "at the end of the process" and will introduce a proposal soon.
    The Senate on Thursday passed its own version of an immigration bill, which combines enhanced border security measures with a pathway to legality for immigrants currently living in the United States illegally. House Republican leaders have said they do not plan to hold a vote on the Senate legislation. In an interview with Yahoo News on Thursday, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said the House will move "deliberately" on immigration.

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    recognize that we have a system that doesn't work
    Because nobody enforces the laws on the books. The laws on the books have been ignored so long..they have become forgotten. Most likely the same thing will happen to any new laws in this amnesty bill id passed and in a few years we will be right back were we are now only in a country we will not recognize anymore.

    The part of the immigration, citizenship, and nationality system that is broken and doesn't work will not be fixed by changing the immigration laws. New immigration laws will just be selectively enforced, and those new immigration laws the Executive Branch doesn't like will just be selectively ignored.

    The only new law that makes any sense is dire and grievous punishment for not enforcing the laws.

    In the case of an illegal alien who murders or kills while DUI, the top government official bearing responsibility for the illegal presence of that illegal alien shall pay in kind: an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, suffering for suffering, pain for pain, a life for a life. In the case of an illegal alien who steals, the top government official responsible for the illegal presence of that illegal alien shall pay in kind fourfold: the official shall make fourfold restitution to the victim of the theft, in addition to any other fine or imprisonment required by the state.

    One man's terrorist is another man's undocumented worker.

    Unless we enforce laws against illegal aliens today,
    tomorrow WE may wake up as illegals.

    The last word: illegal aliens are ILLEGAL!
