    House Speaker Paul Ryan Delays Amnesty Vote Until Friday

    House Speaker Paul Ryan Delays Amnesty Vote Until Friday




    June 21, 2018

    Neil Munro

    House Speaker is delaying the vote on his amnesty bill from Thursday to Friday, amid growing evidence that Ryan’s amnesty bill will lose because tens of GOP legislators prefer the bill drafted by Virginia Rep. Bob Goodlatte.


    IMMIGRATION COMPROMISE VOTE POSTPONED UNTIL FRIDAY, @GOPLeader tells @AlexNBCNews
    — Kasie Hunt (@kasie) June 21, 2018


    The delay is also caused by confusion over changes to the bill. That confusion sparked a heated row Wednesday between Ryan and Rep. Mark Meadows, a leader of the House Freedom Caucus.


    The confusion is exacerbated by the leaders’ effort to rename Ryan’s bill as second Goodlatte bill. The Goodlatte bill is better-liked by conservatives because it provide a small amnesty and more extensive changes to chain-migration numbers. “Goodlatte 1 and Goodlatte 2 is what they are calling it now,” Rep. Mike Kelly told Breitbart News June 21.

    But both bills provide amnesties to illegal migrants.

    The vote on final passage of a compromise immigration bill is being moved to Friday to provide more time to answer members' questions about the bill, a GOP aide confirmed

    Also, the leadership used the fight over the border policy and family detention to distract members from the contents of Ryan’s bill. Members are now asking for more time to check the contents.

    Members were supposed to vote on this in a couple hours…..now leadership is going to brief them on what's in the bill.

    To be clear: This bill proposes SWEEPING changes to the legal and illegal immigration system. Probably good to know what's in it. https://t.co/JfVf9v8SNW

    One major difference is the number of migrants that would be imported via the two rival bills.

    Several business groups are opposing both bills because the business groups want government to stimulate the economy with a huge wave of legal immigrant workers, customers, and renters each year. The core economic impact of both bills is largely ignoredby media outlets.

    Colleague Mike Emanuel rpts Hse GOP mtg will give mbrs chance to ask whatever they want about compromise bill. GOPers still not optimistic that bill will pass. But delaying it a day could buy them time

    Conservative immigration bill failed but got 193 yeas. Thought it may get 165. But 193 is not far from 215 (the magic nmbr these days). Should GOP ldrs have spent more time trying to massage conservative bill rather than mollify moderates with the compromise bill?

    Issue in compromise immigration bill is path to citizenship for DACA population. Conservative bill did not grant a pathway. Compromise bill paid for border wall. Conservative bill didn't directly do so. Ergo, GOPers more worried about voting for "amnesty" than ok'ing border wall.

    Sums up the economic stimulus argument.
