    House defeats one GOP immigration bill, delays vote on second plan

    • House defeats one GOP immigration bill, delays vote on second plan

    Struggling to find consensus on immigration reform, the House on Thursday rejected a more conservative Republican immigration reform bill, and then in a bid to salvage the effort, GOP leaders delayed action on a second immigration reform measure until Friday.

    41 House Republicans voted against the first GOP bill, which was defeated on a vote of 231-193, as the plan received more votes than most GOP lawmakers had expected.
    The Republicans who voted against the first GOP bill were a mixture of the Republican Party’s different flanks, featuring more conservative lawmakers who wanted to do more, and moderates who felt it went too far.

    “This is a difficult issue,” said Rep. Mark Walker (R-NC), who voted for this bill, but wouldn’t tell reporters whether he would support a second measure on Friday.

    “Any jot or tittle one way or the other, you lose people because of the complexities, because of the sensitivities, and the emotions in this particular piece of legislation,” Meadows said.

    Here is the list of the 41 Republicans who voted “No.”

    One of the reasons more moderate Republicans voted against the first bill was because of the lack of a path to citizenship for younger illegal immigrant “Dreamers,” who were brought to the U.S. by their parents.

    While that is in the bill to be voted on Friday, those provisions then could cause some other Republicans to vote against it, arguing it is nothing but amnesty.

    “I’m a big fat no, capital letters” said Rep. Lou Barletta (R-PA), after the first vote. “It doesn’t do anything to stop illegal immigration.”

    But other Republicans urged GOP lawmakers to compromise, and come together.

    “Doing nothing should not be an option,” said Rep. Mike McCaul (R-TX). “Today, we have a historic opportunity to fix this problem, once and for all.”

    1:15 PM - Jun 21, 2018

    In debate on the House floor, Democrats focused mainly on the more recent immigration battle over the separation of illegal immigrant families, blaming President Donald Trump for doing little to seek compromise.

    “On this issue, God is going to judge you as well,” said Rep. Michael Capuano (D-MA) said to Republicans who were backing the President’s get-tough effort on the border.

    “The bills we have before us today are a disgrace,” said Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY).

    Trump should sign an Executive Order to stop this surge at the border.

    No asylum claims will be filed and processed at our Ports of Entry.

    They MUST file for asylum in their home country.

    We cannot allow two billion people to USE Mexico to gain illegal entry into our country and show up at our Ports of Entry without documentation.

    We do not want to send the message if you show up at the Port of Entry...we let you in! Two billion people will be on the way.

    Do the Executive Order until these clowns pass a Bill the American people want.

    That gives us another 2 years to stem this tide and review applications from the offices in their country.
