    RIP: Immigration Reform bill is dead

    September 21, 2013 RIP: Immigration Reform bill is dead

    Rick Moran

    The "Gang of 7" immigration reform bill in the House, touted as a fix for all our immigration problems, died of disinterest yesterday. It was less than a year old.

    Washington Post:
    In a blow to the hopes of passing immigration reform anytime soon, the bipartisan House "gang of seven" plan is probably dead, and almost certainly won't be introduced this fall as promised, a top Democrat on the "gang" acknowledges.
    "It doesn't appear that we're going to move forward with the group of seven," Dem Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a key player on immigration as a member of the gang, said in an interview with me. "The process is stalled. I don't believe we're going to produce a bill anytime soon."
    This undermines the already dwindling prospects for reform, because the House "gang of seven" plan - which would provide a path to citizenship but is significantly to the right of the Senate bill - was seen as a comprehensive plan Republicans who genuinely want to solve the immigration problem just might coalesce around. (The gang of seven plan would reportedly provide for a probationary period for the 11 million, in which they'd admit wrongdoing, and onerous conditions for the path to citizenship, which would be 15 years long.)
    But Gutierrez tells me that House Republicans on the gang of seven - who have been trying to negotiate comprehensive reform that members of both parties can support for a long time - are just not prepared to embrace a final plan. He says he believes this is because House GOP leaders are not providing Republicans on the gang with support.
    "The bipartisan group just wasn't getting support from Republican House leadership," Gutierrez says. "It's just not gonna happen now." Gutierrez continues to believe there is substantial tacit support for immigration reform even among Republicans, but that the GOP leadership refuses to acknowledge this or try to make something happen. "We need the GOP leadership to acknowledge the votes exist for reform," he said.
    Immigration reformers had hoped for what they call a "bipartisan moment" on reform in October, after the government shutdown fight is resolved - one that could have involved rolling out the gang of seven plan. But Gutierrez cast doubt on the possibility, noting he doesn't expect anything to happen with the gang's bill "anytime in the near future."
    The bill is survived by Democratic lawmakers and 11 million illegal immigrants. Donations in memory of the bill can be sent to me, or to the Republican party - whoever you think deserves it more.

    Infographic: Crime Pays Under S.744
    By Adrienne Royer @ Immigration Reform

    No matter how many times the Gang of Eight or other amnesty supporters in the U.S. Senate promise that criminals won’t be legalized, S.744 waives a long list of crimes in the bill[/B].

    Compare the consequences of crimes waived for illegal aliens seeking amnesty in the Gang of Eight bill to the consequences U.S. citizens and legal immigrants would face. [...] - Immigration Reform and FAIR. - See more at: http://obamareleaseyourrecords.blogs....5UI5IL9E.dpuf

    While some are dancing and singing "the wicked witch is dead" let us not drop our guard and keep the protest and phone calls going non stop. These garbage brains for amnesty are always lurking, wait for an opportunity to "blind side" us. They know the American people do not want amnesty and therefore they need to get it made into law by treachery. Enjoy the moment but never cease being active and vigilant.

    I believe that Paul Ryan & Eric Cantor may still be working on some small Bills such as for Dream supporters in the House. They will attempt to push this as a Humanitarian Issue. So yea stay alert until its all absolutely dead. We all know the American people are extremely pissed off right now, last thing they wanna hear about is Amnesty for Illegal Aliens, so bringing anything of that nature up in the house is not a good move.

    This was taken from the Americans for Immigration Control web site and copied from ABC News:

    "The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday pledged action on immigration overhaul legislation even as most of the attention on Capitol Hill is focused on fights over the budget and debt. Rep. Bob Goodlatte said the immigration issue needs to be solved and work is happening behind the scenes toward that goal.
    Goodlatte, R-Va., said members of his committee are working on four bills to address various aspects of the immigration system, in addition to four that the committee already has approved. He didn’t elaborate on the bills in the works, but he and others have previously discussed legislation to grant work visas to lower-skilled workers, as well as a bill to give immigrants brought illegally to the U.S. as kids an “earned path to citizenship,” as he described it Thursday."
