HOUSE PASSES BORDER BILL

Rate this Entry

The surprise $600 million border security bill passed by the Senate last week has been quickly approved by the House in a voice vote. Though the House bill has language identical to the Senate bill it still is not ready to go to the President for signature. The Constitution (remember that old document?) requires that the House originate revenue bills so the Senate will need to approve it one more time. They won't get to this until they return from the August recess next month.

    How come we don't hear politicians calling this a "job killer".

    SIMPLE: This bill targets LEGAL SKILLED IMMIGRANTS not US CITIZENS. When the word "IMMIGRANTS" comes in any kinda bill its not "JOB KILLER".

    SENATE DEMS got a surprise on this Bill, they had thought it will be rejected by REPUBS, POLITICO covered this bill as "REPUBS ate DEMOCRATS LUNCH", I dont know how the DEMS will play when they come back from RECESS, hopefully they will add few more legal fixes.

    If it was legislation by mistake then house democrats would not have passed it so easy.

    When the jobs move abroad as a consequence of this, it is a jobs killer!

    Thought when the idiot Brits put a cap on skill immigrants and the Aussie opposition was talking about the same, we would gain. However, it seems like we are going to drive the jobs to Singapore, Hong Kong and Canada!

    Breaking news is that the Senate will have a special session on the 12th to specifically just do that.

    Now, that this is practically a done deal. What can the GOP allow in return? My guess is the DREAM act.

    Dems can keep on dreaming about GOP cooperation in any legislation. Dems will just get a middle finger from Republicans , I think they deserve it.
