Goodlatte: Expect House Floor Votes on Immigration Bills in October

Rate this Entry
Benjy Sarlin at MSNBC is reporting that Bob Goodlatte, the House Judiciary Committee Chair and the chief driver of GOP immigration legislation, is optimistic that several votes on GOP immigration bills will happen next month, despite the crowded legislative calendar and the small number of days the House is in session. From Sarlin:

Republican Congressman Bob Goodlatte, chair of the House Judiciary Committee overseeing immigration, said he expected Congress to pursue reform legislation despite a tight schedule featuring debates over Syria, health care, and the debt limit.

Those and other issues “should not deter us from getting to [immigration] as soon as possible,” Goodlatte said in an appearance on WAMU’s Kojo Nnamdi Show on Tuesday.

Goodlatte said he expected votes soon, perhaps in October, on a series of smaller House billson border security, internal enforcement, guest workers, and high-tech visas.

“Those bills are ready to go to the floor of the House and it’s my hope they come to the floor of the House as soon as possible,” he said.

The House may not be ready to deal with some issues (like the legalization piece), but they don't necessarily have to have every detail worked out in October to keep the ball moving on immigration reform. The important thing is to to keep the process advancing and it sounds like that is the plan.
