House Judiciary Committee to Consider Piecemeal Immigration Bills

Rate this Entry

House Judiciary Committee Chair Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and Immigration Subcommittee Chair Trey Gowdy (R-SC) held a joint press briefing today to announce they would not wait on the House Gang of Eight and would consider individual immigration bills on different aspects of reform. Goodlatte's move is expected to put pressure on the House negotiators to accelerate their work an introduce their bill in the next few weeks.


Whether the Judiciary Committee will vote to provide a path to citizenship is far from clear. But Senator McCain made it clear to the House that they shouldn't bother passing immigration reform without a path to citizenship as that would not be acceptable to the Senate.


The Senate, in the mean time, is ready to move in to mark up mode. Senator Leahy has said they'll start on May 9th and amendments are due in on the 7th.
