Report: House GOP Still Working on Amnesty in Secret
“While the spotlight on Congress is on the partisan brawl over government spending and President Barack Obama’s health care law, some Republicans in the House are quietly working to bring some momentum to work on fixing the immigration system,” Fox News Latino writes.
“In June, the Senate passed a bipartisan immigration reform measure. But in the House, where Republicans are in control, efforts to come up with a bill or bills have run into problems, as many of those most conservative members of the party vow not to support a measure that would provide a pathway to legal status to undocumented immigrants.”
“The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, has been discussing possible legal status for the estimated 11 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. He’s also been working with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, a fellow Virginia Republican, on a bill offering citizenship to immigrants brought illegally to the U.S. as children.”
Illegal Alien Marches Planned Next Saturday
“Supporters of immigration reform want to recapture some of the energy from the massive marches that took place in 2006 when they take to the streets again next Saturday in Phoenix and cities across the country,” the Arizona Republic writes.
“Next Saturday’s marches are not expected to be nearly as large as those in 2006. But reform advocates still believe they will be big enough to grab the attention of lawmakers in Congress and spur them to pass a bill that includes a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.”
“Reform advocates have scheduled marches and similar events in at least 90 cities. They expect tens of thousands of people to participate nationwide in the so-called National Day of Action.”
Illegal Alien Activists Plan Public Border Crossing in El Paso
“At 1 p.m. Monday, Rocio Hernandez Perez and 29 other young people will walk in a convoy across the bridge over the Rio Bravo and head for the Nuevo Laredo border crossing between Mexico and the US. Dressed uniformly in graduation caps and gowns in the style of American students, which most of them once were, they will present themselves to U.S. border guards on the Texas side of the crossing and in effect beg to be arrested,” Rawstory.com writes.
“They expect to be handcuffed and removed into a side room in the Nuevo Laredo border post for processing. If all goes according to plan, they will then be taken into detention where they will be held in custody for what could be several weeks.”
