Any immigration bill that passes the house will result in amnesty. Even if that bill does not contain amnesty and even if that bill sounds like the best thing for America ever it should be voted down. Why? Because the democrats will change it and pass it with a compromise. If any immigration bill passes the house no matter what it looks like, I will vote against GOP until the day I die. I have never vote for a democrat in my life.

Although I've not read it anywhere else, Rubio made the claim that the US needs the millions of illegal aliens in the labor force, earning wages, and paying taxes doing the work at less than minimum wage that American's wont do. Has anyone heard that excuse from a credible source cause it seems like BEE ESS to me?

It also doesn't address how Schumer-Rubio, with no border enhancements, protects America's sovereignty and security. It allows a repetition of the situation we now face in another 10 years which means the Congressional plan for getting around the Immigration Service they created but have lost faith in is to do this again in another 10 years. A 10 year cycle of allowing illegals to enter and then "legalize" them until the borders and immigration are just done away with. I guess those Americans Rubio identified as not cutting it needs to plan for the competition.

Yesterday was a busy day on the immigration front.  Let's get you caught up.  Earlier in the week, sources close to House Speaker John Boehner were indicating that he would respect the so-called 'Hastert rule' by ensuring that any immigration reform legislation brought to the floor would enjoy the backing of a majority of House Republicans.  On Tuesday, the Speaker confirmed those reports publicly:


Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Tuesday told GOP lawmakers that he would adhere to the “Hastert Rule” on immigration reform and not hold a vote without the support of a majority...
