GOP Leadership Plotting to Pass Amnesty in August
They’re trying to wait until after the primaries.
Check it out:
Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), the House GOP Conference Chair, said that amnesty legislation could come to the floor by August.
Her comments come after multiple House Republicans have ramped up support for amnesty legislation and discussed bills they plan to introduce in the coming months.
“I believe there is a path that we get a bill on the floor by August,” McMorris Rodgers said, according to the Spokesman-Review. “We’re going to have to push that this is a legal status, not amnesty,” she said.
According to NBC 5, Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) “will soon introduce a bill that will establish a path to citizenship for the minor children of illegal immigrants and a guest worker program.”
