BEWARE: House to Vote on 2 Bills That Provide Citizenship Path to Illegal Immigrants? The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives is set to vote on Thursday on two immigration bills that would provide a citizenship path for illegal immigrants, and legal status for immigrant farmworkers. House Democratic Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) told reporters that the House would take up the two immigration bills on Thursday after they cleared a procedural hurdle on Tuesday. Neither bill was taken up in the Senate when it had a Republican majority. With Democrats now holding narrow control of the upper chamber, they hope to be able to attract some Republican support. The American Dream and Promise Act would offer a pathway to citizenship to those who entered the country illegally as children and are currently living in the United States, also known as “Dreamers.” The same bill would also help immigrants in the country who received temporary migration protections. The bill is sponsored by Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.). An estimated 4.4 million illegal immigrants could become eligible for permanent residence if the bill is passed, according to the Migration Policy Institute. In 2019, seven Republicans joined 230 Democrats in the House in voting for the bill. The other immigration bill, the Farm Workforce Modernization Act, would provide illegal immigrant agricultural workers a path to legal status, and make the H-2A guestworker program more flexible for employers. The bill is sponsored by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) and has a Republican co-sponsor, Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-Wash.). It passed the House in 2019 with the support of 34 Republicans. Hoyer said on Tuesday: “These two bills are not the fix, but they are [a] fix to part of the problem. But we need to pass comprehensive immigration reform and we’re going to do so in the coming months.”
Marjorie Taylor Greene on Telegram: Floor procedure is far more important and effective than wasting time, powerless in the minority, on committee assignments. Here’s why.. Yesterday, I called for a recorded vote on Jerry Nadler’s bill that never went through Judiciary Com even though it was referred. HR 1652 has no text on the Congressional website, never went through committee, and will cost American taxpayers $7.5 billion. By the way, Nadler is chairman of the committee this bill skipped and went strait to the floor for a voice vote. If I had not been present in the chamber, and stood to request a roll call, this bill would have passed with roughly only 12 members (R and D) simply saying “yay.” By my action on the floor, all 435 members of Congress now have to vote on record for the bill in order for it to either pass or fail. People, on both sides of the aisle, should be outraged that Congress can spend billions with only a handful of members present and saying “yay.” Both parties do this and ironically it was a R member who argued with me not to call recorded votes so that bills would easily pass and members could avoid “embarrassment” of their vote not being on record to their voters. I was told “this is how freshman get a bill passed and that helps them when it’s time for re-election. And this is how you become an effective member of Congress.” I fully disagree that sneaking bills into passage in the dark with a tiny fraction of Congress only saying “yay” is being an effective member of Congress. I call that mind numbing behavior being an effective member of the swamp which has disgustingly enslaved Americans in $30 trillion of debt and has eroded our freedoms. So, I won’t be taking the forcefully given advice on how to join the swamp and to stop calling for recorded votes and using other rules on the floor. Being kicked off committee assignments by Dems (+11 foolish Republicans) has allowed me to learn and use the rules that hold Congress accountable. Right now, working very hard on the Committee of the Whole, holding Congress accountable and forcing transparency, during this radical Dem controlled Congress, is far more important to the people than any powerless committee assignment. For me, it’s people over politicians, and the people deserve to see the truth.
