I heard on the news the House said they would reject the Senate Bill because they wanted to draft one of their own.
JimmyMack, this is a good bill; however I don’t think the house should pass it as is without concrete enforcement on the border with penalties for not enforcing it.

The House needs to get with the program and get a bill into conference committee so that this issue can be disposed of NOW. The Senate bill looks like a pretty good template.

Besides that, the country needs to update the way we deal with immigration for a whole host of reasons - not the least of which is national security.
They need to get it done NOW.
