Next up, later this month, is debate in the U.S. House of Representatives.  According to many House Republicans, an immigration reform bill with a legalization component will only pass over their dead bodies, and that absent a definitive plan to “secure the border” (whatever is meant by that) a non-comprehensive, piecemeal immigration bill is what is appropriate for consideration.   Maybe their strong objections are based on what their truly believe is best for our country, or maybe they are just spouting out what they think their local constituencies want to hear.  Maybe, they will not even truly mind if a comprehensive reform bill passes, but that they cannot be on record as supporting it.  Whatever is the case; the House debate on the issue will not lack for drama, and will involve loud, and louder, conversations and speeches.   All immigration reform legislation developments will continue to be covered here.
