First it was postponed until tomorrow. Now the breaking reports are that it’s been postponed until next week:
DC EXAMINER – House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and GOP leadership have delayed a vote on a compromise immigration bill until next week, according to House GOP members.
Leadership made that decision at a conference meeting Thursday night after delaying the vote once earlier in the day to Friday.
According to lawmakers, members were concerned that issues concerning agriculture visas and E-Verify were atop the list of concerns and could make their way into the bill.
“I don’t know whether we can make an agreement on those issues,” said Rep. Mike Coffman, R-Colo. “ A lot of members brought up those two issues.”
Sounds like this bill is on thin ice, as they can’t get the votes needed to pass it.
Looks like Trump might have to break out his pen and phone….and by that I mean Twitter.
Trump just tweeted this not 5 mins ago:
You cannot pass legislation on immigration whether it be for safety and security or any other reason including “heart,” without getting Dem votes. Problem is, they don’t care about security and R’s do. Zero Dems voted to support the Goodlatte Bill. They won’t vote for anything!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 21, 2018
Told ya. Although I thought he might hammer some Republicans here, but so far just the Democrats. Give it time.
