Senate Democratic Immigration Negotiators to Meet With House Democrats

The four Senate Democrats who negotiated an immigration reform bill will cross the Capitol to meet Tuesday morning with the House Democratic Caucus at its weekly meeting, a House source confirmed.

The session was announced via Twitter by the office of Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y.

“Looking forward to discussing immigration w/ @housedemocrats tomorrow along w/ @SenatorDurbin @Menendez4NJ @SenBennetCO,” Schumer’s staff posted.

The meeting is slated to begin at 9 a.m. Immigration reform has a tough road ahead in the Republican-controlled House. The GOP caucus will meet Wednesday to discuss its approach to the legislation, which is widely viewed as a political necessity for the Republican Party and recently got the endorsement of former President George W. Bush, who failed in his own right to get a bill in 2007.

Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters Monday border security would have to come first, though the Senate bill includes boosted security provisions that irked many Democrats.

    For all the tough talk about immigration reform, the House has done NOTHING on border security and the Senate has. Likewise, they’ve done NOTHING to solve the visa overstay issue, workplace verification or the H-1B visa problem. It is well and good to vaguely declare the Gang of Eight bill insufficient, but certainly it does more for border security and these other issues than House Republicans have managed to do (which is NOTHING).

    The argument that the House can do NOTHING runs headlong into anti-immigration forces hype about the out-of-control border and the supposed economic burdens of illegal immigration. If it’s such a horrible problem — immigrants pouring over the border and all — why is the REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED HOUSE JUST SITTING THERE?????

    W supported immigration reform when he was prez.
    The house scuttled a Senate passed immigration reform bill that W OKd and that was that.
    The teapublicans have an even tighter noose on the party now,,,
    so what makes anyone think they will cave & pass reform?
    Besides,,, folding is Harry Reid’s job.

    I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
