Thread: Frist will try to pass CIR by memorial day

  1. #1
    Sen. Frist plans on trying to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill by memorial day.

    http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...s/3810610.html

    However, strategists on both side don't see this as anything more than more political grandstanding in order to revive the issue for the upcoming elections. They don't see CIR legislation passing this year. As noted in the article, they do see the Republicans trying to slip some of the enforcement-only provisions into the appropriations bill and other "must-pass" legislation.

    Regardless of what side of the debate you are on, right now is the time to speak up and let your Senators know how you feel.

    More political smoke and mirrors. The Republicans need to revive this issue and try to somehow make the Democrats look bad. The Dems on the other hand are content on riding the issue into November and hanging H.R. 4437 and the CIR collapse on the Republicans. This is too good for the Democrats to let go. If CIR passes the Republicans will get credit for it and that won't do the Dems any good. Besides, the hardline Republicans would just as soon see it die as well. Especially now that ICE and DHS are doing their job. All they'd need to do is slip in a few of the enforcement provisions into one of the must pass bills and whoalla. Since they already slipped 2 billion into the appropriation bill to beef up the border all they'd need to do is add legislation that would expand the employer verification system and make it mandatory as well as giving ICE and DHS access to the SSN database. That would put a huge dent in the illegal population.

    Harry reid seems to suggest he wont stop the passage of the compromise because he angered hispanic,unions and church groups when he blocked the passage...hispanic lobbyist told harry reid to let the bill go throught and this is why he asked bill frist to please bring the bill back up once the senate gets back from the recess...also, harry reid's been under heavy pressure from the president and members from his own party for blocking the bill, so i doubt the democraic party will block this thing...mark my words, there 's a strong bi partisan groups that is pushing for this.

    And again ..Politics has always been the name of the game. Does anyone really believe that ANY issue incongress this year is going to be about anything BUT political maneuvoring?This is and will remain a Hot buttonissue year and thats the bottom line.
    First comes the ring
    Then comes marriage
    Then comes the cute baby in carriage.

    We used to sing that when i was young.
    The ring is BORDER ENFORCEMENT AND CRACKDOWNS(cause the Government need to be SEEN as DOING something by the American people to justify the marriage.
    The marriage is IMMIGRATION REFORM...And the the baby is either going to be a republican or a d emocratic congress.
    A rebirth.
    Trust Me.
    Immigration Reform is happening
