    WASHINGTON - Senate supporters of landmark immigration legislation looked ahead Wednesday to passage of a measure along lines set by President Bush, but they also signaled a willingness to seek common ground with conservatives whose House version would be far tougher on millions of men and women in the country illegally.

    It seems like the Senate is close to passing Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill, including Guest Worker program and path to Citizenship for some illegal immigrants.


    AP SC DAVID ESPO wrote (same, May 24, 2006) :

    Numerous conservative House Republicans have denounced the Senate measure as conferring amnesty on lawbreakers. Some have demanded that House leaders refuse to enter compromise discussions with the Senate, and they have warned that giving too much ground could cause conservatives to stay home this November and spell defeat for the party in midterm elections.

    Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and the man who would lead House negotiators, has a reputation for hard bargaining.

    However, even if such legislation is passed by Senate, it will either be eliminated during House-Senate talks or else House won't agree to passage of any Bill.


    AP SC DAVID ESPO wrote (same, May 24, 2006) :

    With Senate approval assured on Thursday, Arlen Specter, R-Pa., the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said, "Does anybody have a better approach? Not yet. But we're still open for business."...

    ...A prominent House conservative, Mike Pence of Indiana, added a new dimension to the debate this week, proposing what he called a "real rational middle ground."

    He outlined an approach that calls for securing the border, creating a guest worker program to "efficiently provide American employers with willing guest workers who come to America legally" and ordering tough sanctions on employers who hire illegal workers. In remarks at the Heritage Foundation, he added, "The only way to deal with these 12 million people is to insist that they leave the country and come back legally if they have a job awaiting them."

    Considering the importance of passing Immigration Bill this year, it is likely that Senate, in last minute, will yield a compromise that will:

    1. Eliminate participation of illegals in Guest Worker program.

    House MAY (?) agree to allow some illegals to leave the country and apply from abroad, but it still remains a big question if House will accept even that.

    ...Overall, what I predicted almost a year ago fairly reflects what is to be expected now.
