    The senate will definatly pass the immigration reform bill and frist has said he will get it out by memmorial day...according to the article, the 2 billion dollar will be for the border patrol in the south..i doubt they will try o pu some kind of H.R4437 into the appropriation bill..if hey do, hen they should try to add the guest worker in there also.

    Like I said, Frist has nothing to lose. On the contrary, if he gets that 2 billion enforcement only provision passed he will look "tough" on immigration and this will help the Republicans. The CIR bill isn't going to make it through the Senate let alone the House this year. They are too divided and there isn't enough time.

    Depends on what "other" projects they try to sneak into the bill. It is common practice for Senators to try to sneak pet projects into "must pass" bills. They're called pork barrel projects. They take advantage of the urgency of these bills because they know they will get passed. Sometimes Senators will fight it out to get things put in or taken out, just like any other bill. However, this is an important bill that will pass regardless.

    The AILA already warned about the intentions of some of the Senators to try to sneak in some enforcement-only provisions into this bill because they know no one will vote against securing the border:

    An appropriations bill authorizes the funding of necessary programs. This one that they are going to be debating will pay for the wars, the aid to the Katrina victims, and other things. It absolutely has to pass and will.

    Makes sense if you think about it. Sen. Frist has nothing to lose. There's no way the Democrats are going to vote against adding some enforcement provisions to the spending bill. Everyone agrees that we need better enforcement. The spending bill must be passed because it funds the troops and the Katrina victims. No way the Democrats are going to stop this bill. Either way, Frist can say he pushed something through this year.

    I don't know, seems a bit fishy to me. According to this article, they're going to add a 2 billion dollar enforcement provision to the appropriations bill next week first then move onto the CIR bill. Could be a bait n switch. If the CIR fails then Frist can still say he pushed some enforcement upgrades to the immigration system and look tough on immigration. This will make his base happy.

    Why wouldn't they just pass the appropriation bill and then tackle everything on immigration at once? Or why wouldn't they just tackle immigration first then move onto the appropriations bill?

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
