House Republicans Scorn Senate Immigration Bill; Say They値l Craft Their Own

06.28.13 01:54 PM

House Republicans haven稚 had time to read through the massive omnibus immigration reform bill their Senate colleagues passed on Thursday.

Judging by their comments about the bill, which creates a path to amnesty for illegal aliens in the U.S. and authorizes completion of a border fence that the DHS Secretary can choose to terminate, they池e much more likely to craft their own version or smaller, bite-sized versions of immigration legislation than to spend time and energy reading through the Senate package, which most of them have already dismissed.

Regard for the Senate bill in the Republican-majority House is almost universally scornful, with Congressmen insinuating the House has become the 都marter legislative chamber, offering a moral and intellectual salve for the hasty, unconsidered and self-defeating approach to immigration reform they feel their Senate peers have taken.

Here痴 a sampling of House members spoken disdain for the Senate bill:
  • 笛ust like all the Senators, I haven稚 read it yet. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.)
  • 典he Corker-Hoeven [border security] amendment is terrible. John Fleming (R-La.)
  • 溺ore work on the border is good, but it doesn稚 solve all the problems with that bill. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.)
  • 的t is a pipe dream to think that that bill is going to the floor and be voted on. Peter Roskam (R-Ill.)
  • 甜F]old it up into a paper airplane and throw it out the window. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.)
  • 的f you think that the House is going to cave and bring up the Senate bill, that is idiotic. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.)
  • 典he Senate is, at this point, irrelevant. Ted Poe (R-Texas)
