Publisher's note: On Tuesday, POTUS will give his SOTU Address and it is expected that he will lay out his plans for the rest of his presidency, including that he will over-ride congress via Executive Order to complete his agenda.
Also this week, the Republican controlled House will reveal what it has come up with for "immigration reform." The only thing I'm sure of is that a whole lot of illegal trespassers are soon to become registered democrats. Thank you very much Speaker 'Nancy' Boehner.
Fox News: House Republicans are poised this week to release their plan to overhaul the country’s immigration system, according to The New York Times.
The broad-stroke plan is expected to be released by House leaders at their annual retreat on Maryland’s Eastern Shore that starts Wednesday.
The Democrat-controlled Senate passed comprehensive immigration reform this past summer that includes a 13-year path to citizenship for some of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants now living in the United States.
However, such legislation stalled in the House amid opposition from some of the chamber’s most conservative members who argue that giving illegal immigrants an opportunity to become citizens is tantamount to “amnesty.”
President Obama has made passing comprehensive legislation a major goal of his presidency, and he is expected to emphasize in his State of the Union address later this week that such reform remains a top priority in 2014.Add a comment
