House immigration bill is Dead


The gang of seven immigration bill in the House is dead, at least for this year. Dem Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a key player on immigration as a member of the gang told Greg Sargeant of the Washington Post, that the bill is stalled and not expected to go anywhere soon.  Certainly not this fall and unlikely this winter session.

That throws it into an election year, which could effectively kill the bill altogether.  Two reasons the bill has failed is that the republican leadership has refused to support any immigration bill and while on August vacation, many republicans heard from constituents, that they do not want amnesty for the 11.5 illegals currently in this country.
