US Republicans Fail To Pass Another Immigration Bill

U.S. Attorney General Jefferson Sessions talks about immigration at the NASRO School Safety Conference at the Peppermill Resort on Monday

House Republicans are set to vote Wednesday on a hard-fought immigration compromise between conservative and moderate GOP flanks, but the bill has lost any real chance for passage despite a public outcry over the crisis at the border.

The bill evolved to address two urgent crises triggered by Trump's hardline immigration agenda: his cancellation of a program that shielded from deportation hundreds of thousands of young, undocumented immigrants brought to the USA as children, known as Dreamers, and the "zero-tolerance" policy which led to the family separations.

That's what the Congressman said last week, before Republicans were unable to pass two immigration bills in the GOP-controlled U.S. House of Representatives.

Last week's bill was the more hardline of the two while the bill up for a vote on Wednesday was considered the compromise measure.

Included in the bill was almost $25 billion for the U.S. -Mexico border wall, a project sharply opposed by Democrats but required by Trump, he said, for his signature.

The House may vote next month, after its July 4 recess, on a measure that would focus specifically on the family separations issue.

Senate Democrats and Republicans have been exploring possible legislation to ban the separation of immigrant children from their families and require rapid reunification of children taken from their parents under "zero tolerance".

Online Retailers Lose State Tax Subsidy
The US Supreme Court ruled Thursday that American states had the right to tax internet sales of goods and services. Kennedy wrote that the 1992 precedent that affirmed that a physical presence is required - a case called Quill v.

The rejection of the bill once again revealed the divide between the moderate and conservative leaders within the Republican Party over the issue, with several Republican conservatives arguing that it tilts in favor of undocumented immigrants. GOP aides said Republicans had yet to agree on bill language, and the effort was complicated by a federal judge who ordered that divided families be reunited with 30 days. "They didn't even know", he said at a rally for South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster.

But on Wednesday - just hours before the vote - the President asked members to support the GOP's own compromise bill, which he referred to as Goodlatte II.

As such, and through a purely Irish reform lens, neither bill would have met the criteria necessary to be dubbed a true comprehensive immigration reform measure.

Lawmakers are expected to turn to a more narrow family separation bill after the broad immigration bill failed, but most Democrats do not support a plan that would keep families in extended detention.

On Tuesday the president was handed an important - if largely symbolic - victory on another key plank of his migration policy as the Supreme Court voted to uphold his controversial travel ban targeting five Muslim-majority nations. While politics or court decisions may pressure lawmakers to try acting before November, Republican leaders want to avoid fractious battles that distract voters from their preferred campaign sales pitch: the solid economy.

"Let's take a step back here and remember why we're here this week with this process: Our goal was to prevent a discharge petition from reaching the floor", Ryan said. "The bill included a conservative proposal to end family separations at the border, an issue that has inflamed tensions".

"A lot of our members want to be able to express themselves by voting for the policies that they like", Ryan said.
