Moderate Republicans Are Working With Democrats To Force Work On Immigration

  • 6 years ago
Some moderate Republicans and Democrats are joining together to force a vote on immigration reforms.
They are trying to use a procedural method called a discharge petition.
This would force a "queen of the hill" style vote on a series of immigration bills
that would circumvent House Speaker Paul Ryan's control of the floor.
Ryan has yet to put immigration legislation up for a vote in the two months
after several proposals went down in the Senate.
