(Worthy News) - Republicans leaders say they’ll put two immigration bills on the floor next week to satisfy GOP lawmakers divided over how to legalize Dreamers and reform the nation’s immigration system.

The House will vote on a bill favored by conservatives and authored by Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., which would legalize Dreamers, end the diversity visa program, require employers to use E-Verify, and establish a guest worker program. Lawmakers will also vote on a second bill that skews more toward moderates, who oppose E-Verify, do not want to reduce visas, and are seeking an eight-year pathway to citizenship for Dreamers.

The move ends the effort to bring a discharge petition to the House floor that would require a vote on a trio of bills, including two most of the GOP would not support. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
