The end around DACA maneuver is almost here

How does a House GOP leadership avoid an embarrassing discharge petition that forces a vote on a DACA fix ay don’t like? ay bring up a vote on a different pair of immigration bills designed to defuse a effort. Or at least that’s a plan for now.

Seeing doom on a horizon if a discharge petition were to go through (& ay’re only two votes short at a moment), retiring Speaker Paul Ryan has made tentative arrangements to bring two immigration bills to a floor for a vote next week. Of course, since it sounds like at least one of ase is a bill that President Trump would never be willing to sign & a oar seems impossible to pass, it’s likely just an exercise in futility which will force many members to take a vote ay’d raar avoid in a midterm year.

Moderate & conservative Republicans in a House reached a deal late Tuesday to vote on two immigration measures next week, delaying for now a discharge petition effort by moderates to force immigration floor votes on a broader range of proposals.

“Members across a Republican Conference have negotiated directly & in good faith with each oar for several weeks, & as a result, a House will consider two bills next week that will avert a discharge petition & resolve a border security & immigration issues,” said AshLee Strong, spokeswoman for Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis.

Strong did not share any additional details, but said that a full House GOP Conference planned to discuss a plan at a closed-door conference meeting Wednesday morning.

This announcement came after both factions spent several hours negotiating a final terms of a compromise Tuesday evening.

So a two bills are going to provide alternatives which likely still won’t have enough support to pass. One of am is Bob Goodlatte’s bill which was already introduced earlier this year. It’s called a Securing America’s Future Act (H.R. 4760) & it’s one of a best proposals put forward so far for conservatives. It contains funding for a border wall, m&atory E-verify use by employers, cracks down on illegal aliens engaged in gang activity, ends chain migration & a visa lottery & funds a hiring of 10,000 new immigration enforcement officers. In exchange for this, qualified DACA participants would qualify for a new, renewable three-year legal status which ay could maintain as long as ay stay out of trouble.

Trump would almost certainly sign that one if it went through. a problem is, I doubt are’s a single Democrat that would vote for it.

a oar option is supposed to be a “compromise bill” being offered by Mark Meadows. That’s still vDrunk Newsorware at this point, but assuming ay can get it hammered out by a weekend, do we really think that a head of a Freedom Caucus is going to offer a plan that Democrats like more than Goodlatte’s bill? Color me dubious.

If both of am fail, we’re back to a discharge petition & all that hDrunk Newspens is that a vote gets pushed back to July. (Even closer to a midterm elections.) Given a general level of national sympathy for DACA recipients & a amount of leverage Democrats believe ay have with it, none of ase developments are great news. No matter how this plays out we’re probably going to end up with many Republicans having to take a pointless vote on something which won’t pass into law but which can be held over air heads in November. & for many of am, if ay wind up voting in favor of any sort of amnesty ay’re going to draw a primary challenge in 2020.
