House GOP weighs new immigration bills

WASHINGTON — House Republicans pushed legislation on Friday that would clear the way for eventual deportation of more than 500,000 aliens brought here illegally as children and address the surge of aliens at the U.S.-Mexico border.

After more than a year of inaction on immigration, House GOP leaders were optimistic about securing Tea Party and other conservative support for two bills that Republicans can highlight when they return home to voters during Congress’ five-week summer break.

Votes were expected late Friday.

We already have an immigration law called the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act, a.k.a. The Simpson-Mazzoli Act. We don't need another bill. We also used to have this place called Ellis Island. I hear that used to work very well too.
