The FAIR Take - Rogue House Republicans File Discharge Petition to Force Amnesty Votes
May 12, 2018
On Wednesday, Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.) filed a discharge petition that could force a vote on Rep. Jeff Denham’s (R-Calif.) “queen-of-the-Hill” resolution. Until this point, House leadership has demonstrated little urgency in bringing immigration legislation to the floor. Likely because Speaker Ryan (R-Wis.) previously promised his caucus that he would not raise any immigration bills that do not have the support of the majority of the Republican Members.
