REPORT: Leaders warn Republicans against forcing immigration vote
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
Republican leaders warned rank-and-file members Wednesday not to move ahead with a discharge petition to force an immigration vote, saying the effort would effectively hand over power to the Democrats, according to lawmakers who attended the closed-door meeting.
“They said it’s a lot better to stick together as team than a few guys trying to do their own thing with a bill that simply switches the power over to the other party,” Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-Calif.) told The Hill. “It turns the floor over to them.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Leaders also said that the “the governing majority should be able to accomplish its agenda without resorting to discharge,” said Rep. Steve Womack (R-Ark.). “That’s fundamental to governing.”
After the meeting, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) reiterated his opposition to the discharge petition.
“Obviously, we do not agree with discharge petitions; we think they are a mistake. They disunify our majority,” Ryan told reporters during his weekly press conference. “There are members of our majority fall into different camps, and they want a solution on DACA, and they want a solution on the border and the security issues, so we want to accommodate all of that.”
“We don’t want to advance something that won’t become law and just get vetoed even if it made it to the president’s desk. We want to advance something that has a chance of going into law that the president supports. That’s why we met with the president [yesterday].”
