Is the New Immigration Bill going to pass the House of Representatives?

First, the House of Representatives is going to vote on their own Immigration bill. Moreover, it maybe more than one Immigration Bill that is passed by the House of Representatives.

The House may split up the Immigration Bill into numerous Bills. The Republican majority may start with just a Security Bill that addresses only border issues. Then they may just have a Bill that addresses legal immigration (various visas to enter the United States), and finally a separate bill dealing with just illegal aliens inside the United States.

After all these bills are passed, it will need to go to the House of Representatives and Senate Committee and they will prepare a Compromise Bill, and then that Bill will have to pass both the House of Representatives and Senate, and signed by the President. Remember, this still just speculation, and the Republican Majority could decide to vote on one immigration bill. The situation is very fluid. The House will pass an Immigration Bill; the question is whether or not the Senate and House can agree on a Compromise Bill. We will keep you updated with each step of the process.
