In midst of an unsettling White House ‘framework’ and bi-partisan Senate non-compromise ‘compromises,’ our map shows you where the GOOD(latte) guys & gals in the House hail from #SupportSecureAmericasFutureAct #Trump

SUN, JAN 28th

Your NumbersUSA staff has been busy reacting through national media about the strengths and shortcomings of the President’s emerging “framework” for what he wants to see in an immigration bill he would sign into law in February.

Also yesterday, Rosemary Jenks, our Director of Government Relations on Capitol Hill, gave her take on the political lay of the land on Breitbart Radio (key segment is 3:00 – 7:00):

Rosemary said the No. 1 action we all can take is to push for a vote on the House floor for passage of H.R. 4760, the Securing America’s Future Act. We usually call it the “Goodlatte bill” or the “House chairmen’s bill” for Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), Rep. Mike McCaul (R-Texas), Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) and Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.), all chairs of key committees and subcommittees.

The map below colors in all the Districts where a Representative has cosponsored the Goodlatte bill, the only DACA-legalization proposal of all the ones offered this year that:

  • ends Chain Migration admissions within one year,
  • lowers the overall annual level of legal immigration, and
  • mandates E-Verify to prevent employers from hiring millions more parents who would be tempted by this amnesty to illegally bring their children to this country.

 

Look at the map: Is your District green (cosponsoring H.R. 4760) or gray (sitting on the sidelines and keeping the bill from a vote)?

Go to https://www.numbersusa.com/news/securing-americas-future-act-77-cosponsors to see the full list of cosponsoring Representatives in each state.

Based on how your District is colored, you can go to your customized Action Board and thank your Rep. for cosponsoring the bill, or encourage your Rep. to get off the sidelines and sign the bill.

The only way Speaker Ryan (R-Wis.) will bring H.R. 4760 to a floor vote is if he sees there is an overwhelming push through cosponsorships and other actions of support.

The 77 cosponsors thus far are a major sign of momentum. But we have to get that number much higher in this next week.

Whether or not the Goodlatte bill can pass the Senate is beside the point right now. The House must pass this common sense bill to establish a benchmark to which Senators — with all their expansionist views in both Parties — must respond.

Most analysts in the media and Congress are declaring H.R. 4760 can’t get through the House now that Pres. Trump has introduced a framework that is so much weaker.

It is our job to prove the analysts wrong, as we have so many times before.
