Notes

H.Res. stands for House simple resolution.

A simple resolution is used for matters that affect just one chamber of Congress, often to change the rules of the chamber to set the manner of debate for a related bill. It must be agreed to in the chamber in which it was introduced. It is not voted on in the other chamber and does not have the force of law.

The resolution’s title was written by its sponsor.

5/24/2007--Introduced.
Expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that to deter further illegal immigration and strengthen the U.S. economy the following must be included in any immigration bill considered by the 110th Congress:
(1) increased resources for federal and state authorities to strengthen border patrol efforts;
(2) vigorous prohibition of the hiring of illegal aliens coupled with the establishment of an instant employment eligibility verification system;
(3) a renewed and limited temporary worker program;
(4) a prohibition of blanket amnesty for illegal aliens that does not harm the innocent victims of circumstance; and
(5) priority for law-abiding, highly-skilled immigrants.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.


No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
