House Will Vote On Giffords Border Bill Retiring Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has announced that the final piece of legislation she will vote on will be her own bill to stop cross border smuggling. “The bill, which would apply anti-smuggling laws to ultralight aircraft now used by traffickers to move illegal drugs across the U.S.-Mexican border, was introduced last night by Rep. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) with Giffords as the primary cosponsor. The House passed the legislation in the last Congress, but it died in the Senate. The Senate then passed it last year, but that measure was blocked in the House with a “blue slip” — which means it was objected to on the grounds that the Constitution prohibits a bill containing tax provisions from originating in the Senate.”

Romney Advocates Self Deportation As Solution To Immigration Problem In last nights Republican debate Mitt Romney, advocated “self deportation”  as a solution to the nations current immigration problems. “Romney was asked how he would reconcile his pledge that, as president, he wouldn’t order mass deportations of undocumented immigrants with his promise to crack down on illegal immigration. His answer: “self-deportation.”If the nation’s immigration laws are enforced Romney said, undocumented workers will return to their home countries once employment opportunities dry up. “If people don’t get work here, they’re going to self-deport to a place where they can get work,” he said.”

Florida GOP Debate: Gingrich’s Military Dream At the same debate Newt Gingrich stated that he would also veto the current version of the DREAM Act if it crossed his path as president.  Gingrich said during the debate that he would allow undocumented immigrants to earn U.S. citizenship if they serve in the armed forces. But, the former House Speaker said that, if president, he would veto a version of the proposed DREAM Act that would allow a path to citizenship for children who come to the United States with their undocumented parents if they complete college. Gingrich argued that college graduation alone is not enough but pointed out that citizens of other countries already have the opportunity to earn U.S. citizenship by wearing a uniform and added that children of undocumented immigrants too should have that option.
