We are just 18 votes away from being able to pass comprehensive immigration reform in the House.
It’s true: Despite Speaker John Boehner’s refusal to compromise, there is still one clear way to pass comprehensive immigration reform in January—with a discharge petition.
There are currently 200 representatives who’ve signed on as co-sponsors of H.R. 15, the House immigration bill. All we need is one Democrat gutsy enough to lead and 217 representatives to vote for a discharge petition—that’s just 18 more members than are already co-sponsoring the bill. It’s a simple process that would bypass Speaker Boehner and trigger an up-or-down vote.
We are asking Congresswomen Nancy Pelosi, one of the authors of H.R. 15, to pledge to introduce a discharge petition today!
