Angry 3 amendments with same or similar content

Looks like in the final hours before voting started 646 was split into 646, 1017 and 1025, with same or smilar content. Either to confuse callers or to take the chance to get one of three passed. I cant beleive these people are so cunning.

I am worried about the trickling effect of this poison pill on president's EO. Nothing has been announced yet, and USCIS can take these precedents into account and give adverse recommendations and jeopardize the entire process. This is s#it scary.

Seems like all the phone calls did have the intended effect. Hatch amendment doesn't seem to have enough votes and it appears that Sen. Hatch may not press for vote on his amendments to increase H1 visas.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this extremely important action item.

We WILL Win!

Someone online said that

Quote:
Congress is only working on budget resolutions. It is basically a roadmap for spending and revenue generation. This does not even need the President's signature. The Hatch amendment was basically a place holder for future revenue generation by increasing H1B cap. After that, they will have to work on the actual budget and the specific items will still need to be voted on as separate legislation.

UPDATE:

The Budget resolution did pass by a vote of 52-48 strictly along party lines. But this budget also has provisions of repealing the ACA so it is not going anywhere. I think yesterday's issue was made a mountain out of a molehill. Congress has not passed a budget for a while and this is not passing either.
I trust IV and come here get the true story. Was H1B visa increase vote about nothing?
