House Democrats push for vote on immigration reform

Democrats in the House of Representatives are seeking to get the ball rolling on raising the minimum wage and streamlining immigration laws once Congress resumes session on Monday, February 24.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Democrat of California) said the Democrats will make a move on the wage issue after Congress returns from a break by utilizing a “discharge petition,” a legislative tactic that entails getting the support of two dozen of the majority party, in this case the Republicans, and forcing a vote on an issue.

Voting on the overhaul of immigration laws, meanwhile, could happen in a few months, Pelosi said.

The two issues are said to be priorities of President Barack Obama, and that a majority of the Americans found the measures favorable, House Democrats said earlier.
