gop lawmakers: A day after a handful of House progressives introduced legislation to erase the federal agency, GOP lawmakers on Friday were considering scheduling a vote on the effort, according to The Chronicle Herald. That would force Democrats to take a stand on a proposal many of them would rather avoid because either way, they risk alienating voters. Republicans like it too, but think a better use for the proposal is to cause campaign-season headaches for Democrats. The bill has no chance of passage by the Republican-dominated chamber. In hopes of blunting GOP efforts to embarrass and divide them, Democrats said Friday they would oppose their own legislation en masse if Republicans forced a vote. It was unclear if the vote, if held, would be on the Democratic legislation or a similar measure. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
