//News// U.S. House may throw out immigration reform

A Washington newspaper reported that the U.S. House of Representatives may throw out the proposed immigration reform bill currently being debated in the U.S. Senate using a technicality.

Under the proposed immigration bill, illegal aliens in the U.S. would be considered for a Z visa to be able to live and work in the country, but only after meeting a number of requirements, including paying back taxes.

Based on congressional rules, any bill that is related to revenue genration must originate from the Lower House and not the Senate. Some congressmen reportedly will use this procedural rule to trash the proposed bill once it arrives in the House.
