ABSTRACT
The article reports on the effort of the House Republicans to stop the Senate immigration bill in the U.S. The House Republicans holds that it is a constitutional rule that revenue-related bills must originate in the House. The Senate immigration measure requires that illegal immigrants pay back taxes before becoming citizens and opening a chance for a House protest which dubbed as a blue slip. The new Senate bill must survive two more weeks of voter scrutiny and argumentative amendments.
