Dreier rejects Senate version of immigration bill:

Rep. David Dreier announced Wednesday that he will not vote for the Senate’s version of immigration legislation, breaking ranks with the White House and bolstering his image as a hard-liner on the border.

Emblematic of the impending battle for a compromise, the Republican chairman of the House Rules Committee said he will fight with his colleagues to ensure the Senate bill does not take precedence over the border security bill passed by the House in mid-December.

The Senate’s proposal to grant a path to citizenship for an estimated 12 million to 20 million illegal immigrants would create an ill-equipped bureaucracy, said Dreier in an interview with the Daily Bulletin on Wednesday. He added that border security must remain a top priority in any immigration reform proposal.
