    WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (CA-10) last week appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight to discuss his proposal to force a vote on four immigration reform bills in the U.S. House of Representatives under a rule known as queen-of-the-hill. The Denham Rule, H.Res. 774, has garnered more than 245 cosponsors, 50 of which are Republican, with the number increasing by the day; this is more than enough votes to pass the measure through the House. Rep. Denham also discussed border security pro... Read more

    Virtually all Democrats are poised to join a group of Republicans calling for House votes this election year on immigration, an effort that seems unlikely to succeed but would cast a campaign-season spotlight on an issue Democrats think will help their Election Day prospects. Rep. Jeff Denham, R-Calif., has gathered nearly 50 GOP co-sponsors – including U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph – on a procedural measure that would permit votes on four immigration bills. Those bills would include a cons... Read more

    There are still a few Republicans in Congress who are interested in addressing the status of the 690,000 or so young unauthorized immigrants facing the loss of their temporary deportation protections under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. And they’re beginning to turn up the pressure on House Republican leadership to bring a bill to the floor. Or rather, four bills. Moderate Republican Reps. Jeff Denham (R-CA) and Will Hurd (R-TX), together with members of the Congressi... Read more

Pete Aguilar (D-CA), Jeff Denham (R-CA), Will Hurd (R-TX) and Lujan Grisham (D-NM) announced that their bipartisan “queen-of-the-hill” rule to allow a floor debate on four DACA solution measures now has the support of 50 Republicans and 190 Democrats for a total of 240 cosponsors, easily surpassing the 218 votes needed to pass the measure through the House. The rule would force a debate and floor vote on Rep. Goodlatte’s Securing America’s Future Act, the clean Dream Ac... Read more

    The words “queen of the hill” and “discharge petition” may not mean a lot to those outside of Washington seeking a DACA fix. But they could be the key to a burgeoning coalition of House Republicans and Democrats anxious to at least have a debate on DACA and immigration policy. Rep. Jeff Denham (R-CA) is spearheading an effort to convince the House GOP leadership to put a series of immigration/DACA plans on the floor for a debate and vote. Denham says more than 50 Republicans and 190-plus Democra... Read more

    A bipartisan majority of the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday urged Speaker Paul Ryan to schedule debate on bills to protect young undocumented immigrants from deportation, in a move aimed at reviving a push that sputtered in the Senate in February. Backers said they had 240 House members on board so far pushing for debate of four different bills to replace the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which Republican President Donald Trump ended on March 5. Under the Hou... Read more

    A bipartisan group of 237 House members signed onto a “queen-of-the-hill” rule that would allow floor votes on four immigration bills without the approval of House committees or leadership. H.Res. 774 would provide four “slots” for votes on immigration bills either in their current form or as amended prior to the vote, Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.) said during an April 18 press conference. The resolution was introduced March 13 by Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.). All bills would provide some form of ... Read more
