1. If this works for the Dream Act,

we might be able to wring out a few more assists from the Moderate Republicans before they lose their jobs.

2. Putting 2 bills up could be a gambit to give Repubs a little cover without risking anything passing

Even if Dems all vote for 1 of the bills, assuming 1 of the 2 options is even slightly palatable to Dems, a fraction of the Repubs can vote for it and it will still fail. Presumably the other bill will be so noxious Dems hate it and all vote against. Both fail, yet all the Repubs who need to look like they were willing to do immigration reform/DACA protection have a positive vote to point to. And the Repubs who need to be seen voting against immigration bills get 2 bites at the apple.

I'm not yet buying the framing that these 2 bills are a result of failed negotiations instead of a cynical plan by Repub leadership to have opportunities to claim to be trying without actually accomplishing anything. We'll see when they actually come to the floor for votes and the entire texts are known.

3. House Republican Leaders Promise Immigration Votes Next Week.

'After a frenzied, late-night negotiation, Speaker Paul D. Ryan defused a moderate Republican rebellion on Tuesday with a promise to hold high-stakes votes on immigration next week, thrusting the divisive issue onto center stage in the middle of an already difficult election season for Republicans.

The move by Mr. Ryan, announced late Tuesday by his office, was something of a defeat for the rebellious immigration moderates, who fell two signatures short of the 218 needed to force the House to act this month on bipartisan measures aimed more directly at helping young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.

Instead, the House is most likely to vote on one hard-line immigration measure backed by President Trump and conservatives — and another more moderate compromise bill that was still being drafted, according to people familiar with the talks. Had the rebels secured just two more signatures for their “discharge petition,” they would have also gotten votes on the Dream Act, which would have given legalization and a path to citizenship for young immigrants brought as children, known as Dreamers, and another bipartisan measure that would have coupled aid to Dreamers and some added border enforcement.

Mr. Ryan desperately wanted to avoid bringing those bipartisan measures to the floor. He is expected to present a detailed plan for next week’s votes to his conference on Wednesday morning.'>>>

4. Even if it passes both houses, Tangeranus will veto it.
