House GOP walks out over immigration bill – Indianapolis Star

I’ve been posting on Bill 335 being introduced in Indiana which looks like it’s not going through as easily as many Republicans would have hoped – especially Mike Delph who introduced the bill.

House GOP walks out over immigration bill – Indianapolis Star

House Republicans staged a Statehouse walkout Thursday night to protest an effort by Democrats to prevent changes to an illegal-immigration bill.

The GOP boycott began shortly after 8 p.m. when Republicans refused to return to the House chamber after meeting behind closed doors on the issue for more than two hours.
The feuding centered on Senate Bill 335, which would punish employers that knowingly hire illegal immigrants.

Bauer, however, placed the House in recess instead of adjourning after the Republicans refused to return to the chamber. Doing so, he said, would not allow Republicans to offer changes Monday.

Bauer accused Republicans of trying to push racist provisions. “We don’t need a hate debate on this floor,” he said.
