BOSTON (AP) — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is urging House Republican leaders to allow a vote on a sweeping immigration bill passed overwhelmingly in the Senate earlier this year.

The Massachusetts Democrat said the bill would likely pass in the House, with the support of Democrats and some Republicans, and be signed by President Barack Obama.

But many Republicans in the House reject the Senate plan to provide a path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants living here illegally and tighten border security.

Instead some Republicans are pushing for a more piecemeal approach.

Warren said that would be a mistake. She said current immigration policy is bad both for those in the country illegally and also for the nation’s economy.

Warren made the comments following a speech to the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce Monday.

    Why allow them in if you are a native American. It is your land and it is being invaded by ILLEGALS. What don’t you understand about the law? What mind control laws do they teach you at Harvard? If you grant illegals citizen status I would never find an American guilty of breaking any law if I were on a jury.

    You are just like your leader a LIAR and ignorant.

    We’ll put, weasel. 11million illegals.
    That’s staggering to think we are allowing this to happen in a country that our ancestors had to register in and declare that they had work here.
    These illegals have invaded our country and are receiving welfare of some sort.
    All she and the other liberals are thinking are votes, votes and more votes for them because they are the ones behind all the free lunches for these people.
    These illegals should be returned to their countries of origin and have to apply for visas.
    Imagine all the services these 11 million require from the taxpayer.
