TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH" A SWEEPING

IMMIGRATION BILL PASSES THE

SENATE.

WHY ITS FUTURE IN THE HOUSE IS

IN DOUBT.

PLUS PRESIDENT OBAMA IN AFRICA.

WHAT CHRISTIANS THERE HOPE TO

GAIN FROM HIS VISIT.

AND AGRICULTURAL JIHAD, LATEST

TACTICS FOR CEASING LAND AND HOW

THE ISRAELIS ARE FIGHTING BACK.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH."

A MILESTONE IN THE IMMIGRATION

DEBATE.

GOOD EVENING I AM MARK MARTIN.

SENATE HAS APPROVED A

COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM

BILL.

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE JOHN

BOEHNER SAYS HE WON'T TAKE UP

THE SENATE BILL.

HIS GOAL IS TO CREATE HIS OWN

BILL THAT REFLECTS THE WILL OF

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS TONIGHT'S TOP

STORY.

THE BILL AS AMENDED IS

PASSED.

WHEN THIS LEGISLATION BECOMES

LAW IT WILL MAKE US STRONGER.

HERE IN AMERICA, GENERATIONS

OF DREAMS WILL FINALLY COME TO

PASS.

THAT IS WHY I SUPPORT THIS

REFORM.

NOT JUST BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN

IMMIGRANTS BUT BECAUSE I BELIEVE

IN AMERICA EVEN MORE.

REPORTER: SENATE BILL

INCLUDES PATH TO CITIZENSHIP FOR

MILLIONS OF IMMIGRANTS, EXPANDS

VISAS AND CARRIES TOUGHEST

ENFORCEMENT MEASURES AND HELP

SECURE THE U.S.-MEXICO BORDER

INCREASING NUMBER OF AGENTS AND

AMOUNT OF SENSING.

NO GUARANTEE THE BORDER WILL BE

SECURE BECAUSE SO MUCH IS LEFT

UP TO THE DISCRETION OF THE

HOMELAND SECURITY.

THERE IS NO WAY I CAN LOOK AT

MY CONSTITUENTS AND TELL THEM

TODAY'S ASSURANCES WON'T BECOME

TOMORROW'S DISAPPOINTS.

REPORTER: HOUSE REPUBLICANS

WANT TO MAKE SURE THEY AGREE.

PEOPLE HAVE TO HAVE

CONFIDENCE THE BORDER IS SECURE

BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE IS GOING TO

WORK.

OTHERWISE WE REPEAT THE MISTAKES

OF 1986.

REPORTER: IMMIGRATION BILL

NOW HEADS TO THE HOUSE.

MANY IN THE HOUSE ARE WORKING ON

THEIR OWN LEGISLATION

IMMIGRATION.

HOUSE SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER SAYS

THEY WON'T VOTE ON ANY BILL

UNTIL HE IS CERTAIN IT WILL

PASS, EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

IRS TARGETING OF CONSERVATIVE

GROUPS IS BACK IN THE HEADLINES,

HOUSE LAWMAKERS VOTED TO BRING

LOUIS LEARNER BACK SAYING SHE

GAVE UP HER RIGHT FOR SILENCE.

I THINK ALL OF US BOTH SIDES

OF THE AISLE WANT TO HEAR WHAT

MISS LEARNER HAS TO SAY AND GET

ON WITH THE INVESTIGATION THAT

UNDERLIES ALL OF THAT.

I THINK WE ALL HOPEFULLY ARE

JUST AS CONCERNED OF MAKING SURE

THIS COMMITTEE UPHOLDS THE

CONSTITUTION.

REPORTER: REPUBLICANS SAID

SHE WAIVED THAT RIGHT IN MAY.

WE ARE NOT HERE WITH REGARD

TO LOUIS LEARNER, WE ARE HERE

BECAUSE THERE ARE AMERICAN

CITIZENS WHO WERE AFFECTED BY

THE AGENCY THAT SHE OVERSAW WHO

USED THEIR AUTHORITY AND THE IRS

TO WHAT WE BELIEVE TO BE AN

OPPRESSIVE FASHION AGAINST WHAT

COULD BE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL

RIGHTS AND POTENTIALLY IN A

CRIMINAL FASHION.

REPORTER: NATIONAL POLLS SHOW

THREE OUT OF FOUR AMERICANS

BELIEVE THE IRS SHOULD BE

INVESTIGATED FOR TARGETING

POLITICAL GROUPS ESPECIALLY

AFTER ADMITTING GOING AFTER

GROUPS UNDER HER WATCH.

SENATOR RAND PAUL POINTED OUT

LEARNER HAS A LONG HISTORY OF

TARGETING CONSERVATIVES.

SHE WAS IN THE FEC 10 YEARS

AGO TELLING THE REPUBLICAN

CANDIDATE IF HE WOULD RUN FOR

OFFICE, SHE WOULD DROP THE

CHARGES.

HE SPENT $100,000 DEFENDING

HIMSELF.

REPORTER: WIDESPREAD IRS

HARASSMENT IS BOUND TO BE A HOT

SUBJECT IN MANY MORE HEARINGS ON

CAPITOL HILL, JOHN WAAGE, CBN

NEWS.

CHICK-FIL-A HOPING TO PREVENT

ANOTHER FIRE STORM AFTER

PRESIDENT TWEETED DISAPPOINTMENT

ON GAY MARRIAGE.

DAN CALFY REMOVED THE MESSAGE.

SAD DAY FOR OUR NATION, FOUNDING

FATHERS WOULD BE ASHAMED OF OUR

GENERATION.

FAST FOOD CHAIN SAID CALFY'S

VIEWS DO NOT NECESSARILY REFLECT

THE COMPANY'S RULES.

REVEREND ROB SHANK OF FAITH IN

ACTION, CHRISTIANS MAYBE

DISAPPOINTED BUT SHOULD NOT SHOW

CONTEMPT FOR GAYS.

TO PUT ANYBODY OUTSIDE THE

REACH OF OUR MINISTRIES

CONTRADICTS OUR MISSION.

WE HAVE TO CAREFULLY HOLD TO OUR

CORE PRINCIPLES, HOLD TO WHAT WE

KNOW TO BE THE TRUTH FOUND IN

THE WORD OF GOD WHILE AT THE

SAME TIME CONVEYING THOSE WAYS

IN A LOVING AND WELCOMING WAY.

SHANK WENT ON TO SAY WE DON'T

HAVE ORDINARY SINNERS AND

EXTRAORDINARY SINNERS, WE ARE

ALL IN NEED OF CHRIST AND

SALVATION.

AFTER THIS WEEK'S MONUMENTAL

REPORTING, AMERICA HAS HAD A

RAPID CHANGE OF HEART OVER GAY

MARRIAGE OVER THE PAST YEAR.

WE DID NOT GET TO THIS POINT

OVERNIGHT.

TEN YEARS AGO, CBN NEWS BEGAN A

SECRET STRATEGY.

LEADERS TO AGREE ON THE AGENDA.

THESE AUTHORITIES ARE REPORTEDLY

BRILLIANT RESEARCHERS, MARSHAL

RIGHTS IS VIRTUALLY WON.

THEMES.
