Why bother. The President and others are doing everything they can to get the prisoners released. How is Congress passing a bill going to do anything. Besides once the Republicans vote for it, that bill will never be heard from again. It gives the appearance that they've done something. Nice try, but we, the people, are getting wise to your tricks!! Congress, don't waste your time. Why not deal with some of the huge problems we have in this country, like increasing minimum wages, more jobs, affordable education, getting the Koch Brothers OUT of politics, infrastructure repairs, addressing education in the inner cities, reviving slum districts....and the list how's on for miles!!
