@tabunoInteresting comment. How do you know what's in the bill?
Only the 8, The Chamber and AFL-CIO have any input. The rest of the Senate is
in the dark.So, what's your inside track on the content of this bill?
There's probably little in the way that substantive amendments to any
forthcoming bipartisan immigration reform could be made that would not
significantly alter the fine balanced achieved by the current diversity of U.S.
Senators. Most likely any real changes would probably destroy any possibility
of an immigration reform bill could be passed by Congress. Thus, the goal such
changes would be to poison the proposed bill in bad faith. The fewer amendments
allowed on this piece of legislation the better if it is to pass Congress and
Let's just hope this bill doesn't entail some sort of rewards for
illegal behavior. When the last amnesty bill was passed more than 2 decades ago,
it was with an explicit promise that there would be no more future amnesty bills
again... as some sort concession to conservatives at that time. It's funny
how time and political expediency can often cloud memories. The
worst kind of politics is when politicians sell out their beliefs and their
constituency for the hope of future votes from other sources. Just another
reason why term limits would be a good idea.
