    Interesting 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 become law.

    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.
