If you thought the problem with the Senate’s Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill was that it wasn’t enough like a straight-up amnesty, there’s good news:
Counting on the support of the new Democratic majority in Congress, Democratic lawmakers and their Republican allies are working on measures that could place millions of illegal immigrants on a more direct path to citizenship than would a bill that the Senate passed in the spring.This may seem likely to attract a new wave of illegal immigrants, but that will be mitigated by beefed-up enforcement. Oh, wait…
The lawmakers are considering abandoning a requirement in the Senate bill that would compel several million illegal immigrants to leave the United States before becoming eligible to apply for citizenship.
The lawmakers are also considering denying financing for 700 miles of fencing along the border with Mexico, a law championed by Republicans that passed with significant Democratic support.Never mind.
