Comment: Amendment Marathon Begins


The Senate Judiciary Committee began its consideration of the 300+ amendments to the Senate immigration bill S. 744. Reuters reports that the committee accepted 21 relatively modest amendments which do not substantially change the original bill, and defeated 11 amendments, many of which were from the bill's opponents. Our bloggers are actively commenting on the amendment process: Greg Siskind provides a summary of all the 21 amendments that passed; Lory Rosenberg comments on the Grassley 17 amendment restricting judicial review, and Chris Musillo is tracking the Senate Judiciary Committee. Please see their bloggings below, and as always let us know your thoughts by writing to us at editor@ilw.com.
