    Any word on when they expect to start debating the amendments and then move to the cloture vote?

    What is your opinion on the chances of the bill to pass this time?

    IMO , there will be no bill, this is just showing off that at least they are trying to do something, what we will see IF is another security first ,Xenophobic seal the border kind of bill.

    This whole thing is a show, because of the Senate's poor performance and becoming another do nothing congress, they should pretend that they are doing something, but they already made up their mind that there will be no Comprehensive Immigration Reform, not until another 5 to 10 years if hate subsides and with a new President in the White House.

    In your summary of Section 508 you say:
    "Raises per country limits from 7% to 10%. Per country limits don't apply to pre-May 1,2005 applicants."

    Per-country limits don't apply to pre-May 2005 FAMILY applicants ONLY. No such luck for EB applicants.

    It is ironical that they are debating about illegal immigration but none of the senators are talking about reducing the EB backlogs.They are the real losers if this bill passes.
