Summary of All Amendments to Immigration Bill Approved on 5/9 by Senate Immigration Subcommittee

Rate this Entry

The Senate Judiciary Committee met all day and considered 36 amendments to S. 744. Some were clearly poison pills deisgned to make the bill unpassable and all of those failed. 21 were passed. The day began by passing a technical corrections amendment that replaced all of the originally introduced S.744. The bill is substantively very similar to the original bill with a few substantive changes. That language was released about a week ago so no suprises there.


Senator Leahy then went through three dozen amendments all relating to the preliminary part of the immigration bill dealing with triggers as well as the border enforcement provisions in Title I of the bill. The other titles of the bill will be dealt with in mark ups scheduled throughout the month.


Below is my summary of each of the amendments passed today. The full text of each can be found here.

    "In order for this bill to become law, it will have to be improved to bolster border security and enforcement even further and to limit the federal government's discretionary power in applying the law." -- Marco Rubio

    OK, how do you limit the federal government's (he should have said executive branch) discretionary power in applying the law? As we've seen, the current one acts like there's no limit to his "discretion." Let's hear it, Rubio.

    Great job, as always. Thank you, Greg.

    Jack, we are a nation of men, not of computers. Someone has to be vested with discretion when it comes to applying the law to specific circumstances. If you don't trust the current President to do the right thing you should have worked harder to elect Romney!

    Immigration reform may already be DOA.

    M/s. Schumer & Durbin in all likelihood will vote against the gay amendment. Just look at how M/s. Flake & Graham voted yesterday to protect the bill. It will be interesting to see if M/s. Grassley, Cruz & Sessions vote in favor, thus endangering the bill.
