Senate Immigration Bill Markup Day

Posted By on Thu, May 9, 2013 at 9:00 AM

This is a big day for the comprehensive immigration reform package put forward the by the Gang of Eight: The Senate Judiciary Committee is set to start hearing proposed amendments to legislation. Talking Points Memo rounds up the big issues:


On Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee will begin examining about 300 proposed amendments to the bipartisan immigration bill, kicking off a new phase in the reform effort. While most are unlikely to pass, the amendments give a valuable preview as to which issues the final battle over immigration will be fought hardest over. You can expect to see lawmakers come back to some of these same debates many times over before any kind of legislation hits the president’s desk.
