With amendments, Senate immigration bill soars past 1,000 pages


This bill is getting ridiculous and quickly becoming a liberal monstrosity. Any republicans who support this are in danger of being primaried.
Check it out:

After two weeks of amendments, S. 744, the bipartisan immigration reform bill voted out of the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday night, is now more than 1,000 pages long, according to a committee aide. When the bill was first submitted to the Senate, it was just 844 pages.

And the vast majority of those new pages have made the bill far more liberal than when it was first introduced. Of the 81 Democratic amendments offered during Senate Judiciary Committee mark-up, 80 were accepted, and just one was rejected.

The pro-amnesty Republicans on the committee — Jeff Flake of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Orrin Hatch of Utah — had even better luck. They submitted 15 amendments, and all 15 were adopted.
