Reforming Immigration Reform
In Friday’s Wall Street Journal, Marco Rubio wrote that he welcomes the process of amending the Gang of Eight’s immigration bill, which begins with a Judiciary Committee markup this week and proceeds over the coming weeks in the Senate. Meanwhile, a group in the House is preparing its own bill, and will no doubt seek to learn some lessons from the Senate bill’s reception and the process of amending it.
It’s good to see that Rubio, unlike the other members of the gang, is open to amendments that might address some of the key problems with the bill.
Over on the homepage today, I propose five kinds of amendments that I think would simultaneously make the bill more worthy of passage and help it to pass.
