Here is the latest update on Senate immigration reform bill news. On Thursday, an alleged ′breakthrough′ on a border security deal is claimed to have been made. If true, this could help passage of the legislation in the U.S. Senate and ease the potential defeat in the House. A more rational proposal by Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) was voted down, which would have required 75% enforcement along the border between the United States and Mexico before any other provision of immigration reform would take affect. The new proposal, stemming from Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), would double the number of border guards by adding 20,000 to their ranks. Also, it would require that 700 miles of fencing to be erected along the southern border and provide for using unmanned drones to patrol and track any intrusions. There would also be alleged improvements in the E-Verify system to check new employees. Sounds nice? Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) believes that this new compromise is the ticket to getting the immigration bill passed.
