The Grassley provision would have required that the entire southern border be under effective control for six months before illegal immigrants could register for provisional legal status. The current legislation requires only that a comprehensive strategy for border security be in place.
What the hell are they afraid of???!!!
Grassley's amendment is more than reasonable on its face, perhaps even a little timid. Six Months!!!
Rejecting such a modest amendment suggests that the Gang of Eight has no intention of the border being brought under control for ANY period of time.
