No May Deadline for Immigration Bill

By The News May 22, 2007

After four hours of discussion Monday, the Senate decided to extend its Memorial Day deadline next Monday to vote on the latest immigration bill, the New York Times reported Tuesday. Many Senators aren’t buying what some have called the "last best chance" at compromising on immigration reform. Many plan on making major alterations to the bill that has been accused of being created behind closed doors. So the time delay makes sense for politicians and activists. We can all use it to build better arguments and learn the ins and out of the bill that is more than 300 pages.
