It's one big baby: 844 pages of immigration reform legislation is now incubating on Capitol Hill, tended by Sen. Marco Rubio and seven other nervous parents. The so-called Gang of Eight senators who wrote the bill is assuring press, public, advocates and each other that they won't rush the bill along without fair hearings, or shroud it in mystery. Critics, though, aren't buying it.
President Obama's choice "provides no reassurance to the American people that the government will enforce our immigration laws," Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform said in a statement. "That lack of confidence must halt any consideration of immigration legislation in the House of Representatives."
"Having spent months working on this bill in secret, there is now a clear effort afoot to make sure that the American people do not find out what is in it until after it becomes law," said Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform.
