(I put this together after the fact, so it is based on my tweets without additional context on what happened in between. These tweets only represent my personal opinions.)
- Before markup began, here was the post about what to expect: http://immigrationimpact.com/2013/05/08/senate-immigration-bill-mark-up-what-to-expect/ …
- Here's the full list of amendments that passed on the first day: http://immigrationimpact.com/2013/05/10/senate-committee-mark-up-of-immigration-bill-begins-with-border-security-amendments/ …
- At the outset of markup, Leahy kept his comments brief so as to not take up a lot of time, but Grassley had more to say. His concerns about repeating 1986 mistakes were a common theme over the five days.
- (If I remember correctly, Cornyn was talking about immigrants working in the U.S. as a reason the immigration system has failed because they're here.)
