The article focuses on the comprehensive immigration reform bill in the U.S., which conservative senators took to the U.S. Senate floor to correct various shortcomings. U.S. Senator John Cornyn was alarmed that the grand bargain would grant amnesty, green cards and citizenship to gang members, sex offenders, alien smugglers who use firearms and absconders. Senator Jim DeMint wanted to require illegal immigrants granted amnesty under the agreement to buy minimal catastrophic health policies.
