Update on immigration issue...

The Senate's new bill includes hiring 14 thousand Border Patrol agents, increasing detention centers to hold illegal immigrants, and expanding an already costly fence by 370 miles.
A groundswell of community groups now argue that Congress would do better to pass no bill at all than to adopt a bill that reconciles the just-passed Senate and December-approved House of Representatives bills.
My prediction is that no bill will be passed in this session of Congress.
