The Senate is rushing to the finish line on the Gang of Eight bill, setting up a key vote Monday that could clear the way to final passage of the immigration overhaul by the end of next week.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Friday that his chamber will hold a procedural vote on the border-security agreement crafted by Republican Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee and John Hoeven of North Dakota on Monday at 5:30 p.m.
The timing meets a goal long set by Senate Democratic leaders to finish working on the bill a significant rewrite of the nations immigration laws before the July 4 recess.

Way to go, Democrats.
This is a really classic cram-down.
Good Lord in heaven.
Rubio is a con man. Rand Paul may not be far behind and it depends on what he does the next year out.
By July 4th. Another slap in the face of Americans by the commie lib public servants. Adios 4th of July. Buenos dias Cinco de Mayo.
Wow.... 4 July.. can they be any more in-your-face about it?
“Here, America... a nice, fat ‘FU’ on ‘Independence day!’”
I’ll say this about Rand, at least he is trying to oppose this Immigration Bill and is proposing amendments to it. But it must have happened when he read the tea leaves. Because has been giving mixed signals and had his won Immigration Bill that he talked about to La Raza.
John Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died on the 4th of July. I guess it’s only appropriate that America die on the 4th of July too.
This senate bill, if passed, is DOA when it gets to the House!!!
On the very Day One America News starts as well. So the new conservative channel won’t be able to do much about this.

How obnoxious can they get. If Rubio is working for oh weekly forget it
The border will be like Black Friday ,a stampede
I listened to Betsy McCaughy (??) tear this bill apart, on Mark Levin's show, yesterday. It's nothing but a payback to SEIU (new *citizens* will provide cheap labor for the hospitality industry) and groups like ACORN will roll it out as a "civil rights" department.
It pretty much picks up where OCare left off :(
Low earning AMERICAN workers should be outraged by this bill, as it replaces them with amnestied illegals.
The Gang of Eight (O, what a parcel o’ rogues) don’t want Senators going home to hear from voters over the holiday before the vote. They know, just as they did with ObamaCare, that the people do not want this but they are determined to shove it down our throats, unread and unconsidered, and then swan about like they did something good. Then, too late, they will learn the consequences of what they voted for.
Harry Reid’s MO: Always push through a bill around a holiday, for the extra pressure.
The end of America will happen by July 4th? How meaningful.
Found more stuff through commie blaster:
Seems the site doesn’t keep an archive beyond a few days of every story they post on the main page. They have fewer stuff in the archives of more communist take over news.
