The article "Immigration bills concern some experts" says:
Three key elements of the Senate legislation raise particular concern... [1.] A permanent doubling of today's historically high levels of legal immigration, from roughly 1 million a year to 2 million a year. The provision has attracted surprisingly little attention.While that has been covered here in the past, it's worth pointing it out again. The article has more on some of the downsides of the Senate's plan. Leaving aside the affects of their plan, if the Senate seriously considers something that's unworkable aren't they calling into question their ability to lead?
