Senate Must Modify Filibuster Rule to Pass CIR

"Without a softening of the filibuster rules, we're likely to witness, as we already have seen, the resuscitation of previous small-bore CRI proposals that merely traded legalization with a path to citizenship and modest future flows of temporary workers for greater border and worksite enforcement.  While these measures are necessary in any CRI bill, they don't go nearly far enough to address America's 21st Century needs." - Angelo A. Paparelli, Dec. 1, 2012.
