Senate Bill Creates Path for Undocumented Immigrants and a Radically Militarized Border

The Senate has approved a long-awaited immigration reform bill that creates a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants while imposing unprecedented new measures for border security. It would spend $46 billion to nearly double the number of border agents to 40,000, expand the use of drones, and construct around 700 miles of border fencing. Republicans introduced the border amendment in a bid to win their colleagues' support, prompting criticism from a number of immigrant rights groups who say the added "security" requirements are so extreme they undermine the bill overall.
