Quote of note
"We have come up with a fair bill where no one gets everything they want, but at the end of the day, it will mean dramatic improvement for the American economy, the American people, and will make our immigration policy much more in sync with what is good for jobs and America." - Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., one of the eight authors of a bipartisan immigration bill. While Sen. Chuck Grassley's amendment barring anyone from seeking citizenship until the border was secured for six months was defeated, authors did compromise on other amendments including making the new security standards apply to the entire border and not just high-risk areas, according to the Associated Press. The Judiciary Committee convened today for the first of two weeks of meetings to review 300-some amendments aimed at reforming immigration law.
News to know
The body of suspected Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev has finally been buried, CNN reports. Police in Worcester, Mass., said the body was entombed in an undisclosed location and was no longer in Worcester. Tsarnaev's body went unclaimed for nearly two weeks, as one of Tsarnaev's U.S.-based uncles worked with a funeral director to decide what to do with his body. Protestors picketed the funeral home, objecting to Tsarnaev's burial in the city. The city manager of Cambridge, where Tsarnaev lived, said he would not allow the body to be buried there. Tsarnaev's parents would not fly his body back to their home in the Russian region of Dagestan, citing passport issues.
