Study sets off immigration bill squabble

FILE - In this March 18, 2013 file photo the Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., asks a question during the committees's hearing on immigration reform on Capitol Hill in Washington. About the proposed bill Sessions says, “The supporters promoted the bill aggressively before anybody saw the language, and certain Republicans and conservative voices sort of held their fire, but that's beginning to change.” Sessions was a leading voice in the Senate against the bill in 2007 and is reprising that role this time around, making floor speeches, issuing press releases and holding briefing calls with reporters to argue that the bill would unlock a much larger volume of immigration into the U.S. than advertised, to the detriment of U.S. workers and jobs.
