The so-called "gang of 8" senators rolled out their 844-page immigration "reform" bill Thursday.  For supporters the timing couldn't have been better since the search for the Boston Marathon bombers pretty much crowded it off the nation's front pages and news programs.  Then the shoot-outs Friday ensured that the details of the bill wouldn't make it into the public domain in more than a technical way.

Wait, isn't publicity something that's normally sought after?  Normally, yes, but in this case the bill's supporters actually don't want publicity, because their so-called "reform" bill would provide amnesty to at least 11 million illegal immigrants.

Yep, amnesty--as I've been telling you for a month.  It also provides for the expedited awarding of "green cards" to roughly 4.5 million relatives of those granted amnesty.  It would also increase the inflow of blue-collar and professional workers to more than 1 million per year.

So the bill will recruit roughly 11 million more Democratic party voters.  And now for the "reform" part:

So as you see, the bill is tough but even-handed and fair.

Oh, and during the televised senate press conference the head of the union representing Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers tried to ask New York senator Chuck Schumer a question about the bill.  Tried three times, and Schumer ignored him.

Well, didn't completely ignore him, as security personnel grabbed him and escorted him out of the conference room.

See how democracy works, kids?  It's that open, "transparent" government Lord Obama promised would happen under his benevolent reign.  It allows open, robust debate on all topics--at least those it approves of.  And anyone can ask questions of the leaders.  Of course they don't have to answer, and if they think you're gonna ask one that might make them look...bad...they'll have you thrown out.  But you can certainly ask.

I suspect the Founders are spinning in their graves at the state of the U.S. government in 2013.
