PajamasMedia, a blog/op-ed operation, says it has obtained a memo that predicts that Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev) will use "an unprecedented combination of legislative procedures to shove through the immigration bill today".
The memo was written by a former Secretary for the Majority and Minority in the U.S. Senate, Elizabeth B. Letchworth. She calls this potential move by the Senate Majority Leader the "Reid scenario". In an e-mail she writes:
“The Reid scenario of offering amendments in strategic places in order to block any and all other amendments will commence when they return from their weekly party caucuses @ 2:15PM. [Today, Eastern] At the end of the amendment. offering process Sen. Reid will file cloture on the bill.”To read the memo in full and to understand which procedures Reid could use and how, go here.
