Gee……….proposed legislation filled with “pork” totally unrelated to the purpose of the legislation. What a shock!

“Immigration bill sprinkled with pet projects”

“South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham wants more visas for the meat  industry, a major employer in his state. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., pushed  for special treatment for Irish workers; his state is home to a large population  with Irish ancestry.

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio sought help for the cruise-ship industry, a big  business in his home state of Florida. And Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet of  Colorado wove in a boost for ski areas.”
