The article reports on the immigration amendments filed to the U.S. Senate immigration bill. The measure, sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Majority Whip Dick Durbin, could help cities land hosting rights to major international events, including the 2016 Olympics. Reid and Durbin hope that the amendments, which are all intended to make U.S. visa and entry procedures speedier and more efficient, could receive floor time to the immigration bill.
