During opening remarks on the Senate floor Wednesday, Minority Leader Harry Reid said Democrats are willing to move forward on the refugee bill, but that they seek four amendments on the legislation. “I think that we have the makings of an agreement here, at least the way I understood the republican leader. We agreed that refugees should go through a robust screening process,” Reid said. “We want four amendments to change the underlying bill. We’re not going to be demanding days of debate time.”
