Senate aides said amendments were rejected if either side felt they would shatter the deal.The carefully plotted orchestration was highlighted when the committee debated a Sessions amendment to bar unauthorized immigrants from receiving public benefits until they earned green cards, which would take a decade.As the voting began, Schumer leaned over to an aide and whispered: “Do our Republicans have a pass on this one?”
