A Vermont Senator's amendments to the Immigration Reform Package could derail the bill's progress in the Senate. Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy filed three amendments Tuesday night to the immigration bill, including a controversial amendment involving gay rights.

The Senator from Vermont proposed recognizing same-sex marriages in which one spouse is an American, saying the amendment would "remove discrimination from our immigration system." It's unclear whether the Senate will vote on the amendment.
