A loose alliance of business and political groups has spent almost $1.5 billion since late 2007 to rewrite the nationís immigration law according to a new report.
The flood of money hired 3,136 lobbyists at 678 lobbying groups to pass one or more of 987 small or large bills, said the March 25 report from the Sunlight Foundation.
