Bipartisan Immigration bill filled with pork.

Buried within the 844 pages of the bipartisan immigration bill -- are pet provisions of the senators who crafted it.

South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham wants more visas for the meat industry, a major employer in his state.

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., pushed for special treatment for Irish workers; his state is home to a large population with Irish ancestry.

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio sought help for the cruise-ship industry, a big business in his home state of Florida.

Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado wove in a boost for ski areas.
