WASHINGTON, D.C. -

Congress is closer than ever before to passing an immigration reform package.

But CNN reports there's fear in Washington that amendments added by Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy could derail the bill.

Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont, filed three amendments Tuesday night, including a controversial one recognizing same-sex marriages in which one spouse is an American citizen and the other is in the country illegally.

It's unclear whether the Senate will vote on the amendment.
