In an LA Times op-ed, Sen. Jeff Sessions (one of the only good ones fighting the fight) discusses the ‘Gang of Eight’ immigration bill:
The so-called Gang of Eight immigration plan now being considered by the Senate fails to live up to every major promise made by its sponsors. Far from improving the immigration system, their 1,000-page proposal would exacerbate many of its flaws. It would dangerously undermine future enforcement while imposing substantial burdens on taxpayers and taking jobs and pay from U.S. workers…
On every major front, this legislation fails to deliver on its core promises. It delivers only for the special-interest groups who helped write it. Should it pass, it would represent the ultimate triumph of the Washington elite over the everyday citizen to whom Congress properly owes its loyalty.
With the rapidly proliferating distractions of Scandalistan consuming all of the air in the room, causing minimal coverage of the immigration bill, The Organizer (in Alinksy-ite fashion) is pushing hard to get the immigration bill passed, while nobody is looking.
Let’s hope Sessions can stop this thing.
