The Senate intends to vote within the next two weeks on S.744, Senator Schumer’s amnesty bill. Unfortunately, the bill resembles Obamacare in many respects. At over 1,000 pages, the bill is weighty like Obamacare, and just like the health care law, no one in Congress has bothered to read it.
When the Senate bill sponsors known as the “Gang of Eight” have been asked about the content of the bill, they have made several incorrect statements. When asked if the bill strengthens border security, the Gang of Eight has assured us that the bill is a “border security first” bill. But, in reality, the bill is an “amnesty first” bill. There are zero firm border security requirements in the bill. Sen. Rubio, whose name is often mentioned as a Presidential candidate for 2016, seems to be the most confused about the bill’s content. Either Sen. Rubio and his colleagues have not read the bill, or they are wilfully misleading American voters about this bill.
As taxpayers, we pay the salaries for each of the Gang of Eight Senators. We expect them to read this bill and to understand the full implications of it before voting on it.
