Senators: Don’t vote for Schumer’s amnesty bill. #DCIntervention
Hoeven-Corker Amendment: Even worse than original bill.
Ask your Senators if they actually read the 1200 page amendment over the weekend.
Hoeven-Corker Amendment gives total discretion to Secretary of Homeland Security. Just what we don’t need. #DCIntervention
What’s @SenBobCorker’s idea of border security? Handing off responsibility to unelected bureaucrats.
Does anyone believe the Senate amnesty bill will actually improve border security? #BrokenPromises
The Senate amnesty bill. Another train wreck. #DCIntervention.
More than 70% of Americans oppose amnesty bill and demand border security. Why is Congress ignoring us?
Senate amnesty bill won’t yield border security. #DCIntervention
11M new people in the health care system? Amnesty will be another Obamacare train wreck. #DCIntervention
Congress thinks another amnesty without border security is a good idea. Americans disagree. #DCIntervention
Amnesty bill just like Obamacare – lots of power and authority for unelected bureaucrats. #DCIntervention.
.@SenBobCorker’s amendment is a political ploy. Where’s the border security?
Sample Facebook Post:
The Senate is expected to vote on the amnesty bill, S. 744, this week. The bill provides amnesty and immediate access to welfare programs to illegal immigrants, including those who have committed serious crimes. Adding insult to injury, the bill offers nothing in the way of border security, which will guarantee that we will see future influxes of illegal immigrants, perpetuating the need for another amnesty in a few decades.
Senator Corker of Tennessee has introduced a so-called “border security” amendment, which has the support of Sen. Schumer and the GOP establishment. But the amendment is a very clear attempt by the GOP establishment in DC to provide “cover” for their amnesty vote. Corker’s amendment provides additional funding for border security, but does not have the necessary accountability measures to ensure the money will actually produce results. This is the Republicans’ solution – throw more money at a problem and hope for the best? The Corker Amendment, while hailed by establishment Republicans as the answer to our border security problems, actually weakens our border security enforcement and controls. No wonder the border patrol agents are so opposed to this bill and this amendment.
Senator Corker may think he has found a clever way of distracting the public from how damaging this bill is, but Americans learned from Obamacare that the fine print in legislation matters. Our immigration policy, with implications for national security and the national deficit and spending, is too important for the Senate to play games. Shame on Senator Corker and his Republican allies for attempting to pass a massive amnesty bill with a cheap political ploy that does nothing to secure the border.
