One vote on an amendment and one quote by Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was all it took to rip the facade away from the so-called comprehensive immigration reform package.
The vote? A 57-43 defeat of a proposal by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) that would have prohibited illegal aliens from getting any kind of legal status, until the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) could demonstrate it had “effective control” of the border for six months. The quote? “This clearly would undo the entire theme and structure of the immigration bill,” said Schumer. “It will take years and years until the border is secure.”
It doesn’t get any clearer than that, America.
