Gang of Eight Members Vote Against Amendment Securing Borders Before Amnesty
Townhall.com ^ | May 9, 2013 | Katie Pavlich

Posted on 05/09/2013 1:51:49 PM PDT by jazusamo

An amendment submitted by Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley requiring the security of the Nation's borders before granting amnesty to more than 11 million illegal immigrants, has been voted down by the Senate Judiciary Committee 6-12. Every Democrat on the Committee voted against the amendment.

The amendment:

Purpose: To prohibit the granting of registered provisional immigrant status until the Secretary has maintained effective control of the borders for 6 months and to apply border security strategies to all border sectors.

Gang of Eight Republican Sens. Jeff Flake and Lindsey Graham sit on the Committee and voted against the amendment. Democratic Sens. Dick Durbin and Chuck Schumer, also Gang of Eight and Committee members, voted against the amendment.


TOPICS: Constitution/Conservatism; Government; News/Current Events; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: aliens; amnesty; bordersecurity; gangof8; illegals; immigration
Not a surprise, they want amnesty but not secure borders.

They love to bring up the 1986 amnesty bill...

Enforce the immigration control in the 1986 bill FIRST ... then after enforcing it at damned near 100% enforcement level for 10 years THEN maybe, just maybe we can start talking about another damned amnesty...

Hey! Criminals are people too!
And some of them vote!

And we mustn’t hurt their innocent families!
And some of them vote!

And conditions are bad in Mexico!
And some of them vote!

And they are largely uneducated!
And some of them vote!

Our elected representatives!
Some of them sell their souls and their country for a vote!

Will Rubio try to make ammends for this? Or is he all in with the GOPE? Either way, he’s just another Rat.

Dear Gang of Eight,
Thanks for proving just how corrupt you vote chasing hacks really are by killing this amendment.
Sincerly,
some one who won’t be voting for any of your sorry asses again.

Agreed...That’d be good for Americans but bad for illegals, that's why it won't happen.

THE BORDERS WILL NEVER BE SEUCRE - THE RATS NEED TO KEEP FEEDING THEIR DEPENENCY BASE WITH NEW BLOOD FOR DECADES TO COME. BUSINESSES ALSO LIKE THE CHEAP LABOR THAT ARE UNABLE TO SUE THEM.

No border security. So all that bullcrap we hear from Rubio about secure borders first is just that.... Bullcrap.

We have no real friends and are completely unrepresented on this. We are on our own on immigration.

Like Ubama, they want open borders.
Because, after all, "unless you are 'native American', you came here from somewhere else."

Can you believe that sick scumbag, the African communist Ubama, actually said something so inane?

I can’t believe a POTUS would say something that lame but not surprised about him saying it. He’s the sorriest excuse of a president to ever inhabit the WH.

if these senators and this administration refuse to secure our borders from the active invasion from the south and given the negative impact illegal immigration has on the US tax payer, isn’t that deraliction of official duty as prescribed by their oath of office thus cause for immediate removal from office? If it’s not, it damn sure should be!

South Carolina...need to primary out that Amnesty Liberal Lindsey Graham

I agree...Immediate removal from office, tar and feathers warranted at the very least.

The Dems want more democrat voters. The GOP wants to help their business friends with cheap labor.

The 8 gangsters need to be thrown out of the Republic Party. So do many of the modernist others.

Now! I'm not kidding; please.

They certainly are.

I pray Boehner and the House Republicans are getting the message so they can kill this if (when) it passes the Senate. They have got to stand against this treasonous bill.

This can't be. The Gang of 8 is running non-stop (it seems) PSAs in Texas, using RINO Rubio as a spokesman, saying the exact opposite.

This is what happens when you allow RINO’s to mate with Democrats.

I'm thankful we found out now before we invested time and money towards getting him elected president.

Rubio has been carrying the Gop-e water/let's help the libs on this.

Anyone can see that now. That bill coming up should be opposed.
