After many U.S. senators got earfuls from constituents about an immigration bill during their Memorial Day break, they'll vote Tuesday on more than a dozen amendments.
Alabama Republican Jeff Sessions remains a staunch opponent of the legislation. On Monday, he released a list of 20 loopholes he said would not establish a functioning immigration system in the future.
This bill is an absolute mess. I keep hearing about how Americans are demanding immigration reform, how any bill is better than no bill. I disagree. If the government can't enforce the immigration laws we have now, how on earth can they enforce this one? Ain't gonna happen.
“I am deeply concerned about the numerous loopholes we have found in this legislation. They are more than technical errors, but rather symptoms of a fundamentally flawed piece of legislation that stands no chance of actually fixing our broken immigration system,” Sessions said. “Many of the loopholes are indicative of a desire not to have the system work.”
I'm deeply concerned, too Senator. Thank you for speaking out and backing your "
empty political rhetoric" up with facts.
