Republican Senators Chuck Grassley (IA), Jeff Sessions (AL) and Pat Roberts (KS) have asked the Gang of 8 repeatedly for information on the taxpayer-paid cost of benefits to illegals who suddenly become legal or put their foot ‘on the path’ to citizenship. Not surprisingly, there are no answers. Unbelievably, Rubio’s spokesperson replied that once the legislation “is completed, we will ask for an in-depth, dynamic study of its long term benefits and costs.” The legislation is completed now, at least at the committee level, and Senator Patrick Leahy has promised to ram-it through. Republicans are neutered – no time to read the mammoth bill, and only one hearing scheduled, with Janet Napolitano the sole witness. This is your U.S. Senate at work.
“As we discovered through several oversight requests from the Agriculture, Budget, and Judiciary Committees, existing federal immigration law designed to protect taxpayers is not enforced by this administration,” they wrote. “One of the biggest challenges facing any reform of our nation’s immigration laws is the refusal of this administration to enforce the laws already on the books.” Read the letter from Grassley, Session and Roberts at Daily Caller
Your fun trivia for the day:
“The Democrats have already agreed to partially repeal Obamacare for illegal immigrants, which is a key concession. Any suggestion that this legislation will extend welfare to illegal immigrants is simply false.”
If you are still laughing in another 5 minutes, SNAP OUT OF IT!
