One of the most essential items on the immigration reform agenda should be – Secure the border first.
Not so in the eyes of Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and his bipartisan “Gang of Eight”, who claim to have reached a deal on immigration reform.
And to demonstrate just how ass backwards this gang is, Schumer had this to say regarding the legislation (h/t Jeff Sessions):
“We’ve come to a basic agreement, which is that first, people will be legalized. In other words, not citizens, but they’ll be allowed to work, come out of the shadows, travel. Then, we will make sure the border is secure. And we have specific metrics that are in the bill. I’m not going to get into what they are…”
Legalization first. National security somewhere down the line.
Future Democrat voters first. National security later.
Politics first. National security when we get to it.
