Amnesty Cannot Be Improved
Washington – Senators have filed hundreds of amendments to the Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act (S.744), also known as the Gang of Eight’s bill. As the Senate begins of consideration of many of those amendments, Heritage Action released the following statement from chief executive officer Michael A. Needham:
Unless the Gang of Eight is willing to reconsider their legalization-first approach, their legislation is beyond repair. Amnesty cannot be improved, and amendments that change the bill’s post-legalization language are simply talking points disguised as policy. Heritage Action will oppose amendments that, if adopted, will serve as political cover for those Senators seeking to justify their support for amnesty.
