Sen. Sessions on Who Wrote (And Understands) Amnesty Bill: Special Interest Groups and Their Lawyers
During the Senate debate Tuesday of the Gang of Eight amnesty bill, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) explained that even the Gang of Eight – the group of lawmakers who supposedly devised the legislation – doesn’t truly understand the complex and confusing content of the bill:
Union groups, special interest groups, agricultural groups, business groups, meat-packers groups, and the immigration lawyers association wrote the bill.
They know what the impacts of this bill are, Sen. Sessions explained, but the Gang of Eight has not read the 1,000 page bill, and they do not truly understand the implications.
