U.S. Senator Mike Lee took to the Senate floor to call the amnesty-lite “Gang of Eight” immigration reform bill an “enormous disappointment.”
According to Lee, the cosponsors of the bill, including his friend in the Senate, Senator Marco Rubio, “misled” the country about what exactly was in the bill, saying that the talking points never matched the reality of what was in the bill. ”
The Washington Times reported earlier this week that ICE officers and Sheriffs were “directly misled” by Senator Rubio by promising to bolster interior immigration enforcement.
The ‘Gang of Eight’ bill, which is now laden with wasteful political pork spending, something Senator Rubio had campaigned against and promoted while in the Senate, is expected to pass this week by a margin of a least 60 votes. (Video)
The bill we have before us today is an enormous disappointment. The American people deserve better… This is an embarrassment to this institution and an assault on the principles of democracy –Senator Mike Lee
