C’s the bad guy all right.
Dump him first chance ya get.
Cornyn voted for Amnesty before he voted against it.
Our immigration system is not broken, it’s just not enforced.
Why should our representatives not merely reinstitute the lawful system, rather than try to cobble together a new one of which only illegal residents will approve?
“...a more appropriate topic for Congress...”
How about impeachment? Balanced Budget? Debt ceiling?
Nothing to debate on immigration just enforce the law.
