Hey, Graham - how did that billion dollars for Alaska fisheries get in there?
Former New York lieutenant governor Betsy McCaughey has actually read the monstrosity, and here are a few points of what shes found:
1. Administration of the immigration system is going to be handed-off to pre-approved non-governmental "community organizations" (Think ACORN and La Raza). These organizations will be responsible for providing education about American history and culture as well as help filling out and filing immigration paperwork (and register as democrats).
2. The border patrol will be placed under the jurisdiction of the "Office of Civil Rights". The bill gives this "Office of Civil Rights" the ability to effective prevent Border Patrol from actually enforcing immigration law in almost all scenarios.
3. The bill will make it vastly more difficult to actually deport people and the DOJ can chose to pay for the legal defense of all people subjected to deportation.
4. Using conflicting language the bill essentially mandates that the number of legal immigrants allowed into the country each year is doubled.
Gee, thanks Sen Grahamnesty!
