Posted on 06/24/2014 12:14:24 AM PDT by ObamahatesPACoal
Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) is boldly defending his vote for the Senate "Gang Of Eight" immigration bill as he campaigns for re-election in Tennessee, after his Tea Party-backed primary challenger Joe Carr has made the issue a central point in his campaign.
In an emailed statement to Breitbart News, Alexander issued a strong defense of his support for immigration reform first published in the Knoxville News Sentinel.
"We have amnesty today, Alexander said. "Turning your head while 11 million people are already here illegally is perpetual amnesty. I voted along with 67 other United States senators to end perpetual amnesty.
Last year, Alexander was one of fourteen Republican senators who voted in favor of the Gang of Eight immigration bill led by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

Of course he is wrong in his argument.
King said the Senate bill as it is written will amount to perpetual and retroactive amnesty.
It sends an invitation to people who have been deported in the past: reapply, come back to the United States, we really didnt mean it, King said.
FU LA, you worthless DemocRat.
New and/or old laws mean nothing when the executive branch doesn’t enforce them. These moron congress people should be raging that the laws they made are being ignored. Instead they want to make new laws pretending they won’t be ignored this time... F’ing brilliant... Either you demand your constitutional authority be honored or you’ve given it away.
