Wow, now Corker is pleading ignorance on his repackaged immigration bill. Appears as though Las Vegas gets a nice prize courtesy of the bill/

Corker just wants his name on an amendment to "Historic" legislation.

He hasn't read the 2100 pages that he attached his 100 page amendment to.

It's all historic and stuff and his financial backers tell him to get some skin in the game - do something...anything.

The below link very specifically outlines why we should not trust the promises of politicians on securing our borders. They need to "JUST DO IT", then talk about it!

http://cis.org/Announcements/failed-promises-immigration-enforcement-timeline

We do not need any new laws or amendments to enforce existing law which has been the law for over 200 years! We become bigger fools when we believe another law that's not going to be enforced will change anything.

Here is but one highlight from a long list of those broken promises:

1986 – Congress passed the Immigration Reform and Control Act, which for the first time prohibited the employment of illegal aliens. This was part of a package that included amnesty for long-term illegal aliens who passed criminal checks, paid fees, and took classes on English language and U.S. civics and history. The promised enforcement started weakly and petered out. It got so bad than in 2004, only 3 employers in the entire nation were fined for hiring illegal aliens. An estimated 7-8 million illegal immigrants continue to hold jobs. And by the way, this bill passed congress only because of the PROMISE of securing our borders, so we would never have this problem again.

A new amendment, a new law stating our borders are to be secure changes nothing.

Great post! Every Republican in Congress should be spewing this at every interview. Congress solved illegal immigration 27 years ago!

About all any new laws and new amendments are accomplishing is the diluting of what little respect remains for our "rule of law".

Sheriff Joe said earlier today all the current border talk is mainly just to divert scrutiny of the amnesty plan:

Senator Jeff Sessions, the chief opponent of the immigration bill, released this statement in response to the Senate passing the law by a vote of 68-32:

"There will be no border fence, no border surge, nothing but the same tired illusory promises of future enforcement that will never occur. Americans have begged and pleaded time and again for Congress to end the lawlessness. But this amnesty-first bill is a surrender to lawlessness. As ICE and USCIS officers have warned, it will decimate immigration enforcement and erode the constitutional rule of law upon which our national greatness depends. And it remains unfair to the legal immigrants who put enormous time and expense into following the rules our nation has established.

"This legislation demonstrates that the governing body in Washington has become severed from the people it is supposed to represent. It is a broken promise 1,200 pages long. . . . . .
