Senator Jeff Sessions took the floor Thursday with a simple list of broken pledges from the Gang of Eight, showing the bad faith of the legislation which was negotiated in secret at the behest of business, ethnic and Democrat special interests.
Broken Promises of Senate bill:
? Border security first (not so, amnesty first)
? Toughest enforcement ever (weaker than 2007 bill; no complete entry-exit system)
? Pay back taxes (unenforceable, just a talking point)
? Learn English (taking a class is sufficient)
? No welfare benefits (but earned-income tax credits are included)
? End illegal immigration (CBO says only 25% reduction)
