Grassley: Constituents Want Border Security First, Legalization After


We’ve been fooled in the past and want it done right for once.
Check it out:

The “Gang of Eight” immigration bill pushing through the Senate right now legalizes America’s at least 11 million illegal immigrants first, then promises to improve border security later, but the constituents of Iowa–according to the state’s GOP senator–think that border security should come before legalization.

Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said during a Monday Senate floor speech opening up the debate on immigration that his constituents are not pleased with the Gang of Eight proposal.

“If you want to know how important securing the border is, just come to my town hall meetings,” Grassley said. “So far I’ve been in 73 of the 99 counties. My constituents say to me that we don’t need more laws, we need to enforce the laws on the books.”
