Says Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC):
“This idea of ‘Just do the enforcement,’ there are no votes for that.”Last year, the Secure Fence Act, which mandated 854 miles of border fencing, passed the US Senate 80-19, passed the US House 283-138, and was signed into law by the president. There did seem to be some votes for that, no?
All the president has to do is request whatever other enforcement measures he wants from Congress. We, the people, will DELIVER THE VOTES for new enforcement measures in the US Congress.
We could start with the $4.4 billion “emergency supplemental” funding that was tacked on to the Bush-Kennedy amnesty. And then move on to mandatory employer verification of SSNs. All the president has to do is ask.-- PoliPundit
