Here’s an idea: if Congress can’t get it together to build a fence, how about just dumping all the unread copies of the immigration reform bill along the border? Sen. John Cornyn, whose amendment mandating a 90 percent apprehension rate of illegals crossing the border was tabled on Thursday, tweets Friday evening that senators have just been presented with a 1,170-page bill to review for Monday’s vote. Earlier this week, the bill was said to weigh in at a whopping 24 pounds.
Hey, this is comprehensive immigration reform. Once this passes, the broken system is fixed for good, right?
Relax: we’ll have five days to read it and comment before the president signs it into law. He promised, remember?
