Decepticons – All Four GOP Member of Gang Of Ocho Vote Against Border Fence and Visa Requirements In The Senate Amnesty Bill

Senators: John McCain (AZ), Jeff Flake (AZ), Lindsey Graham (SC) and Marco Rubio (FL) voted against a border fence and structure of a biometric visa system prior to obtaining legal status.

Let that sink in…..

GOP gang of 8

….  All four “supposed conservative” members voted against the fence and visa amendments.  This, despite the vast majority of Americans wanting a secure border, and improved immigration visa security, before continuing with amnesty.

WASHINGTON DC – The Senate Tuesday defeated two amendments aimed at strengthening border security in the Gang of Eight immigration reform bill, including a provision that would have required a double-layer fence on the U.S.-Mexico border.

The back-to-back defeat of the two provisions was a blow to critics of the immigration reform measure who say it lacks meaningful border security provisions.

Only 39 senators voted for an amendment authored by Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., that would have mandated the completion of the fence along a 750-mile strip that divides the United States from Mexico before any of the nation’s estimated 11 million illegal immigrants could obtain a green card.

Illegal is not a raceThe Senate also voted 58-36 to kill a provision offered by Sen. David Vitter, R-La., that would have required that a biometric visa system be implemented before illegal immigrants can obtain legal status.

Thune’s provision would have required completion of at least half the length of the fence before illegal immigrants could obtain legal status. […]

All four GOP members of the gang — Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake, both of Arizona, Lindsey Graham, of South Carolina, and Marco Rubio, of Florida — voted against the fence and visa amendments.  (READ MORE)

    I wonder what TPTB have on them… or if the desire for National Campaign Funding, to stay in power is what drives them?

      They’re simply RINOs – or, more accurately: PINOs: Partisans In Name Only. They are elitists and statists; a “D” or an “R” after their name pales in significance to the “Sen” in front of their name.

    They do not represent the interests of those who elected them, nor the interests of the USA in general. Two words: Third Party.

    Let the howls begin.

    FAIR was reporting the gutting of the bill by the eight two weeks ago. I don’t think it’s so much a matter of whom has what on whom but that imperialist attitude they all get regardless of their party. They’re so powerful now, compared to the guttersnipes they see having elected them, that they can’t possibly envision their being carted off to the guillotine when the electorate changes. The Republicans see a huge influx of cheap blue collar labor and the Democrats see and indentured voter base who’ll reelect them to the cookie jar forever. I don’t believe they see a huge non-English-speaking hoard with no cultural background to give them the wherewithal to operate inside of the US culture. I look at California and its history with Anglo/Latino inter-assimilation as the only concrete example of what’s to come. If the Congress were really serious about immigration to increase our supply of hi-tech workers why aren’t they pushing for immigrants from Europe or Asia? Where are the hi-tech centers in Central America? BTW, if we don’t have the highly educated technical grads in teh US we need – whose *X&*^%$ fault is THAT?

    Republicans seeking to kill the Thune Amendment = 5 (gangsters + Sleaza Murkowski)
    Democrats supporting = 2 (Pryor of Arkansas and Manchin of West Virginia)

    Republicans seeking to kill the VItter Amendment = 7 (gangsters + Sleaza Murkowski + Kellylies Ayotte + Susan Collins)
    Democrats supporting = 1 (Pryor of Arkansas)
