GINNI THOMAS: Six big problems with the immigration bill from someone who has actually read it  From The Daily Caller

Former New York lieutenant governor Betsy McCaughey bets “you can’t find five members of Congress who have read” the Senate “Gang of Eight” immigration bill.

The former Democrat is experienced at reading large bills the Congress seems inclined to pass without reading, such as Obamacare. She tabs them, underlines them and tries to see the big picture of what will happen if the provisions of the bill are implemented.

In an interview with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas, McCaughey brought her dog-eared immigration bill with her and pointed to it repeatedly.

The following is a summary of the objections to the current immigration bill from Betsy McCaughey’s video on the Daily Caller.

Objection 1 – Immigration bill waives the one year period in which people can seek asylum in the United States.  It gives asylum seekers unlimited time to seek asylum.  It also adds another level to the asylum appeal process and gives the Justice Department the right to pay legal fees to the asylum seekers.  All of these are new law. Section 3401, 3504, 3502

Objection 2 – This bill outsources the job of guiding people through the citizenship process from the government to community organizations that will be funded by the federal government.  It creates a nonprofit 501 c3, called US Citizenship Foundation that will work in coordination with the federal government.  The board of this new organization will consist of 10 nonprofit community groups.  Their job will be to create citizen education programs, the citizenship tests.  The Office of Citizenship will no longer have this job.  It will no longer fall under public scrutiny or oversight.  It will be outsourced to the community organization groups.  The funding to these Community Organizations is PERMANENT!    Section 2106

Objection 3 – This bill will double the number of legal immigrants over the next decade, the back of the line provision, Section 245 Cc.   Illegal Immigrants have to wait until legal immigrants are through the line, but there is provision in the bill that states the line must be caught up in 10 years… only problem is the line is currently 19 years long.  The bill will double the rate of people being given green cards.  This will add $100,000,000,000 to the cost of Obamacare alone, not including the cost of education, food stamps and housing.

Objection 4 – The ads promoting the bill quote Senator Rubio saying that the immigrants will be given provisional green card status only if they are self-supporting, they must have work or they will not be given provisional status.  This sounds great unless you read the details…  You must be fully employed – UNLESS – you are going to college, going to high school, getting your GED, taking care of an elderly family member or a child or are unemployed and you don’t think it is your fault.  In other words, you have to be employed, unless you’re not…  Section 245 Cb

Objection 5 – More times than is worth counting, the bill claims that provisions are emergencies… thus is exempt from the pay-as-you-go law!  Immigration Reform is not an emergency!!!

Objection 6 – Puts the Boarder Agents under the thumb of the Office of Civil Rights in the Justice Department.  Section 1111, 1112, 1113.  Border Agents will now focus more on the rights of the people coming across the border than protecting the border.

This bill in its current form needs to be stopped.  Call Senators Brown and Portman today!
