Sessions Has List of 20 Loopholes in AMNESTY Bill

Senator Sessions Releases List of 20 Loopholes in the Senate Immigration
Alabama Republican Party

U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) released a list of 20 loopholes in the comprehensive immigration bill today which reveals that the bill is fatally flawed and will not establish a functioning immigration system in the future.

The list of loopholes includes flaws effecting border security, chain-migration and assimilation policies. The list exposes the lack of serious attention given to ensuring that the legislation fixes America’s failed immigration system.

“I am deeply concerned about the numerous loopholes we have found in this legislation. They are more than technical errors, but rather symptoms of a fundamentally flawed piece of legislation that stands no chance of actually fixing our broken immigration system,” Sessions said. “Many of the loopholes are indicative of a desire not to have the system work.”

For example, one loophole in the “enforcement trigger” fails to require the U.S. VISIT system – the biometric border check-in/check-out system established by Congress in 1996, but never implemented – to be fully functioning before new worker or amnesty programs begin. Without the system in place, the U.S. has no method of ensuring that workers and their families do not overstay their visas.

Another flaw in the legislation prevents the benefits of merit-based immigration from taking full effect until 2016. Until then, chain migration into the U.S. will actually triple, compared to a disproportionately low increase in skill-based immigration. As a result, the merit-based system in the bill is only a shell of what it should have been.

A third loophole in the bill allows immigrants to avoid demonstrating a proficiency in English for more than a decade. Illegal aliens are not required to learn English to receive full “probationary benefits” of citizenship. Passing a basic English test is only required for the third Z-visa renewal, twelve years after amnesty is granted.

Sessions will highlight many of the loopholes contained in the list this week during Senate debate on the immigration bill.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Jeff Sessions will be long remembered for his work to quite literally save the Republic. I can only imagine the heat that he receives every day from the Quislings who are demanding he stop supporting the people.

If our elected officials (including the current administration) have refused to adhere to the past bills and laws, why should we even consider trusting them to enforce the laws in this new (abhorrent) bill?


In October of last year - one billion dollars was allocated to build a 700+ mile fence to secure our borders. Only ten miles at the most has been built in the past eight months. So what happened to the BILLION dollars (and the 690 more miles)? Ask Senator John McCain........

McCain: Can't Explain Why We Didn't Build The Fence

Oh geez. I'm glad we have people like Sessions, who take the time to actually "READ" what's being put before them and understand it.
Isn't that part of their job?

Thank God we have Jeff Sessions on our side. Can we kidnap him and replace Martinez with him?

Lynn, it should be part of their job. I just bet they have someone in their office scan it or something if that all, and maybe mark it with a highlight pen.

LOL......whispering back to you.......Darth me either. I was naive to think that after 9-11 he would not attempt his desire to cater to the illegals that he spoke of when he ran the first time, but he sure has.
