WASHINGTON, D.C.–The Immigration Bill that is headed to the U.S. House does not address some critical issues and will not work for America, said Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) on C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal”. He also has doubts that it would mean anything if it did pass.
Wicker was a guest for 40 minutes, talking immigration, the Obama administration’s health care policies and, most of all, the situation in Egypt, from his position on the Senate Armed Forces Committee.
“The question is ‘Is this Senate-passed version a comprehensive approach that’s gonna work?'” he asked of the Immigration Reform Bill.
“It’s been improved, but my feeling is it’s not gonna work. It doesn’t yet answer the problem of the 40 percent of illegals who are here not because they crossed the border, but because they stayed over.” He said the law does not improve the E-Veify system.
“And I’ll tell you what else,” he said. “There’s also doubt by Republicans like me that this administration would, in fact, enforce the provisions they’ve agreed to.”
