WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bob Corker, R-Tenn., issued a statement on Sunday to clarify that 1,100 pages of the immigration bill have been public since May.
“I’ve seen reports of a ‘1,200 page bill’ no one has read or had time to read. To be clear, the tough border and interior enforcement provisions that Sen. Hoeven and I offered on Friday make up 119 pages added to the 1,100 pages that have been public since May,” said Corker.
The Hoeven-Corker amendment mandates an unprecedented surge of security at the southern border, implements tough interior enforcement to curb de facto amnesty, and helps prevent abuse of federal benefits. Read more about the amendment here: http://1.usa.gov/132d2SG.
