Lee on Immigration Bill: ‘Another 1,000-Page Mistake’

by Andrew Johnson

Senator Mike Lee of Utah blasted the Gang of Eight’s immigration-reform bill on the Senate floor this morning, calling it “another 1,000-page mistake” and “big-government dysfunction.”

“This is not the bill to fix our immigration system,” he said. “There is another way, it’s a more sensible and a more successful way.”

Lee emphasized that he supports immigration reform, but that “we’re being presented with a choice of the Gang of Eight bill or nothing.”

The Senate will debate the bill today and is scheduled to hold the first votes on the bill next week.
