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.
