Whoops: Check The Fine Print in Feinstein’s Border Bill
They should have checked the fine print. That's the message Mike Reed has for Senate Democrats like Jon Tester in a new post on the GOP's website.
Senator Susan Collins has pointed out the bill 'would essentially prevent arrest within 100 miles of the border, even if the person has committed a serious crime or is suspected of terrorist activities.'
Reed was linking to this piece by Gabriel Malor posted at The Federalist website. Malor writes:
Every Senate Democrat has now signed on to cosponsor a bill written so carelessly that it does not distinguish between migrant children at the border and U.S. citizen children already within the United States. The bill further does not distinguish between federal officers handling the border crisis and federal law enforcement pursuing the ordinary course of their duties.
Republican Senate candidate, and Montana's State Auditor, Matt Rosendale, meanwhile, is criticizing Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) for his support of sanctuary cities. Rosendale also says he is supporting separate legislation from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) that would halt family separations.
From Rosendale's press release:
By backing the Feinstein bill, Senator Tester is putting into law the failed and dangerous policy of catch and release and bringing us closer to enacting the far-left’s open border agenda. At the end of the day, Tester’s not for enforcing our laws, he wants to let illegal immigrants flow freely into this country without consequence. He’s for protecting illegal immigrants and giving them sanctuary in cities across our nation. This isn’t just dangerous, it’s unacceptable. I don’t want to see families separated so that’s why we need to get tough and enforce our laws. We need to bring law and order back to this country, secure our border, and build that wall. We have an obligation to put America first – not illegal immigrants.
Matt Rosendale supports S. 3091, the Protect Kids and Parents Act introduced yesterday by Senator Ted Cruz.
