Bob Corker Statement On The Senate's Vote On Immigration Reform
Today, former Chattanooga Mayor and Republican Senate candidate Bob Corker released the following statement regarding the Senate's vote on immigration reform.
"The immigration reform bill passed by the Senate is too lenient on illegal immigrants already in this country. I would have voted against it.
"Comprehensive immigration legislation must include strong provisions to secure our borders without the inclusion of amnesty, provide a means for those who want to work here to do so legally, and an instant verification system for employers to use to determine a worker's status. It is my hope that the final version that emerges from the negotiations between the House and Senate sufficiently addresses these issues."
