John McCain attacks Deb Fischer (R-NE) after her criticism of immigration bill (video)

Source: Omaha World Herald

By Joseph Morton

WASHINGTON — Sen. John McCain ripped into fellow Republican Deb Fischer on the Senate floor this week over her criticisms of the pending immigration legislation.

The junior senator from Nebraska had just wrapped up a floor statement on Tuesday in which she ran through a list of her problems with what she called a “fatally flawed” bill.

She said the proposed legislation would fail to secure the border before granting status to those in the country illegally, has major loopholes for those who overstay visas and would cost too much money without any accountability.

“The reporting requirements to Congress are toothless,” Fischer said. “I reject, and I suspect Nebraskans reject, the idea that massive amounts of spending alone are the solution to our border security problem.”

1. 50 Years Ago Nebraska Was Run By The Unelected Peter Kiewit

Today it is run by the unelected Joe Ricketts. Deb Fischer's election was bankrolled by Joe Ricketts.

4. I tend to agree with her.

 

$30 billion for a stupid, unnecessary wall and border security we don't need. Illegal immigration is a net negative and Obama has deport record numbers of people. And the H1-B visa are horrible for American workers. This bill sucks and I hope it fails.
