The U.S. Senate has passed an expansive “immigration reform” bill.
The bill’s Hoeven-Corker Amendment would increase the government’s “border-security” spending to $46.3 billion.
This money will be used to create what John McCain calls “the most militarized border since the fall of the Berlin Wall,” staffed by at least 38,405 Border Patrol agents. That’s a larger force than George W. Bush had stationed in Afghanistan when he left office. No wonder it’s been called the “border surge.”
