Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) spoke on the Senate floor Thursday about the dismal state of affairs in our immigration enforcement system. Citing the LA Times story that shows there has been a 44 percent drop in interior deportations since 2009 and the recent analysis which shows that two-thirds of ICE removals last year were actually border apprehensions, Sessions charged that the system is in a state of collapse, and that it is by design.
Sessions condemned U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Vice President Joe Biden for their appalling pro-amnesty efforts:
“So, you come into the country illegally and the attorney general of the United States declares that these individuals have a civil right to amnesty. How can this possibly be: the chief law enforcement officer in America?
“Vice President Biden recently said, quote: ‘You know, 11million people live in the shadows; I believe they’re already American citizens.’ Eleven million undocumented aliens are already Americans? Goodness. The vice president of the United States would make such a statement. It’s stunning beyond belief.”
“Our law enforcement system is in a state of collapse,” he said. “And it’s a deliberate plan by the president of the United States, and it’s wrong. And, people need to be aware of it and need to stand up to it and I believe the American people are beginning to do so.”
