Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) drilled down on flaws in S.744, The Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act, in closing remarks before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.
Sessions said, “The overall package is so unsatisfactory that the Senate would do better to start over from scratch.”
Sessions submitted a letter on behalf of activists and groups across the nation under the banner of the Coalition Against S.744.
One of Sessions’ major concerns is the ceding of control over immigration law to a political appointee. That appointee would also have control over a new public-private partnership few media have reported on.
