Senator Hopes House Passes Immigration Bill With Border Security

Senator Hopes House Passes Immigration Bill With Border Security

Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley who voted against the Senate’s immigration bill says he hopes the House will correct the measure when they consider it. He says the main reason he opposed the Senate Bill is due to lack of border security contained in the measure.

He says once the legislation has occurred there’s no way to go back adn undue it if security problems persist. Grassley doesn’t think the Senate bill gives any motivation to the House to pass immigration legislation.

Grassley expects House Judiciary Chair Bob Goodlatte to fix the security problems contained in the Senate legislation when the House considers their bill.
