Hugh Hewitt says the immigration bill is a lousy law and that the Corker-Hoeven amendment does NOT compel the border fence to be built and is written in such a way that environmental lawyers will have a field day with it in filing lawsuits to keep the fence from even being built. He tells Hoeven that even he could go work for the enviros and make sure this fence is never built:
I certainly can go to work for the enviros to stop this, and if I was a La Raza type, I could make sure this fence was never built, even it was only three feet and it could be hopped over. I mean, it’s a disaster.
Hewitt went on to say that the lawyers who wrote the law are either really, really dumb advocates for the fence or really, really smart opponents of the fence. He believes they are indeed the latter and infers that they are basically lying to Republicans about how this amendment works. He even tells Hoeven that it looks like they weren’t even serious about getting this done correctly.
Now it makes sense to me why Rubio is making the claims he is making right now, because he’s basically being misinformed by these lawyers who are just telling them what they want to hear while writing the amendment in such a way as to make it completely ineffective with regard to border fencing.
This is a must listen:
