    Lamar Alexander Warned in 2013 Senate Amnesty Bill Would Cause Border Crisis

    by Tony Lee 16 Jun 2014, 7:37 PM PDT

    Law enforcement officials warned incumbent Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and others before they voted for the Senate's amnesty bill in 2013 that doing so would embolden more illegal immigrant youths to flood across the border and create a massive humanitarian crisis.

    The federal government, by warehousing illegal immigrant youths and sending them to military bases, has been forced to deal with the border crisis in recent weeks and months that was in part created by that bill.

    On May 29, 2013, less than a month before the Senate would pass its amnesty bill, officials from the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council of the American Federation of Government Employees wrote a letter to senators before the vote on the Senate's comprehensive amnesty bill, warning them that passing a bill granting amnesty to illegal immigrants would be a magnet that attracts more while subjecting illegal immigrant youths to victimization.

    "Driven by mere speculation that S. 744 may be enacted by Congress, illegal border crossings have spiked dramatically," they wrote in 2013. "Thousands of unaccompanied children, runaways, and families now attempt to illegally enter the United States in hopes of receiving legalization."

    The law enforcement officials warned that "this trend will surely continue after enactment as S. 744 provides no commitment of stronger border enforcement for at least five to ten years following the initial legalization phase."

    "Thousands will be victimized or perish as they attempt the treacherous crossing into the United States in hopes of attaining legal status," they warned Alexander and other Senators. "Cut-off dates established in S. 744 will mean little to those in other countries who are unfamiliar with the 867-page bill. Without a strategy of border security first, S. 744 will only draw more illegal immigrants into the United States, resulting in unnecessary harm to many."

    After House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's (R-VA) shocking loss last week to Dave Brat, Tennessee state Representative Joe Carr is calling out Alexander for his support for amnesty legislation before the August 7th primary.

    Carr, as Breitbart News reported, "said many of the themes that Brat used to topple Cantor, like tying his embrace of amnesty to his broader support of crony capitalist policies, can be used" to oust Alexander.

    Carr told Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow on Breitbart News Sunday that Alexander is responsible for allowing illegal immigrants to assault America's sovereignty and said his campaign has received a considerable boost from Brat's underdog victory.
