Since this bill will only cut illegal immigration by 25%, we can expect this problem to grow exponentially. The bill doesn’t deal with visa overstays despite Corker’s pronouncement that it does.
The Chamber of Commerce is thrilled about the bill passage since they like the idea of cheap labor. The unions are okay with it because they plan to unionize the workers.
