I hate to be the one to tell you, Save Jerseyans… but…
…New Jersey’s first Republican Senator since the 1970’s joined 13 other GOP Senators in supporting the upper chamber’s immigration reform package on Thursday evening. Don’t act too surprised.
With so many GOP defections, the bill easily passed the Senate with a filibuster-proof 68 votes. Senator Jeff Chiesa (R-NJ) had voted to advance the bill towards a final vote earlier this week.
The House of Representatives will now take up the debate.
This country sucks
Do we know how are Senate primary candidates would have voted?
He should be ashamed of himself
I agree with ^^^^^^
On a scale of 1-10?
10, there is no reason for citizenship legalization would be a much more efficient solution. We do not need 12 million new Democratic voters voting to increase social welfare programs (face it there aren't many wealthy or even financially stables illegals because they can't get good jobs). How can we given citizrenship, have people swear an oath to our country, when the first thing they did was break our laws to get here
I rate it: "Who gives a sh*t?"
Disgraceful. Im sure they'll all vote Republican thata why the GOP is placating the.
Can anyone here say they actually expected him to vote no? He did exactly what Christie told him to do. No surprise here.
Didn't Christie say some years back that there was " no such thing as illegal immigration?"
WELL I DID THINK WE HAD A CHANCE AND MENENDEZ I KNEW FROM THE BEGINNING….WHAT A SUCKER I WAS……NEW JERSEY I AM ASHAMED OF OUR SENATORS THEY NEED TO BE VOTED OUT ASAP..THEY ARE NOT FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NO WAY NO HOW
27. Amnesty sure helps those 11 million illegals. What does it do for the US? The priorities of these folks are disgraceful.
10. Furious. Not voting for Christie and after my county GOP candidates came out today endorsing lower tuition for children of illegals, I am not going to vote for them, either.
Just say NO to Chisea!
I do not know the answers but the status quo is also unacceptable in my book. I give Rubio plus marks for actually trying to get something done in Washington, DC.
Chiesa the progressive RINO was no surprise here. He's already aligned himself with progressive causes such as gun control given how he spearheaded gun buybacks. Christie is on record saying that illegal immigration is a civil violation. In other words, it's just like a parking ticket…
202-224-3121 COMPLAIN TO THE HO– USE ABOUT AMNESTY. the woman on the line tried to get me off by claiming "the house has not taken the bill up yet, so no reason to complain." DO NOT LISTEN TO THAT BS. COMPLAIN! LET THEM KNOW YOU WILL VOTE THEM OUT IF THEY VOTE YES!
Jersey cannot be saved, let it go. (a former New Yorker)
1-10? I'm at like a million…. I'm not voting for Christie. Chiesa knew no one wanted this. I called him a bunch of times his voicemail was constantly full. Is it really to much to ask for the first Republican Senator in 30 from Jersey to vote the opposite of the way Lautenberg would have? I guess so… I'm holding the guy who appointed him accountable.
I'm beginning to think that the only way to make it in America these days is to leave the country, become a citizen of another country then re enter the US illegally to get all the benefits.
They care less about America
None of theses traitors need to be in office
Vote there a$$ out!
