Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) took to the Senate floor on Thursday to speak against the immigration reform bill, which later passed 68-32, stressing that many falsehoods were told about the legislation through misleading talking points, and that the American people, “from Day One,” were “misled about what was in the bill.”
“From Day One, the country was misled about what was in the bill,” said  Senator Lee. “The talking points never matched the reality of what was in the bill.”
“We were told that if we didn’t like what was in it, we could fix it,” he said. “But that wasn’t true either. During the committee ‘mark up,’ Democrats and the Gang of Eight Republicans voted as a bloc to defeat virtually all substantive amendments proposed to improve the bill.”
