As an update to Michelle’s amnesty post Tuesday morning, here’s New York Sen. Chuck Schumer trying to sell what he wants everybody to believe is the upside of the “Gang of Eight” deal:

After the U.S. Senate voted to pass the motion to proceed to floor debate on the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) claimed that this bill would solve illegal immigration and secure the border.

“Illegal immigration will be a thing of the past,” Schumer said on the Senate floor, celebrating the passage of the motion to proceed.

Schumer complained in an impassioned and lengthy speech on the Senate floor that opponents saying the bill does not have border security “is not fair.” Schumer said giving billions of dollars to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will lead to increased border security, even if illegal immigrants are given amnesty first. He promised that assurances of future border security measures would be maintained.

The old “lowering the crime rate by legalizing the crime” approach.

Anybody who believes the “I will gladly secure the border Tuesday for amnesty today” pitch also buys it every time a guy like Schumer claims a new massive spending program will be offset by “future spending cuts” that never, ever come. No thanks, Chuck.
