This morning on "Starting Point," Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) weighs in on the various plans for comprehensive immigration reform in the U.S. that have been released this week.
"What we want to make certain is that it is not amnesty," Rep. Blackburn says. "I have to tell you I think this is some of the particulars and the legislative language that people want to see. Because one of the lessons we have learned from decades past, decades, they have tried to address this issue, over the decades. It doesn't matter if it was Clinton or if it was Reagan, what we've learned is, if you grant amnesty, what do you get, more amnesty."
"Let's make certain it's going to be fair. Let's make certain that we're not doing something that is going to put even more pressure on the Obama care system and on the Medicaid system that we have," she adds.
