This morning on "Starting Point," Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), a member of the Senate's 'Gang of 8,' weighs in on the bipartisan plan put forth for immigration reform.
"I think Senator McCain would say we've acknowledged that we've made tremendous progress," Sen Menendez says. "The question is, how do we use additional technology to enhance our border security? How do we amass the resources we have with border patrol, customs and others to the entry/exit points that are critical both for the border security, as well as for the commerce, along the border states?"
"We believe that there can be specific, substantive items that can be achieved, and that's what we'll work towards in the legislation. If I believed that, at the end of the day, this would just be a process for a veto towards achieving a pathway to citizenship, I would not have signed on to the principles. I think this is an important part of it and it will not be an impediment to achieving our goal of a pathway to citizenship," he adds.
