"A citizen suit provision allowing any citizen of the United States to challenge the wrongful certification of any metric will put teeth into it." Trust the courts to decide this?? Like they did Obamacare? Like they did Obama's eligibility to even RUN for President? Every politician swears to uphold the law and the Constitution....yet they don't. Where's the penalty for that? Why can't they be charged by ANY citizen for violating their oaths of office? Wouldn't that be considered PERJURY??????

The end of the first week of the debate over immigration reform proved that it is the roller derby of public policy debates for Republicans and Democrats alike.

Louisiana Senator David Vitter was the first to provide a face plant and skid over the rails. The blowback directed at Vitter for mocking Marco Rubio was intense, and the penalty box includes a copy of An American Son for reading. “Naïve” about immigration doesn’t work well with the son of immigrants.

More seriously, Senator Schumer may have declared immigration reform over before it began...
