You clearly need to bone up on your Schumerism, Mr. York. When Chuck says "First, defining metrics that demonstrate that the border is secure," he does not mean that they need to find ways to secure the border, he means that they need to find ways to claim that the border IS secure. It's an argument based on semantics, not logic, reason, or national interest. Chuck doesn't want to do anything about securing the border, and he will in fact vote against anything that would slow illegal immigration. Chuck just wants you to believe that they are trying to slow illegal immigration, so that he can then move to what matters to him, legalizing 11 million illegal immigrants so that they can vote in 2016.
