Republican lawmakers want to fix a big defect they see in the immigration system

Republican lawmakers want to fix a big defect they see in the immigration system. A new bill targets the temporary status program, which inadvertently shields more than 300,000 illegal immigrants in the United States. The problem is the program isn’t temporary, and it’s been around nearly 27 years -- since former President George H. W. Bush began it.

Texas congressman Louie Gohmert (R) is the co-sponsor of the measure, and he joined Dana Loesch on "Dana" today to explain some of the obstacles in removing dated legislation like the temporary status program.

Citing a nearly comical 82 programs formed just to help people get to and from appointments, Gohmert touted the effectiveness of the political left in preserving redundant and antiquated services.

He said they manage to sprinkle all the programs throughout various subcommittees, so if legislators try to reform or remove one, it looks like they have no compassion for seniors, veterans, "puppies," or any other needy group.
