John Kerry (D-MA), along with many Democratic and Republican Senators, voted in favor of a 370 mile fence on the US-Mexican border. Kerry explained his vote at New England Council breakfast on Friday and managed to "straddle the fence" on the whole issue. Here is the immigration debate, Kerry-style.
John Kerry for the fence
"I voted for it because, first of all, a lot of it is the repair of the existing fence. A lot of it is just in the Arizona area, where we have the worst problem, the most numbers of people coming over."
John Kerry against the fenceTo be clear: John Kerry is for the fence, but against it. So he's literally on the fence on the fence. Leadership.
"If I were making the long-term decision, I’d announce, you know, hopefully it’s a temporary measure, and we can take it down as soon as we have enough people, and we’ve established a process where we’ve reduced the level."
