    Actually no, but how it's been misinterpreted and misused IS a bad thing. I'd be okay with an amendment. But then I suppose we can just add it to the list of crap we've been sweeping under the rug and dealing with extra-constitutionally.

    Dictating operating procedures to private banks for the purpose of blocking lawful transmissions of funds that said bank might choose to do.

    I am not sure Menendez is known for his honesty.

    There is nothing lawful about the transactions of those who are here illegally.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Tell that to the approximately 1.5 million who have been deported under Obama. Or the 675,000 immigrants who are legally admitted each year.

    They would work just fine IF they were enforced.
    They are enforced. The problem is the laws are too complicated and there are too few vacancies for far too many who wish to come. The laws need reformed.
