John Barrow comes out against immigration bill | Political Insider | www.ajc.com

WASHINGTON — In his first big splash since turning down a Senate campaign, U.S. Rep. John Barrow is tacking to the right on immigration – a sign of both how he intends to hold onto his Republican-leaning district for another cycle and the incredibly shaky immigration reform politics in the House.

The Augusta Democrat today introduced his own bill to beef up security on U.S. borders, while providing periodic Immigration and Customs Enforcement reports to Congress. He compared the Senate bill to the 1986 “amnesty” and declared it “a pig in a poke” – a shell game, if you will – for allowing the Obama administration to dictate the terms of border security while undocumented workers get immediate legal status.
