One of my Senators in Congress is Charles "Chuck" Schumer. He's been in the Senate for a very long time, since 1981. Chuck Schumer is a Democrat and can often be found floating around the media scene. Chuck Schumer has a horrible record when it comes to immigration reform.
I recently received an email notice that CongressGrades.org recently updated his report card based on recent actions he has taken in Congress regarding immigration reform.
Items that they follow include reducing chain migration, cracking down on illegal immigration and limiting visa's to a reasonable level.
Chuck Schumer's career grade is a D and his recent grade is a D. In other words he has a long standing failing grade when it comes to dealing with true immigration reform. He has semi-decent scores in interior enforcement and border control, but we need to go further and actually solve the problems. Chuck Schumer needs to do more on the other issues like chain migration and anchor babies.

Chuck Schumer has a slightly better grade than my House Representative Louise Slaughter, but I'm still not thrilled with his record on immigration.
Immigration is only one issue to consider when voting. New York City has a massive illegal alien problem and Senator Chuck Schumer should be doing more to solve the issues there.
If my kid brought home these kinds of grades from school there would be some serious punishment.

Unfortunately, Schmuck schumer is my senator as well. He has been in the Senate since 1999, not 1981. In November of '98, he defeated a fine senator named Al D'amato, proving that New Yorkers are certifiable morons.
Schumer has infested the Senate ever since.
