Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) backed down from a previous promise his
spokeswoman made to Breitbart News that he would consider voting in
favor of amendments to the Senate's immigration bill that would close a
loophole allowing illegal immigrants immediate access to state and local

When Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) actually offered an amendment that would close
the loophole during Tuesday’s Senate Judiciary Committee markup of the
bill, Flake joined Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and all the committee
Democrats in opposing the amendment.

As Breitbart News has previously detailed, Senate Budget Committee
ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) found a loophole in the
immigration bill that would allow illegal immigrants access to state and
local welfare immediately and would allow them access to federal
benefits sooner than Gang of Eight members had publicly promised.

In response to the story, Flake’s spokeswoman Genevieve Rozansky told
Breitbart Newsher boss acknowledged the existence of the loophole and
would consider supporting an amendment to close it.

The Cruz amendment that would have barred illegal immigrants from
gaining access to state and local welfare immediately upon the bill’s
passage reads in part:

        “Notwithstanding any provision of this Act or any other
        provision of law, no alien who has entered or remained in the
        United States while not in lawful status under the Immigration
        and Nationality Act… shall be eligible for any Federal, State,
        or local government means-tested benefit, nor shall such alien
        be eligible for any benefit under the Patient Protection and
        Affordable Care Act (Pub. L. 111-148), regardless of the alien’s
        legal status at the time of application for such benefit.”

“The goal of the Gang of 8 bill is to not reward those who broke the
law,” Rozansky told Breitbart News for the late April story. “It clearly
prevents those with a provisional status from receiving federal
benefits, but if other senators have ideas about how to prevent them
from receiving state or local benefits that is consistent with the
principle of federalism, Senator Flake would certainly be open to such
an amendment.”

Rozansky did not respond to a request for comment on Tuesday on why her
boss did not follow through on the previous promise to close the state
and local welfare loophole in the bill.

Flake’s and Graham’s fellow Judiciary Committee member Sen. Chuck
Schumer (D-NY)was caught on a hot mic Monday organizing votes for
amendments to the legislation, referring to Flake and Graham as GOP
senators who belong to him and the Democrats. “Do our Republicans have a
pass on this one if they want?” Schumer said as the committee was voting
on an amendment that would prevent illegal immigrants from gaining
access to the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).
