Republican senators opposed to the amnesty bill set to be voted on for final passage this afternoon held a press conference to blast the bill.
In attendance were Sen. Rick Santorum (
Here’s a listing from the hardest hitting lines delivered from the senators:
Allen: "This [bill] is amnesty and the best source of it being so is Attorney General Ed Meese. At least they were honest about naming it 20 years ago."
DeMint: "The resentment and backlash [from this bill] will do more to damage our philosophy of welcoming immigratns than anything our government has ever done."
Ensign: "[The senate bill shows] we are not a country of laws. Maybe a very compassionate country, but not a country of laws….I’m hopeful the House will save us from this bill."
