Feingold and Kohl: Screw Border Security

Another Big Surprise from Feingold (D-AlQuaeda) and Herbie, (Nobody's Senator):

And on a vote of 55-40 that crossed party lines, the Senate rejected an appeal from Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) to require the border to be secured before other immigration law changes could take place.

Thirty-six Democrats, including Feingold and Kohl; 18 Republicans; and the Senate's lone independent voted against the amendment.

In other "no surprises here" developments:

...Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) praised the president for a "commendable job" in his Monday speech

"I don't underestimate the difficulty in the House and Senate coming to an agreement on this issue," said House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio). "But I do think it is possible." (Boehner is a moderate Republican. His statement is meant to tell Jim Sensenbrenner to Go To Hell.)

And here's the New Dictionary Definition of "Amnesty"

Under the bill, illegal immigrants who've been in the U.S. at least five years could move toward legal status by working for six years, paying back taxes, passing background checks, learning English and paying $2,000 fines.
