The Amnesty roll call vote...

Here, courtesy of FOX news is the roll call that put the Senate amnesty bill to sleep, at least for a while...and there are some surprises as well.

The Senators that voted for this nonsense were concerned primarily about campaign contributions from businesses that hire illegal aliens and like the idea of a continued flow of cheap labor, no matter what the effect on the country.

These weasels are, plain and simple, for sale...strip them down to the skin and you'd find a bar code. Here are the votes - Note that every Democratic presidential candidate voted for this nonsense, and I've highlighted them and some others in scarlet, so we remember:

A "yes" vote is a vote to cut off debate and shove this through the Senate:

Voting yes were 37 Democrats and 7 Republicans and one independent.

Voting no were 11 Democrats and 38 Republicans and one independent.
