Skip to comments.Just when you think Arlen Specter can't stoop any lower...

I heard this on Sean Hannity's Fox Radio broadcast a short while ago and just now on "Lou Dobbs Tonight" on CNN:
Arlen Specter, according to Congressman John Kyl of Arizona, slipped a provision into the Immigration Bill the Senate passed today requiring the U.S. to consult with Mexico BEFORE building a wall in any area along the border.
Thank you President Bush and Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) for campaigning so hard for Specter in the '04 GOP primary in PA, saving his butt and giving him 6 more years in Washington to continue on his course to destroy this great Republic. We are so indebted to you.
(Tongue in cheek)
This piece of crap bill better not pass the House!
Im sure this is a mistake. He would never do this.
I've never thought Arlen Specter can't stoop any lower...
I just e-mailed my congresscritter to tell him to oppose it.
Seems like a bad move for the liberals...I can't imagine this bill going anywhere with the House with that little amendment added...
It was Chris Dodd's amendment, actually
Veto the bill and start over!
He appeared happy when he introduced the bill. I could not believe my ears and eyes -- and it passed and is now part of the passed bill.
whatever happened to Arlen's beloved "separation of powers?'..imagine...the Congress telling the Executive what to do..
It won't pass the House.
More interesting, it gives us an insight into the overclass' minds. They share more identity with the Mexican overclass than Americans.
t was Spector's package (a bunch of amendments from both sides)
BUT Dodds Amendment
UPDATE @ 17:23 - Found it. Senator Dodd's S.Amdt.4089 contains the following language:
(b) CONSULTATION REQUIREMENT.--Consultations between United States and Mexican authorities at the federal, state, and local levels concerning the construction of additional fencing and related border security structures along the United States-Mexico border shall be undertaken prior to commencing any new construction, in order to solicit the views of affected communities, lessen tensions and foster greater understanding and stronger cooperation on this and other important issues of mutual concern.

Full amnesty and no border security. Wasn't that Bush's plan all along?
You wanna guess how many Mexicans will cross the border within the next couple of days/weeks after the Mexican media publicizes the US amnesty?
Check his freezer for frozen pesos!!!
I saw that too. This is Specter's last term so he doesn't care. I can't say what I'd like to see happen to him because it would get me banned, but suffice to say that he is one of the biggest POS Senators in DC!
It will when Rove and Bush apply appropriate pressure
I would like to know what meds or smokes our senators are using now. These people have departed into the Land of Oz.
Don't forget that Rush Limbaugh had a love fest on the air with Specter as well.
It's not a mistake. He did it.
