Largely symbolic? Try useless! Lott said openly in a Washington Times article today he'll pull any amendments that pass from the bill in conference committee:

One key question is how to go forward even though several amendments have already cut at the grand bargain -- including limiting the guest-worker program and making it easier to deport those who don't qualify for legalization -- and several other difficult amendments could pass before the bill is final.
Senate Minority Whip Trent Lott, Mississippi Republican, said those amendments will simply disappear when the House and Senate go to conference.
"No big deal -- you pitch those before you get to the Rotunda," he said.
But that is just what those who oppose the bill fear.
"I'm really disturbed Trent Lott would say: accept an amendment, he'll pitch it in conference," Mr. Sessions said. "Whose side is he on?"

Look at link for the whole article, the amendments are sucker bait, even if they pass Lott say's he'll take them out.

Damn this post makes me angry.

Trent Lott along with Lindsay grahamCRACKER are playing career ending moves as politicians.

I will contribute to anyones campaign who runs against these bastardo’s.
