Which senators voted to debate the immigration bill? (And who didn’t?)

The Senate voted 82-15 on Tuesday to bring up a comprehensive immigration reform bill for a debate that is expected to last weeks.

That’s a healthy vote margin for any piece of legislation, but remember the vote was only on the procedural matter of beginning formal debate on the bill.

So how did folks vote?

YES: 55 Democrats and 27 Republicans.

Among Republicans, the notable “yes” votes included Sens. Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), Kelly Ayotte (N.H.) Saxby Chambliss (Ga.), Bob Corker (Tenn.) and Johnny Isakson (Ga.) — a cluster of Republicans that Democrats believe will stay with them to vote for final passage. Also, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) — a potential 2016 presidential contender — voted yes. SOURCE

Let me show you what a REAL Conservative looks like:

Ted Cruz

That is Ted Cruz, a Conservative American United States Senator, MY Senator, from the great state of Texas, and if he keeps on doing exactly what he is doing he will always be on my list of people to fully support in any way I can.

This vote may have been just a procedural matter for beginning formal debate on the bill but Ted Cruz voted against it, simply because it’s a bill full of BS and Cruz knows it.

Let me show you what a *blowing in the wind* RINO looks like too.


Ever since John Cornyn was elected to the U.S. Senate many of us here in Texas have considered him to be nothing more than a *weak sister*, riding the skirt of Kay Bailey Hutchison. We had hoped that once she was gone Cornyn would break out and be that Conservative many of us had hoped he would be. He has not.

I have to admit, once in a while Cornyn does appear to *have a set*, but almost as soon as he gets his courage screwed up to the point where he can do the RIGHT thing, he seems to remember that he’s nothing more than a damned RINO, and votes like this make it obvious to ALL.


See if your Senator is a YES or a NO, then make your own decision about what support that Senator deserves.

    The only Immegration Reform Bill I will support is almost anything right after they CLOSE the border and force Mexico to keep their trash at home or no USAID that we get from China.

    • TexasFred says:

      That is MY issue as well.. Secure the border or they kiss my ass and go to hell… Why waste money on AMNESTY if the border is open for even MORE ILLEGALS??

      John Cornyn is cutting his own throat on this one, and anyone that sides with Marco Rubio has got to go too…

  2. BOTH my senators voted “yea!” Burr (R) and Hagan (D) AAARRRRRRRG!
    I’m not interested in even discussing the subject of immigration until the border with Mexico is sealed. A people who cannot, or refuse to, control their borders cannot claim to be a “country.”


  3. Bunkerville says:

    And McCain didnt even vote. Sums it up. Recall”Close the dang fence”…. Oh, that was then..

  4. mrchuck says:

    Cornyn is toast. He better not try to be elected again,, as he will be defeated.
    Cornyn did not follow the conservatives!

    • TexasFred says:

      Cornyn has been pissing me off for a very long time but then, out of the blue, he gets really Conservative.. Then, just as quickly, he goes right back to running with the RINO herd..

  5. Capt Ron says:

    I agree with you, Fred, and Mr. Robie. Close the border or nothing will work.
    Next, quit giving handouts to illegals. Quit giving them Carte Blanc on college tuition and the like. AND, stop giving them social security money that they send to wherever they came from.

    I would like to see the door slammed on all immigration for a period of time, years, to give those here time to truly assimilate.
    I would like to see as many border jumpers deported as can be rounded up and as quickly as possible. They are not citizens, get them out. I would like to see only one law system in effect, that of the United States. No separate legal system for anyone regardless of religion. I would like to ask anyone who wishes special treatment by virtue of their religous beliefs or for any reason why they came to this country in the first place? (moslems, are you listening?)
    I would like to ask anyone who is here illegally why, after having broken the law to begin with, thus demonstrating zero respect for the legal system, s/he expects special treatment. Otherwise, let’s throw out all the laws. I mean, if lawbreakers are going to be rewarded and not punished, let’s all go rob banks or shoplift or what have you. Isn’t rewarding umpteen million LawBreakers setting a wonderful precedent?
    I would like to ask our ‘lawmakers’ (snort)…what is more important to you… the citizens our OUR COUNTRY or the illegal border crossing NON citizens.
    Finally, I’d like to ask, just what is the problem with the existing immigration laws?

      The U.S. government hasn’t got the BALLS to enforce them.. Not just Obama, it goes a lot further back than Obama…

      • Abigail says:

        EXACTLY! They can’t/ won’t enforce what is already the law. So why do they think they could ‘enforce’ anything new?
        It will be no different except that they will grant status to millions of currently illegals. Then in a few years there will be more illegals and the whole thing will play over again. Definition of insanity? There it is.
        To paraphrase Reagan: Congress…put up that wall.
