Idaho Senators Split on the Rule of Law

Posted by Adam Graham on June 7, 2007

As is usual of Oklahoma’s Junior Senator, Tom Coburn introduced an Amendment that forced people to take a tough stand. His proposal would have required existing laws be enforced before amnesty is granted. The vote failed 42-54 with Idaho’s Senators split.

Senator Crapo (R-Id.) continued to show the understanding that has been critical throughout this debate, while Senator Craig unfortunately more closely followed a pattern of siding with amnesty ahead of enforcement and insuring the law is followed.

Both men voted against cloture and stopped Reid’s attempt to ram the amnesty down the Senate’s throat.

Will we have additional Amendments, or is this thing truly dead as some have declared? Regardless, we have to be on the watch to fight tha amnesty wherever it might rear its head.
