The Senate tally
our picture of the Senate vote, I am initially listing the “exceptions,” that is, the 23 Republicans who voted for S.2611, and the four Democrats who voted against it, though, sadly, the “exceptions” on the Republican side are almost half the Republican caucus, with only nine more Republicans, 32, voting against the bill than the 23 who voted for it. A bright spot is that the liberal Democrat Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, who with the help of conservative immigration restrictionists defeated the atrocious open-borders ideologue Spencer Abraham’s re-election bid in 2000, voted against S.2611. So we weren’t just ridding ourselves of a bad guy when Abraham was defeated, we were getting a good guy, one of only four Democrats to buck their treasonous party on this historic vote.
Republicans who voted Yes (23):
Democrats who voted No (4):
Republicans who voted No (32):
Democrats who voted Yes (39):

Sorry, but I can’t help having some affection for Byrd. Not just this, other things too.
