A “Yes” Vote Explains

As Scott noted earlier, Minnesota’s Senator Norm Coleman voted “yes” on cloture on the immigration bill today. A little while ago, he explained his thinking on the vote:

The cloture motion I supported today was to move ahead with the debate on the immigration bill. This is the first of many votes that we will take on this bill. I did so because the immigration crisis facing our country is too important to be ignored and I think we in the Senate have a responsibility to address it. Nevertheless, I believe work needs to be done to improve this bill.
I have an amendment to end the practice of sanctuary cities which I believe deserves an up or down vote in the Senate. I think this is critical to restoring the rule of law to immigration. 40 percent of illegal immigrants in the country today have overstayed their visas
