Near the end, he says this about the opposition to the Senate's massive illegal alien amnesty:
We've been down this road before: no Catholics, no Jews, Irish need not apply
He also said that Republicans should realize that the Senate's bill is the "best [they're] going to get". He also blackmailed the U.S., claiming that if "reform" isn't passed "the 12 million [illegal aliens] become 20 million... the borders continue to be broken". Of course, that would not happen if our laws were enforced.
He also wondered whether we're "going to let the union halls and the talk radio take over this debate".
He also said the following which, were he not on Teddy Kennedy's side might have resulted in outraged leftists:
our culture is under attack... we're not going to give our culture away [under the bill]...
And, finally, he made an outrageous lie:
[the bill says to "illegals"] you stay here on our terms
Obviously, the bill caves in to illegal aliens and validates their attempts to make shows of force across the U.S. by marching in our streets. Of course, he's not the first person to try to sell a massive capitulation as a victory.
