Senator Sessions immigration


Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama is playing the same role in opposition to a sweeping immigration bill that he was in during the presidency of George W. Bush.

   Republican leadership argues the bill is critical to any chance for a national comeback for the party out of power in Washington.

   The Republican lawmaker says the legislation headed for passage in the Senate would cost the nation jobs and depress wages. He says it's not paid for and it would not guarantee better border enforcement.
