The US Senate voted 53 to 47 today to defeat an amendment by Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, that would have required a controlled border for six months before any immigrant here illegally could take the first steps toward citizenship.

It was a reasonable and well-reasoned amendment to the White House-backed immigration legislation crafted by the “Gang of Eight“.

The following Republican Senators voted with the majority of Democrats against the majority of their fellow GOP senators to defeat the amendment, enabling the onset of the “Path to Citizenship” before the border is secured, which defeats the ultimate purpose of reforming immigration:

Jeff Flake (AZ)

Lindsey Graham (SC)

John McCain (AZ)

Lisa Murkowski (AK)

Marco Rubio (FL)

See them. See them very well.
