Lamar Alexander Embraces Amnesty Again after Primary Win http://t.co/oQROFHzFgn That was fast.

The dust has barely settled since Sen. Lamar Alexander beat back a strong challenge from Joe Carr in Tennessee’s Republican primary. Yet here he is, once again, talking up the need for a “comprehensive immigration reform” bill. In other words, amnesty.
“I don’t know how it will affect our politics in the near term,” Alexander told Politico of a comprehensive immigration bill. “I think it’s embarrassing for us not to deal with the problem, and I think we should do it in the next two years.”
And though Alexander claimed that he won the primary because he did not run away from his record, he aired a deceptive ad in the final week of the campaign that claimed he “voted to end amnesty.”
Those who support enforcement of America’s immigration laws are giving him (and his supporters in Tennessee) the business:
