Democratic blogger Mickey Kaus has this to say about Jeff Session`s latest immigration statement:
A few years ago a Democrat would have been putting out this statement. I agree with everything in it http://t.co/ssQgdWR4q2— Mickey Kaus (@kausmickey) January 18, 2014
Asked by a skeptical Twitterer to name a Democrat who believed in American jobs for Americans, he mentioned Byron Dorgan.
Here`s Byron Dorgan in an 2007 Steve Sailer column:
"Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., took the Senate floor in opposition to his Democratic colleague and, red-faced and gesticulating toward [Sen. Byron] Dorgan, defended the guest worker program, yelling, `The idea that you can have a secure border and close it completely is something that has never happened before and will not happen now`. … The Senate`s `liberal lion` continued to howl at Dorgan, demanding, `I would like the chicken pluckers to pay $10.15 — or $15 an hour. They don`t do it, and they`re not going to do it. Who`s the — who are you trying to kid?`"

"Let me stand up and say a word on behalf of chicken pluckers. They`ll never get $15 an hour as long as we bring in cheap labor through the back door to pluck chickens."
