Clinton Voted To Kill Immigration Reform In 2007

- October 11, 2015

Clinton Voted For An Amendment To Sunset The Y-1 Non-Immigrant Temporary Worker Visa Program After Five Years. "Dorgan, D-N.D., amendment to the Kennedy, D-Mass., substitute amendment. The Dorgan amendment would sunset the Y-1 non-immigrant temporary worker visa program after five years." (S. 1348, CQ Vote #201: Adopted 49-48: R 11-37; D 37-10; I 1-1, 6/6/07, Clinton Voted Yea)

  • The Dorgan Amendment – Which Sunset The Guest Worker Program After Five Years – Is Characterized As The “Poison Pill” That Ended Any Chance Of Comprehensive Immigration Reform From Passing During The George W. Bush Presidency. “Democrat Byron Dorgan, who seldom has tasted legislative success during 15 years in the Senate, scored a dubious victory last week. He was able to insert a poison pill into the immigration reform bill that aimed at emasculating the essential guest-worker program. The 49 to 48 vote that passed Dorgan's amendment included surprising support from two prominent first-term senators: Jim DeMint, a conservative Republican from South Carolina, and Barack Obama, a Democratic presidential candidate from Illinois.” (Robert Novak, Op-Ed, “Dorgan’s Poison Pill,” The Washington Post, 6/14/07)
