John Cornyn is an American HERO! He is 100% opposed to amnesty. He is for a TEMPORARY guest worker (not leading to citizen) program for 6 years. He wants to set a 6 month deadline for people not in the program to return home, because 50% of the farming and 25% of the construction in this countries jobs are held by illegals. We have to have temporary relief for the morons that put us in the position like Ted Kennedy. John Cornyn is smart enough to realize this.

Senator Cornyn voted AGAINST S. 2611(the amnesty bill)! You make it sound like he voted for it! He devised amendments like felony background checks, department of labor crack down on employers, and voted against social security benefits for illegals!
