He said the the amnesty would never again be needed,and would not be offered.

"Senator Edward Kennedy, 1986:

"This amnesty (1986 IRCA) will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this."

Senator Edward Kennedy, Address, Center for National Policy, Feb. 8, 1996.:

"We should strengthen our immigration laws to prevent the importation of foreign wages and working conditions. We should make it illegal for employers to lay off Americans and then fill their jobs by bringing in workers from overseas. Any U.S. employer who wishes to hire from abroad--even for temporary jobs--should have to recruit U.S. workers first. And we should end the unskilled immigration that competes with young Americans just entering the job market.""

Wonder why he has changed his tune???

Perhaps his nose was buried in George W. as George W.'s was in ex Mexican President Vicente Fox?

Interesting. Another Democratic who's changed his mind. And, it's become worse in 2009!

The Ted Kennedy Foundation or Library wants $22Million of the just-announced $410Billion new stimulous bill.

Horse crap!

Too bad Ted won't be around for the
next shamnesty protests. They'll
be the American's on our streets,
not illegal alien border jumpers.

not unlike the statements he made when the HMO act of 1973 that he authored was signed into law, bringing us the healthcare system we all enjoy now.
