The former Governor of Texas, now the President of the United States, can`t get either of his state`s Republican Senators to back his Amnesty Bill. Of course, they shouldn`t, Texas is one of the hardest hit states, but why doesn`t ex-Governor Bush know that?

WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas, who has been under intense pressure from the White House and Republican leadership to support a sweeping immigration overhaul, nevertheless announced today that she will vote against reviving the legislation when it returns to the Senate floor next week.

She was joined today by the state`s other senator, Republican John Cornyn, who had been expected by the bill`s supporters to take such a stance. They had aggressively lobbied Hutchison in hopes of adding her vote to the 60 necessary to revive the stalled legislation.
