Audio: Kyl says Bush’s amnesty plan could be filibustered — by Republicans

Full Transcript:
Laura Ingraham: “Will the GOP minority in the Senate, Senator Kyl, filibuster the president if he agrees with a broad coalition of Democrats and pro-illegal immigration Republicans on pushing temporary workers and a path to citizenship? Can you see that happening?”

KYL: “I would certainly hope that the majority of Republicans in the Senate would not be complicit in passing legislation that is not wise, that for example, would put everybody on a path to citizenship and say that temporary workers get to get U.S. citizenship, and so on. I would certainly hope that we would have the 40 votes to be able to stop that, but, I don’t know, we’re going to have to wait and see; it’ll be very close.”

Laura Ingraham: “I would guess then that’s a yes; a filibuster would be in order if it was necessary.”

KYL: “It would be in order. My only question is whether we’ve got the votes to do it. Clearly a majority of the Republicans in the Senate don’t want that kind of legislation, but whether we’ve got 40 votes, I’m just not sure.”
