Reid Threatens Filibuster to Get Amnesty For Illegals

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-MX) wants his party's 11 million votes. That's the number of illegal immigrants estimated to be in the US. Reid has threatened to filibuster a Senate bill to overhaul immigration if Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist goes ahead with a version that doesn't guarantee a "path to citizenship" for the aliens currently evading the INS.

From the Associated Press:
"If Leader Frist brings a bill to the floor that does not have the approval of the Judiciary Committee, it will not get out of the Senate," Reid told reporters at the San Ysidro border crossing, a few steps from Tijuana, Mexico.
I'm not sure why Harry has flown into such a snit. If the Dems can't legalize the illegals to use for voting purposes they could always come up with the votes the old school Donkey way; raiding graveyards.
