Last Friday during the vote-a-thon that took place in the Senate before recess, U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) offered an amendment to the 2014 budget that would have prevented illegal immigrants from receiving free and taxpayer-funded benefits under either Medicaid or the President’s Affordable Care Act if given legal status through an amnesty bill. Unfortunately, the Senate’s Democrat majority was unanimous in opposing the amendment, and it failed by a vote of 43-56.

Senator Sessions also appeared on FOX News’ “On The Record w/ Greta Van Susteren” last night to discuss the Senate’s vote over the weekend….
