FILE - In this May 20, 2013, file photo Senate Judiciary Committee member Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., speaks at the committee's hearing on the landmark immigration bill on Capitol Hill in Washington. Previewing points he and conservative opponents intend to make about the bill over the next three weeks, Sessions said on the Senate floor Friday, June 7, 2013, that "In truth, the bill is amnesty first and a promise of enforcement later." The bill's requirement for payment of back taxes "is toothless," the promised steps to secure the border "will not work" and millions of immigrants currently in the country illegally would qualify for welfare in five years, he said.
