It seems Sen. Mary Landrieu’s (D-LA) public persona is different from her private.
Yesterday, when Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-) offered a motion to allow amendments to the immigration supplemental, Landrieu voted for the motion while the cameras were rolling. Sessions said the purpose of the motion was to eventually allow the Cruz Amendment, which would halt executive amnesty by President Barack Obama.
But, when the cameras stopped rolling, Landrieu changed her vote, thus voting to continue allowing executive-granted amnesty to illegal immigrants. We even have a photo below showing that Landrieu crossed out her original vote.
Rep. Bill Cassidy’s (R-LA) spokesman said the move came after Senate Majority Leader likely told Landrieu to switch her vote.
“In election years, Senator Landrieu talks a big game about being independent and working for the people of Louisiana,” said John Cummins, Spokesman Bill Cassidy for Senate. “But yesterday, all Harry Reid had to do was ask and Mary Landrieu switched her vote and supported keeping President Obama’s executive amnesty on the books. Louisiana deserves a Senator who will represent Louisiana, Mary Landrieu proved she only votes with Louisiana when Harry Reid says she can.”
The move comes as Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) has noted that Louisiana has become a haven for illegal immigrants, flooding the Southern Border. According to Vitter, there are approximately 3,215 unaccompanied immigrant minor cases in Louisiana.
