Dole, Burr differ on immigration bill

Dole stresses that she opposes it; Burr calls for it to be debated

WASHINGTON (Winston-Salem Journal) -
Both of North Carolina’s U.S. senators oppose the immigration bill under consideration by the Senate but they are taking different approaches to the debate.

Sen. Elizabeth Dole, a Republican, took part yesterday in a second news conference in three days to tell people that she adamantly opposes the bill.

About an hour later, Sen. Richard Burr, also a Republican, was holding court with reporters from across the country, urging his colleagues to at least let the bill come up for debate.
