Georgia Senators Saxby Chambliss (R) and Johnny Isakson (R) are engaged in a careful threading of the needle for their public approach to the Senate immigration bill, according to this news story. While both say the bill has gotten stronger through amendments, they also say that it wasn't "good enough for Georgia"--yet. Though both voted against cloture--and in the face of a public outcry against the bill--they also, at least according to this story,
have made clear that they don't like all aspects of the bill, which President Bush also supports. But they have insisted that it is far better than allowing the current system to continue and said it is the best compromise available.
