WTOK, 6/1/7

Protesters by the dozens carried signs, like “Security First, Amnesty Never,” outside the Jackson office of Mississippi Sen. Trent Lott on Thursday. It was a shot at proposed legislation and Sen. Lott, who says the bill is not perfect, but it’s better than nothing.

“Sen. Lott has stated people in Mississippi have no problems with this bill, but as you see now, we are a cross section of Mississippi and we are very opposed to this bill,” said Kim Wade of the Mississippi Federation for Immigration Reform and Enforcement, or MFIRE.
