JD Hayworth explained in 1995 why he didn't vote for sham immigration bill

We're hearing that the McCain campaign has been accusing JD Hayworth of being soft on illegal immigration due to his vote against an illegal immigration bill in 1995. The truth? Hayworth voted against the bill because it was a bait-and-switch sham. He wrote an op-ed in the Washington Times explaining why:

The scheme is a classic bait-and-switch. First, pass a supposed "get-tough" enforcement bill in the House on Dec. 15 so members can head home feeling they've "done something" about illegal immigration. Second, let the Senate add a guest-worker amnesty plan to the bill in conference early next year. Finally, bring this completely different and deeply flawed bill back to the House for final passage.
