It makes sense for Sessions to be in favor of Dorgan's amendment. Dorgan's amendment would DENY the proposed new path to citizenship to people in this country less than 2 years, and anybody coming to the country from now forward.

Sessions realizes he can't kill the entire bill, so it makes perfect sense for him to side with those points that tend to reduce the extent of forgiveness for past/current transgressions of immigration law.
