Immigration Bill Blocked in Senate Vote

Efforts to overhaul the nation's immigration laws were halted
by a procedural vote in the Senate today, meaning that the
issue is probably dead until after the 2008 elections.

Supporters needed 60 votes to limit debate on the contentious
bill and move it toward passage, but managed to muster only
46 votes in favor, against 53 opposed.

I don't know what to think. They're just going to drag this on and on and on. How frustrating it must be.

jm 4847, it won't drag on it'll be dead. No more talk, no more legislation. And all the illegals will remain just that and have to hide from any official authorities and just scrape by. It's ridiculous!
I'm for complete amnesty! So hard-working immigrants can get about the business of making a living and raising their children.
