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.
