AMERICAN PEOPLE TO OPEN BORDERS LOBBY: NO! TO AMNESTY AGAIN! LA BILL KILLED IN THE SENATE!
Make no mistake, the Senate Amnesty bill is dead because we raised our voices.
Not the end of the war for open borders, but a certain win of a major battle.
The money boys will be back soon.
I am off to try to sleep. I hope all (except Jerry Gonzalez and Sam Zamarripa) share my sense of accomplishment and pride.
THANK YOU EVERYONE! Your children may yet grow up in Ben Franklin’s REPUBLIC.
WASHINGTON — A broad immigration bill to legalize millions of people who are in the U.S. unlawfully suffered a stunning setback in the Senate, costing President Bush perhaps his best opportunity to win a top domestic priority.
The bipartisan compromise championed by the president failed a crucial test when it could not attract even a simple majority for an effort to speed its passage.
Supporters could muster only 45 votes Thursday to limit debate and speed the bill to final passage, 15 short of what was needed on the procedural maneuver. Fifty senators voted against cutting off debate.
Most Republicans voted to block Democrats’ efforts to advance the measure.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat who had made no secret of his distaste for parts of the bill, quickly pulled it from the floor and moved on to other business, leaving its future uncertain. He insisted that the bill was not dead, but a crowded Senate calendar complicates its prospects.
“I, even though disappointed, look forward to passing this bill,” Reid said.
Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell, the minority leader, said Democrats tried to rush the bill.
