Amnesty Goes Down In Flames

The AP is reporting:

"A broad immigration bill to legalize millions of people in the U.S. unlawfully failed a crucial test vote in the Senate Thursday, a stunning setback that could spell its defeat for the year.

The vote was 45-50 against limiting debate on the bill, 15 short of the 60 that the bill's supporters needed to prevail. Most Republicans voted to block Democrats' efforts to bring the bill to a final vote."

Do you think that the Senate heard from their constituents on this issue? One can only hope. And while they were at it, I imagine that more than one taxpayer might have pointed out that there was an election coming up next year too.
