Immigration Bill Dead

Breaking from FoxNews:

-- The Senate drove a stake Thursday through President Bush's plan
to legalize millions of unlawful immigrants, likely postponing major action on
immigration until after the 2008 elections.
The bill's supporters fell 14
votes short of the 60 needed to limit debate and clear the way for final passage
of the legislation, which critics assailed as offering amnesty to illegal
immigrants. The vote was 46 to 53 in favor of limiting the debate.
in both parties said the issue is so volatile that Congress is highly unlikely
to revisit it this fall or next year, when the presidential election will
increasingly dominate American politics.

I pray the President will finally let this go, and lets get back to the war.

More: Jim Demint is my favorite Senator! Here's what he said, according to Michelle Malkin:

“When the U.S. Senate brought the Amnesty bill back up this week,
they declared war on the American people. This act created a crisis of
confidence in their government. Thankfully, the American people won today,” said
Senator DeMint. “This is remarkable because it shows that Americans are engaged
and they care deeply about their country. They care enough for their country to
get mad and to fight for it, and that’s the most important thing of all.
Americans made phone calls and sent letters, and convinced the Senate to stop
this bill.”

With politicians like this, there's hope for the GOP yet!
