    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who has been working on a comprehensive amnesty bill with Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and President Obama, has said that there will be no chance of immigration reform this year due to the rancorous and partisan health care debate.

    During a Thursday Capitol Hill press conference, Sen. Graham said, "When I say immigration's dead in the Senate, risk-aversion abounds.... Some of my colleagues will lose over health care. The consequences of this vote are going to be long-lasting politically."

    Sen. Graham continued by asking the assembled press, "If you think you've created a problem for yourself on health care, why would you move onto immigration?" He also issued a challenge to President Obama: "To the president: If you want to deliver on your unwavering commitment to immigration reform, write a bill.... You write the bill, send it to the House. See what happens, because I don't think you have much of a chance of getting it through the Senate."

    Weren't we told that Health Care Reform was dead?

    Is this something else that will get put in under our noses with 2000+ pages of kickbacks that no one has read?

    This year? I'll applaud when it's no year. Not now. Not ever. Never.
