WASHINGTON (AP) - 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.

The legislation, which had been endorsed by President Bush, would tighten borders, institute a new system to prevent employers from hiring undocumented workers in addition to giving up to 12 million illegal immigrants a pathway to legal status.

I have to wonder just what the Hell is up with Bush. He's clearly going against his own constituency with this ... then there's his switching sides on global warming.

What's next?

What legacy? That he abandoned conservatives in his last year and half in office?
Well said, Gunny. And, I think history will show Osama Bin Laden to be about the dumbest son of a bitch who ever drew breath. His pitiful attempt to destroy America from without distracted George Bush's diligent efforts to destroy her from within - and wakened an America which might have slept through the whole thing. Smart move, dickhead.
