Immigration Bill Stalls in Senate!

The very controversial Senate immigration bill just stalled in the US Senate.
AP reported:

A White House-backed bill revamping U.S. immigration laws stalled in the U.S. Senate on Thursday, handing President George W. Bush a major legislative setback.

The sharply divided Senate refused to limit debate on the fragile compromise hammered out by a bipartisan group of senators and the White House. As a result, the legislation will be set aside and the Senate is expected to move on to other matters.
