Victory! Senate Immigration 'Grand Bargain' Withdrawn After 45-50 Cloture Defeat (S.1348)

Bookmark and Share

The "Grand Bargain" Senate Immigration Bill (S.1348) was dealt a devastating blow and withdrawn by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid after a cloture vote on it was defeated by a vote of 45-50. The bill would have needed 60 votes to invoke cloture and go to a final passage vote.

Harry Reid is crying along with the other amnesty supporters and traitors in the Senate.


A broad immigration bill to legalize millions of people unlawfully in the United States 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 and give as many as 12 million illegal immigrants a pathway to legal status.

Senate Majority Harry Reid, D-Nevada, who had made no secret of his distaste for parts of the bill, said he would withdraw it but keep working toward eventual passage.

"I, even though disappointed, look forward to passing this bill," Reid said. But he said he needs help from the White House.

"This is the president's bill," Reid said. "... We can't do it alone over here. We need some help."

Yes, Senator Harry Reid and President Bush need some help all right. This bill was the worst piece of legislation to come down the Senate pipe in years and the fact that it was hidden under covers and then revealed so quickly in order to try and screw over the American people is evidence enough of that.

This is a victory for all Americans.

Time for a good old fashioned link o'rama of celebration.

Michelle Malkin liveblogged it. Good to see her covering immigration again for a change.

We the people have to remain focused and must continue the fight against this horrible legislation. Reid is going to bring it to the floor of the Senate for another vote. Granting amnesty to as many as 20 million illegal aliens, and allowing more of them to come to America will have a devastating effect on the quality of life in our nation and make things even more difficult for current and future generations of Americans. The President is pushing for this disaster in the making because he want to secure the Latino vote for the GOP, placate powerful big business lobbying groups who want cheap illegal labor as well as his desire to help the illegals.Most illegal aliens do not want to assimilate and many detest our nation and are here only to work and send their money back to Mexico. Why not help OUR PEOPLE AND OUR NATION by sealing the borders and start to strictly enforce the immigration laws in effect? The same laws that have been flouted and ignored in the interests of political correctness and big business greed.
