Whither the Immigration "Reform"?

The Senate immigration "reform" bill is struggling for life on the floor today following a poison pill inserted, not by the conservatives who have been so vocal against it, but by ultra-liberal Byron Dorgan of ND, last night to end the temporary worker program after 5 years. Two votes for cloture today have failed, and if a third goes down to defeat later this afternoon, the future of the bill is clouded to say the least.

I hope it fails, but I suspect that the unholy trinity of a cabal of Republicans selling out their conservative base joined by a cabal of Democrats selling out their union base joined by a President intent on destroying what remains of his political party will still find a way to pass this "reform" into law. We'll see...
