Immigration Bill Defeated: A much needed Defeat for Bush and a Victory for Average Americans!

Immigration Bill Defeated: not a defeat for Democrats but A victory for average Americans and a Defeat for Bush!
In a stunning setback for President Bush and other advocates of a proposed immigration law overhaul, the Senate voted today to block a final vote on the legislation, almost certainly dooming any further effort at reform in Congress this year.
On a vote of 46-53, the Senate fell 14 votes shy of the 60 needed to cut off an inevitable filibuster and move to a final vote on the bill, which had been cobbled together in recent months by a bipartisan alliance of about a dozen senators working in concert with the Bush administration.
Both Republican senators from Texas — Kay Bailey Hutchison and John Cornyn, who had battled for weeks to make the bill more conservative — voted, as expected, to bring it down, bucking their president on his chief domestic policy priority.
I have been looking at comments about this and I see it has been depicted as a defeat for Democrats but I don't see it that way. That Bill was not set up for us and it would not have benefited America or most illegal immigrants. I am glad to see it defeated and believe it to be a victory for average Americans and our America not Bush's idea for a new society.
Myself I thank Kay Bailey Hutchison and John Cornyn and now we will see if Bush really wants to secure the Border to protect us or wants to keep it open as he prepares his North American Union.

Look for Bush and his co-horts to revive this again before years end, they were already throwing out ideas for more border security money.

They will never spend more on border security, because they will have a borderless society in the future.

At least it was defeated for today.

Supposedly it was defeated for good. I saw Bush come on and say so, admitting defeat. The crybaby didn't get his way. You know I believe Bush is clandestinely pushing forth his plans for a UNA also. I sent you on yesterdays comments a link to a very interesting show on that with Canadian and Mexican Reps. I sent it to another doubter who thinks those of us that see this happening are tin foil hats.
Maybe we are but I seriously doubt it. If Bush really wants border security and enforcement then rewrite the bill and make the first priorities funding and securing the border while dropping that stupid fence. At the same time go after employers of illegals. Only then can we start discussing the issue of existing illegals. However you know that will not happen.
