Would it make sense to lobby the White House with web fax and phone campaign? Despite his shortcomings
Presdient Bush is generally pro-immigration -both Skilled and Unskilled.
I know the bill has a long way to go. Perhaps they might bring this attention to the law makers??

Nothing is better than this bill.

After the "grand bargain" this is grand posturing by the dems. The pro-illegal lobby is day dreaming that they could railroad everyone else and push this "grand bargain". It ain't going to happen. The bill will have to go through some serious fixing.

Here is Attorney Siskind's take on this:

http://blogs.ilw.com/gregsiskind/
CLOTURE DEFEATED; REID PULLS BILL FOR NOW
For those of you who don't know what the term means, it's a vote to end debate and get to a final vote on a bill. If you want to kill a bill, you can defeat a cloture motion with just 40 votes. That's the so-called filibuster, though they don't do it with the marathon debates like in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington with Jimmy Stewart.

Anyway, Senator Reid tried to invoke cloture this morning and was soundly defeated. And he tried again this evening and was just defeated 45-50. Reid has just announced that he is pulling the bill from the Senate floor. He indicated that the bill could still be done in the next few weeks.

My quick take - there's a deal being negotiated behind the scenes similar to what we saw a few weeks ago. I have good reason to believe this is happening, though it's hard to say how long it will take. But it will involve some very important changes to the bill. I would expect that the bill will be back in a week or two. And there will be a negotiation on the number of amendment votes.

By the way, if this sounds familiar, a similar drama played out last year on the amendments issue. And a deal was reached then. It will be this time as well, in my opinion
