The Senate voted against invoking closure on the CIR bill this morning. This probably lays the issue to rest until after the Presidential election. The topic will likely be too hot to touch before then. This is just another example of Congress failing to deal with a tough issue. Hopefully the tide will turn with the next attempt.
I will therefore shift the focus of my blog back to current immigration-related news and developments, and there are many. Even without a complete overhaul of the system, new cases, regulations and interpretive memos from various agencies are published almost daily.
A link to the CNN.com story on the failure of the Senate to pass this bill can be found to the left.
