Debate over Immigration Bill Put on Ice

Hosted by

Senate Republicans today killed what may be President Bush's last hope for immigration reform in his presidency.  Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina said the bill had become "a war" between Americans and their government.  In a brief but pointed reaction, President Bush called the status quo in immigration "unacceptable" and called on Congress to "prove to the American people that it can come together on hard issues."  Jonathan Weisman covers Congress for the Washington Post.
