Fox News: Immigration Bill sidetracked

Update: AP has more. Democrats are obstructing again. Like I said--maybe its a good thing. Go home during the recess, and listen to your constituents.

"It's not gone forward because there's a political advantage for Democrats not to have an immigration bill," said Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter, R-Pa.

He said Democrats perceive a benefit in having only a GOP-written House bill that criminalizes being an illegal immigrant. That bill has prompted massive protests across the country, including a march by 500,000 people in Los Angeles last month.

Just heard it on Fox. I'm glad. Mabe the Senators can start listening to their constituents, and firm up their backbones.
