Major Defeat on Immigration Bill

Thursday, 28 June 2007 12:00 AM

WASHINGTON -- President George W. Bush suffered a major defeat on his plan to overhaul immigration laws on Thursday when the Senate refused to close debate and advance the legislation.

The bill that would have given a path to U.S. citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants fell short of the 60 needed in the 100-member Senate to advance toward a final vote.

Bush has sought immigration reform for years, but the vote made it unlikely he would achieve that significant domestic legislative victory before leaving office in a year and a half.
