Proponents of the Immigration Bill revive their efforts this week as the measure heads towards an expected final vote just before the July 4 holiday -- if it even makes it that far. US News and World report has a recap of news coverage on the effort as the bill heads down the final stretch.
- U.S. News and World Report reports even if Bush "is successfully corralling GOP senators, experts say the debate is alienating Hispanic voters." The GOP "could pay dearly if it cannot stop bleeding Latino voters."
- Asked about the bill on CNN's Late Edition, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, a key undecided Republican, said, "I don't like what's in it now. I think the amnesty, the cutoff after five years of the guest worker program is, I think, completely unworkable."
- The Wall Street Journal reports a first test will come Tuesday "when the Senate votes on a procedural motion to expedite consideration of the bill. The White House is confident of getting the 60 votes needed. But that could require 22 Republicans."
