This is a huge victory for this country. And a huge loss for the Bush Administration. And that speaks volumes. This comprehensive immigration reform, as Bush likes to call it, is dead in the Senate and most likely won't be brought up again.

But we can't let up. We still need to secure our southern border and relentlessly enforce our internal labor laws.
