The Washington Post reports on the vote on Friday evening on the border bill. The details of what was passed are irrelevant at this point; they are as predictive as forecasting the winner of a baseball game with a 2-1 score in the bottom of the 2nd.
The key point:
The future of the immigration bill is unclear. In the Senate, bipartisan support is growing for legislation co-authored by Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) that would combine border enforcement measures with a guest-worker program. But a large number of House conservatives say they will never accept such a measure.
“I really worry that anything we do over here will be a vehicle for a guest-worker program,” said Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-Ariz.).
Tancredo agreed: “Now the fight begins.”
