Senate Majority Leader
Dancing to Bush's Tune
|Lou Dobbs Tonight
-- CNN -- February 8
Bill Frist: ..
I assume sometime over the course of the next several months
we will be dealing with some element of immigration, but no commitments
have been made.
Ed Henry: (CNN )So Senator Frist is not clearly saying
that he is even going to bring up James Sensenbrenner's proposal
this year, even if they pass the House. Another roadblock is
that even if they do get taken up in the Senate, House leaders
are talking about adding the Sensenbrenner bill-merging it with
the Iraq war funding bill that will be coming up soon-a must-past
legislation that they think will make it easier, make it faster
to the President's desk for his signature, but Senate leaders
said they would like to keep the Iraq funding bill clean.
