The Senate rang down the curtain on Act II of the immigration drama today to what will be decidedly mixed reviews. The "Great Compromise" can be safely archived and those Senators clever (or needful) enough to have voted on both "sides" of the bill can point to whichever vote is most helpful in their next campaign.
Nothing was done, nothing was achieved, nothing resolved - all in all a rather good day for the Senate and a fine prelude for Act III in which the "People's House" will "respond to the will of the electorate" and...
Well, that's the hard part, isn't it? After all, if existing laws were enforced, "immigration" wouldn't be an issue at all. In fact, if the Congresscritters can just hold on and continue to do absolutely nothing, time will once again cure an ill. Funny how that works.
