(April 7) The U.S. Senate left Washington on April 7 without voting on an immigration bill.

A compromise bill that appeared to have bipartisan support Thursday failed to advance amid disagreements about how many amendments would be allowed.

The bill sought to address the pathway to legalization for millions of nonagricultural undocumented workers already in the U.S., said a legislative aide to Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho.

The Senate will recess until April 24, and the aide said Sen. Craig is hopeful that a comprehensive immigration reform bill that includes AgJobs will win approval then.

“This needs to be dealt with. We want to come back and get something done,” he said. The good news, he said, is that the AgJobs proposal is in each one of the comprehensive immigration bills the Senate is considering.
