ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the ending of the immigration reform in the U.S. According to Senator Edward Kennedy, the reform is ended when the motion to appeal cloture drop to 14 votes instead of the expected 60 votes. It fails because of lack of motivation from some Democrats and the way the administration treated the Grand Old Party (GOP) members. The author states that the scheme indicates a stunning defeat for the proponents of the measure who like to serve the public office.
