Senate Republicans Lose Bid To Block Suit Against Arizona Law

Senate Republicans Lose Bid To Block Suit Against Arizona Law

WASHINGTON — Senate Democrats on Wednesday turned back a move by Republicans to block the Justice Department from pursuing its lawsuit seeking to overturn Arizona's controversial immigration law.
The bid by South Carolina Republican Jim DeMint to nix the lawsuit came out on the losing end of a 55-43 vote. Five Democrats voted to block the lawsuit while two Republicans voted against the measure.
