Death throes of immigration bill?

The New York Times is reporting that another cloture vote is set for tonight, June 7. If it fails and debate continues, Harry Reid will probably table the bill for months.

Although it's sometimes a good sign when a compromise bill comes under attack from the extremes of both sides, in the Senate that can be a liability. It will be interesting to see whether the piecemeal amendments stop or not.
