Bush to Push Immigration Bill at Capitol

WHITE HOUSE (AP) - President Bush goes to Capitol Hill Tuesday to try to salvage the immigration bill that was shelved in the Senate last week.

Bush will have lunch with skeptical Republican senators and do a little arm-twisting for the bill that would tighten border security and legalize up to 12 million unlawful immigrants, stalled last week in the face of broad Republican opposition.

GOP Senator Jeff Sessions of Mobile was among those opposed to
the legislation.

He told CNN that Bush needs to help lawmakers write a better bill and not push a bill that his fellow Republicans can't support.
