As 2006 begins, Senator Kennedy is back in action, trying to gain bipartisan support for an immigration bill. But the House acts first, passing a harsh bill with no amnesty that threatens anyone who helps illegal immigrants. There are rallies all over the country urging the Senate to act. The senators and their aides work on a compromise that could actually pass unless, as Kennedy fears, politics trumps policy.
