According to officials, the hotly debated immigration bill is dead. A bill which would legalize millions of illegal aliens in the U.S. failed Thursday evening when Senators decided to kill the bill. The bill which had bipartisan support and the endorsement of the President was blocked by Senate Republicans. The controversial bill which is being called the Grand Bargain by some has exposed problems in both parties.
The space shuttle Atlantis is green to go later this evening. The space shuttle will be visiting the International Space Center, delivering supplies and dropping off an American engineer to work on the space station. NASA has the shuttle back on the launch pad after a February hailstorm kept the shuttle from launching three months ago.
Presidential Hopefuls Tommy Thompson and Rudy Giuliani are scheduled to appear in St. Louis today.

Missouri is likely to see Republican and Democratic candidates as the race for 08 heats up.
