Senate agrees to resume immigration debate

A divided Senate agreed Tuesday to reopen debate on a controversial immigration bill as President Bush lobbied for its passage. The Senate voted 64-35 to open talks on the legislation, though final passage is uncertain, given the level of opposition to the legislation that would legalize millions of undocumented workers along with hardening the nation's borders.
