BREAKING: House GOP to vote on a resolution critical of immigration bill

The Wall Street Journal reports that Republicans in the House of Representatives will vote on a resultion today that is critical of the comprehensive immigration reform bill President Bush has pushed to revive in the Senate. From the article:
The administration had hoped to forestall such action given the timing of the Senate debate. But faced with pressure from their members, Republican leaders informed the White House that they will go ahead with the conference vote, just hours before a closely fought Senate roll call on proceeding to the bill.

Whether that resolution will sway the Senate today is unclear. Meanwhile, the AP reports that the bill will face another procedural vote today in the Senate. This vote will determine whether it goes forward.
