According to Fair
Sen Larry Craig's Ag Jobs amnesty amendment did not get the 60 votes needed for cloture an was rejected by a vote of 53 to 45 against.
Senator Chambliss/Kyl amendment which also would have expanded the H02A agricultural guestworker program but would not have provided current illegal aliens with a path to citizenship was rejected by a vote of 21yeas-77nays

There still is nothing on the Mikulski-Gregg amendment , it needs 60 No votes on it too. If there are fewer than 60 votes for cloture, there is a strong sense that the amendment will be withdrawn an we will have won. NumbersUSa source.

The Mikulski amendment did get voted out of cloture, by a big margin...

Then the actual amendment passed by a vote of 94-6!!!
