    Oui, je pense que tuer dans l'oeuf conviendrait. L'article parle d'un projet de loi qui a été très rapidement rejeté.
    Plus de contexte
    Last week the Senate immigration bill was smothered in its crib by the same folks who said the status quo was unacceptable. Now the status quo is what they have. Congratulations. Hope they like it.
