Senate Passes Immigration Bill

Senate passed the immigration bill 68-32, which will now move on to the House. The floor gallery erupted in “yes we can,” and Senator Reid was seen to hug his fellow senators in celebration. This monumental legislation addresses the longtime debate over illegal aliens and border security, and is truly a remarkable moment in American history. The strategy was to get enough senators behind the bill to pressure a swift passage in the House, but the Republican majority chamber might be a little more hesitant to pass the bill.
