Final Vote on Immigration Bill Passage In Senate Tomorrow






Tomorrow, a final vote in the Senate on the immigration reform bill could send the issue to the House of Representatives.

“Now is the time to do it…I hope that we can get the strongest possible vote out of the Senate so that we can then move to the House and get this done before the summer break,” said President Barack Obama.

Officials speculate that some changes to the bill are still possible before it leaves the Senate floor that could help its popularity.

Among many different measures, the Senate bill would create a 13-year pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, heightened border security, and the expansion of the E-Verify system.

Senator Bob Corker said, “My sense is we’re going to pass an immigration bill out of the United States Senate which will be no doubt historic and I think something that’s very, very important to this nation.”
