(CNN) – The U.S. Senate on Monday signaled strong support in a test vote for a bipartisan proposal to strengthen border security, giving a boost to prospects for passage of sweeping immigration reform legislation.
Supporters of the border measure, which also covers major elements of the larger immigration bill, garnered more than enough backing in the procedural tally, 67 to 27, to move forward. Some senators did not vote due to travel delays.
The true test is in the House. We will see how much minority outreach they really are interested in. I strongly suspect that it will not be much. Just as they lost the black vote in the 60's over segregation, the female vote over reproductive rights this century, they will lose the Hispanic vote over immigration, they keep coming up on the wrong side of history. The world is changing and they cannot stop it. This does not bode well for their future.
Time to vote the senators that vote yea out of office.
If anybody remembers, we have passed laws to build the fence in the past. It was never built. Why does anyone think that the fence will be built THIS time with THIS law? Anybody???
All those who voted for that bill, are traitors to America.
I see the term "Surge" being used once again. Funny how certain politicians and radical organizations really don't like this process.
And will lose in the House. Same as it ever was.
Well, I could be wrong. Maybe House Republicans will vote Yea if we build 15,000 more Ospreys to circle pointlessly overhead and implant all Mexicans, citizens or not, with little cobalt chips that can be tracked by 700 new satellites. At least House GOPhers don't have to worry about the whole gay thing - the Senate disabled their rights already.
Tighten it...h1-b, j1 , l1 visas people come to rob benefits ..
It will die in the House, because the GOP hates minorities, and have no interest in immigration reform.
