0

"Senators approved sweeping legislation Thursday to remake the nation’s immigration system for the first time in a generation by spending tens of billions of dollars to bolster security along the U.S. southern border and offering a path to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants.  By a vote of 68 to 32, senators concluded a nearly month-long debate of the 1,200-page measure.  Fourteen Republicans voted with every member of the Senate Democratic caucus to approve the bill." - WaPo, June 27, 2013.
