15 Republicans help Senate advance immigration amendment
Posted by Staff
The Daily Caller reports:

The Senate cast its first major vote on immigration reform Monday, voting to end debate on a compromise border security amendment that is expected to bring the necessary Republicans on board to pass the full comprehensive immigration reform bill authored by the Gang of Eight.

The Senate voted to end debate on the amendment that contains the border security compromise authored by Republican Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee and John Hoeven of North Dakota. The amendment is seen as a compromise palatable to both Republicans and Democrats that will help get the necessary number of votes to pass the immigration bill authored by the bipartisan Gang of Eight: Sens. John McCain, Chuck Schumer, Michael Bennet, Jeff Flake, Bob Menendez, Marco Rubio, Dick Durbin, and Lindsey Graham.

The vote count was 67-26, three votes shy of the 70 votes that proponents of the bill like Sen. Lindsey Graham have said they want on the final bill in order to give it momentum heading to the House.
