The U.S. Senate today passed its version of a comprehensive immigration reform bill by a vote of 68-32. All 32 “no” votes came from Republicans. Today’s vote now moves the center of attention to the Republican-majority House of Representatives which has been struggling to find a path forward on the issue. Today’s vote is a major step toward reform, but it does not change the law. There will be no immigration reform unless the House takes up the issue and manages to approve some type of legislation that could then go to conference to be merged with the Senate bill.
