Senate to revive immigration bill

The Senate won its first major battle for Comprehensive Immigration Reform today with the motion to revive the stalled immigration bill by a 64-35 approval. the cloture motion called for the Senate to proceed with the bill.

As it stands right now, twenty four amendments are lined up to be debated and considered before the end of this week, with a motion to force an end to all debate by Thursday. Something similar happened last time but the Senator Reid failed to get the motion to pass.

More to come as updates become available!
