Washington, June 28 — The US Senate passed a landmark comprehensive immigration bill Thursday, which tops President Barack Obama's second-term agenda and advances to even greater uncertainties in the House of Representatives.
US Vice President Joe Biden, who presided the roll call from the Senate's dais, Thursday afternoon announced that the bill had been approved by 68 to 32 in the 100-member chamber, more than the majority needed to send the measure to the House, Xinhua reported.
The immigration overhaul provides 11 million undocumented immigrants currently in the country with an earned path to citizenship, which has been opposed by many Republicans in the lower chamber of US Congress.
