US Senate approves landmark immigration bill

Jun 27 2013, 9:00pm CDT | by

Washington, June 28 (IANS) 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.

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 Senate bill now may serve as the biggest boost in decades for the issue of immigration overhaul to become legislation, but is well expected to meet greater resistance from the House.

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.
