Senate Immigration Legislation Imperiled

June 28th, 2007

According to the Washington Post, June 28, 2007, “Top legislative aides in both parties predicted today’s vote would be very close but would fall short of keeping the proposal alive.”

This morning, the Senate will vote on whether to cut off debate and move to a final tomorrow.  If it does not get the 60 votes necessary to proceed to the final vote, then it has little prospect for success this year.  Legisation could move forward on more narrow issues, such as border security and worksite verification.
