Bipartisan vote propels immigration overhaul toward Senate passage
A landmark overhaul of the nation's immigration policy is likely to clear the Senate with strong bipartisan support by the end of the week following an initial text vote on Monday. That 67-27 vote in favor of a Republican amendment to bolster border security shows momentum for the overall bill, with 15 Republicans siding with 52 Democrats -- two, including Colorado's Mark Udall, missed the vote Monday due to travel delays -- in support of the measure.
