Trending In Our News Feeds – Senate passes immigration bill. The Senate passed the Gang of Eight’s comprehensive immigration reform bill on Thursday by a vote of 68-32. The bill made it through the Senate with only one major change: the Hoeven-Corker amendment, which significantly ramps up control of the southern border. In order for immigration reform to become law, the House must pass the bill or one of its own. Both chambers will then have to sign off on a compromise bill patched together by a committee. The GOP controlled House presents the biggest hurdle for the bill.
