Senate passes historic immigration bill

Posted:

WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- The Senate voted 68-32 to pass the most significant overhaul of the nation's immigration laws.

The bill will now go to the House where there is opposition from conservative members.

14 Senate Republicans voted in favor of the Democratic led bill.

The bill provides a 13-year path to citizenship for 11 million unauthorized immigrants in the U.S. and promises a military-style surge to secure the border.
