Senate Debates Immigration Reform Bill

Washington, DC
Wednesday, June 12, 2013

As the Senate continues to debate the Immigration bill, senators discuss amendments they are proposing to the legislation. On Wednesday, Sen. Dan Coats (R-IN) and Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) spoke on the Senate floor about their amendments to secure the U.S. borders. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), a member of the "Gang of 8" which put together the immigration bill, claimed that the bill addresses border security and argued that Coat's amendment would only sideline the reform act.

As of Wednesday afternoon, bill managers were negotiating over which amendments to debate and when to schedule votes.
