Senate to Continue Voting on Amendments Next Week
June 13, 2013
WASHINGTON, DC -- The following is a quote from Ali Noorani, Executive Director at the National Immigration Forum, regarding the close of Senate floor debate for the week:
"This week's floor debate brought us closer to the goal line. The overwhelming bipartisan support on the motion to proceed proved that both Democrats and Republicans are serious about making immigration reform a reality this year.
"So far, senators have filed over 100 amendments, signaling that the Senate proceedings are an open process and fertile ground for compromise. This is the way America wants Congress to work. We are confident Senators on both sides of the aisle will keep their eye focused on the ultimate goal: practical, affordable, commonsense immigration reform."
