A bipartisan U.S. Senate voted Thursday to end debate on sweeping immigration reform, clearing the way for the bill to pass the chamber.
The 68-32 vote was shy of the bill’s authors’ goal of winning 70 votes for the legislation, but still demonstrated strong bipartisan support that should create a mandate for the Republican-led House to act next month on the issue, The Hill reported.
Fourteen Republicans voted to end debate. No Democrats voted nay.
