Senator Cruz Casts Lone Vote Against Immigration Bill Debate

Senator Cruz Casts Lone Vote Against Immigration Bill Debate

Senators voted 97-1 in favor of moving the bill forward for discussion.

Senator Cruz took the stand based on a long-held belief that there should not be a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants.

Despite Cruz’ vote on principle, the House bill which will be used as a vehicle for Senate debate will move forward.

In exchange from the dramatic departure on policy, President Trump seeks $25 billion in border security and other changes to the U.S. immigration system.

In order to for the bill to move forward in the Senate, at least nine Democrat senators would have to join with all 51 Republicans to create a 60-vote majority.
