Senate Breaking News: Immigration Reform Passes Senate, House Leadership Calls Bill A "Pipe Dream"

Wochit 0:58 mins

Immigration reform is half-way to its goal: the Senate passed a comprehensive bill this afternoon 68 to 32. The bill is loaded with tech-industry goodies, including more foreign visas, a special visa for startup entrepreneurs, and unlimited space for brainiac inventors and scientists. However, Republican leaders in the House of Representatives have unspecified issues with the bill and say the Senate version is a "pipe dream." In a bipartisan vote, the Senate passed a sweeping, historic overhaul of the nation's immigration system ? the first attempt to tackle such reform in six years. Senate Agriculture Committee Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow said that the proposed purchase of Smithfield Foods, the world's largest pork processor, by Shuanghui International of China will be examined at a July 10 hearing.
