The Sunday talk shows are abuzz with excitement over the long-awaited debate in the U.S. Senate on immigration reform. The Senate Judiciary Committee approved Senate Bill 744, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act (S. 744) and on June 11, the Senate voted 82-15 to finally debate immigration reform in earnest. The Senate seems to be more focused in its approach, while the House appears to be more divided. Based on an ambitious and aggressive timeline, the Senate is vowing to have a bill ready before the July 4 recess.
