Today the Senate passed its immigration reform bill, S. 744. It was a momentous occasion that included Vice President Biden who presided over the vote. The fight now moves on to the House, where there will surely be challenges, but today we celebrate this historic vote.
As our President and CEO said in her statement after the vote: “Let me be very clear: Latino voters, who generated the game-changing momentum in this debate, will remember this vote. They will particularly remember those who stood with—and who stood against—our community and, most importantly, our country’s best interests. The question now is whether the House of Representatives will stand for progress or prevent it.”
Now, check out what we won in S. 744. (Thanks, America’s Voice, for the awesome graphic!)
