Immigration 'Point of Order' brought by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, fails in a 74-22 vote; incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky, and numerous other Republicans vote against Cruz's order - @cspan broadcast
Editor's note: The Senate cleared the procedural hurdle on the pending federal spending bill, invoking cloture with a 77-19 vote. Senate is now voting on point of order on immigration brought by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. Cruz has said the vote 'allows Republicans to also show they are committed to ending Obama's amnesty once and for all.' - Jimmy
Editor's note: More: If cloture gets 60 votes, Senate will then move to a 'Constitional Point of Order' made by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, on immigration; Cruz's point will need 51 votes to be sustained, Democrats likely to defeat it - @ChadPergram - Jimmy
Immigration is the movement of people into another country or region to which they are not native in order to settle there, especially as permanent residents or future citizens. Immigrants are motivated to leave their countries for a variety of reasons, including a desire for economic prosperity, political issues, family re-unification, escaping conflict or natural disaster, or simply the wish to change one's surroundings.
