In a 50 to 45 vote, the Senate today “voted against cutting off debate on an immigration compromise bill and advancing the bill. Sixty votes were needed for approval of the motion.” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said. “I, even though disappointed, look forward to passing this bill. I have every desire to complete this legislation, and we all have to work — the president included — to figure out a way to get this bill passed.”
