    Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) said Friday that the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill doesn’t have enough votes to pass the Senate.

    The bill won approval from the Senate Judiciary Committee in a 13-5 vote, but Menendez said it lacks the 60 votes necessary to clear the Senate — despite the bill's four Republican co-sponsors.

    “We don’t currently have 60 votes identified in the Senate,” Menendez said in an interview with Univision. “We need to add more votes on the floor. That means that the community in your state, in every state, should be contacting your state’s two U.S. Senators saying that they want comprehensive immigration reform, that they are going to judge their political future based on this vote.”

    Supporters of the bill are pushing for a strong bipartisan vote of 70 or more to put pressure on the House to take up the legislation.

    In addition to the four GOP co-sponsors, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) voted for the bill in committee, though he has not committed his support in the floor vote.

    Liberalism is just communism sold by the drink.

    The only immigration reform we need is to start enforcing our immigration laws

    We have all the laws, permits and provisions necessary for as many immigrants as we can handle already on the books, why do we need laws to protect people that break laws to be passed? This country is turning into an illogical idiotic fucking joke and very few seem to see it.

    Good. I hope this thing fails as badly as the assault on the 2nd Amendment did.

    Can't wait to see 44 throw a tantrum over this failure.

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    I tried, but the forces of negativism and regression got all oppressive on my ass. Republicans hate brown people, including Marco Rubio, Bob Martinez. Susanna Martinez, all of Jeb Bush's children, Ben Nighthorse Campbell, Bobby and Cissy (Jindal and Haley aka the Patel twins) , and assort southeast Asians in various elected positions.

    If thine arm doeth offend thee, cut it off.
