U.S. Senator Jeffrey Chiesa (R-NJ) sided with the majority tonight, 67-27, voting to advance the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act to its next procedural plateau; next up is a potential filibuster battle on Wednesday.
Senator Chiesa’s been somewhat of a mixed bag for conservatives on the immigration front heading into the final round of voting.
Back on June 11th, he voted to advance the legislation past its initial procedural hurdle on the Senate floor; Chiesa subsequently voted in favor of a border fence opposed by Democrats and a few Republicans including Marco Rubio.
