I hate to be the one to tell you, Save Jerseyans… but…
…New Jersey’s first Republican Senator since the 1970’s joined 13 other GOP Senators in supporting the upper chamber’s immigration reform package on Thursday evening. Don’t act too surprised.
With so many GOP defections, the bill easily passed the Senate with a filibuster-proof 68 votes. Senator Jeff Chiesa (R-NJ) had voted to advance the bill towards a final vote earlier this week.
The House of Representatives will now take up the debate.
