SC senators divide on immigration

South Carolina’s U-S senators yesterday split their votes on the bill that overhauls immigration. It passed on a 68 to 32 bi-partisan vote. Lindsey Graham voted yes, but his South Carolina Republican colleague, Tim Scott, voted no. The bill provides for a military-style effort to secure the border with Mexico. It also offers citizenship to immigrants who live in the U-S illegally. On the Senate floor, Graham called the bill “a good solution to a hard problem. In a prepared statement, Scott said, “I am hopeful that we will arrive at a more focused final product that fixes our immigration challenges and finally addresses the realities along our border.”
