Idaho Senators Vote Against Immigration Bill

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Legislation calling for significant changes in the nation’s immigration policy has cleared the U.S. Senate — but without the approval of Idaho’s two senators. Republican Sens. Mike Crapo and Jim Risch each cast “no” votes Thursday on a bill that provides a path to citizenship to those living in America illegally and beefs up border patrols. Crapo has called for changes in the nation’s policy. But he says the Border Security, Stabilization and Modernization Act fails to do enough to stop illegal immigration at the border and ensure fairness. Idaho’s senators joined 32 other Republicans voting against the bill. Risch says immigration changes are necessary, but he says the bill overreaches. The bill now heads to the House where its future among Republicans opposed to the citizenship component is uncertain.
