NBC: Senate Has Votes to Pass Immigration Bill Even With Filibuster

Rate this Entry

NBC News' Political Unit believes that the Senate immigration bill already has 60 votes, enough to overcome a filibuster and pass the bill. However, they seem to be a bit optimistic in my view. They assume that all 54 Democrats will support the bill. I'm not so sure this is the case, particularly for a few of the Southerners. They also believe that Orrin Hatch is a yes just because he voted the bill out of the Judiciary Committee. But he warned that he might not support the bill on the floor if additional changes were not made.


The piece also discussed Senator Rubio and Senator Cornyn and efforts to tighten the enforcement language in the bill. NBC believes that the Democrats won't allow for Cornyn's changes to be added and that only measures that are consistent with the Gang of Eight's original core deal will be permitted.


The article also throws out some Republican names as potential yes votes that may be overly optimistic. They include Missouri's Roy Blount and Nebraska's Mike Johanns.

    Think Lamar Alexander will support the bill but Donnelly will not and neither will Pryor, Landrieu or Kagan. Hoeven and Thune may get behind it in the end along with Heller.
