US Senate passes far-reaching immigration reform bill

The US Senate has passed a broad immigration reform bill that includes a path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants.

The 68-32 vote comes after months of debate and a recent deal to boost border security spending significantly.

Vice-President Joe Biden presided over the vote and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made the rare request of asking all 99 of his colleagues to be present and to vote from their desks.
