S. 744, A bill to provide for comprehensive immigration reform and for other purposes.
On Passage of the Bill
Senate Roll Call No. 168
113rd Congress, 1st Session

Passed: 68-32 (see complete tally)

On June 27, the Senate passed S. 744, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act by a vote of 68 to 32.  While the ACLU strongly opposed the wasteful, excessive border militarization provisions of the Act, the ACLU supported the bill as a whole because it advances the civil rights and civil liberties of aspiring American citizens.  Specifically, S. 744 creates a fair road to earned citizenship for millions of aspiring Americans, including DREAMers who were brought up in the United States, strengthens legal protections in the deeply flawed immigration jail and deportation system, and improves oversight and accountability mechanisms for DHS agencies, including immigration jails.
