Last week, CQ Politics reported that Georgia Senators Chambliss and Isakson planned on voting against the cloture motion on the immigration reform bill when it came back before the Senate.
According to the article…
Isakson said he and Chambliss had heard from voters back home that they didn’t have faith in another measure that promises border action because past promises have yet to be fulfilled.
Today, Georgia’s Senators joined 35 of their colleagues in opposing the motion to limit debate on S.1639.
However, the Senate will proceed with the consideration of the immigration bill because the motion to limit debate received the requisite 60 votes (the motion received 64 votes in favor).
