The article examines the passage of the immigration reform bill in the U.S. Senate by 67-27 votes in June 2013. The immigration bill will cost over 38 billion U.S. dollars which will strengthen border security, as well as impact wages and societal benefits or costs. However, the bill may face difficulty in the U.S. Congress as the Speaker said that its passage depends on the support from majority of the Republicans.
