Three Republicans Have Signed On to H.R. 15
The comprehensive immigration reform bill introduced by House Democrats has picked up three Republican co-sponsors including South Florida's Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. The bill has 186 Democratic co-sponsors.
Because there are 435 seats in the House, 218 votes would be needed to pass the bill by majority vote.
Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) has given recent interviews expressing his optimism about immigration reform.
