//News// U.S. immigration bill revived

U.S. senators on Tuesday voted 64-35 to revive the immigration reform bill, that would grant legal status to 12 million illegal immigrants in the country.

Several amendments to the bill are scheduled to be discussed and voted on this week by senators, who early this month thumbed down the bill. President George Bush mustered all his influence just to convince legislators to get the bill back for debates. Bush wants immigration reform to be his legacy as he steps down from office next year.

A final vote is set on Friday before Congress takes a break for the July 4 holiday.
