Considered a technical amendment; had bipartisan support. Passed on a voice vote. #immigrationThune amendment fails 39 in favor, 54 opposed. #immigrationSen Hoeven (R-ND), working on own border security amendment w/ Sen Corker (R-TN), has agreed to co-sponsor @JohnCornyn's amend. #immigrationSen Ayotte (R-NH), who previously announced support for G8 #immigration bill, votes "yes" on Thune's fence amendment.Corker/Hoeven border security amend does what @marcorubio is asking 4.

It's not the fence, it's how it's triggered.@conncarroll That is a good question. But bill lets admin decide on fence - where/how, etc. Rubio wants Congress to make that decision.@hughhewitt Re fence, Rubio wants amend that details: Where, how constructed, how many cameras, how many sensors plus how success measured.@hughhewitt @conncarroll @senjohnthune Per my Rubio Q&A, expect him to vote yes on amend that orders admin to build fence & specifies specs@conncarroll @hughhewitt @SenJohnThune Prob w/ Thune's fence amend for G8 Repubs is that it delays RPI status.
