Senators oppose immigration bill
JACKSON — Both of Mississippi’s U.S. senators voted against an immigration bill that passed the chamber last week.
Republicans Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker say they consider the bill flawed.
It would still need to pass the U.S. House before it could become law.
Cochran says the legislation would not guarantee that U.S. borders will be truly secured or that people would stop entering the country without permission.
Wicker says the current immigration system is broken and he doesn’t believe the bill would fix it.
