Last night, the U.S. Senate voted 67-to-27 in favor of a tough border amendment to a comprehensive immigration bill. The proposal to double the size of the border patrol is designed to attract Republican votes for the larger bill. 

KPCC's Washington Correspondent Kitty Felde joins the show to help us get caught up on the immigration debate.
