Washington, UNITED STATES: US Representative Dana Rohrabacher, Republican from California, testifies on the business perspectives of comprehensive immigration reform during a hearing by the US House Judiciary committee's subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security, and International Law, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, 06 June 2007. A US Senate bill granting a path to citizenship for around 12 million illegal immigrants narrowly survived a key test Wednesday with the defeat of amendment which could have killed it. Senators knocked back the amendment, which supporters of the bill said could have fractured their tenuous cross-party coalition, by 51 votes to 46.
