The article reports on the absence of Senator Tim Johnson which is considered another obstacle that supporters of the immigration bill in the U.S. are facing. Johnson suffered from a brain hemorrhage and was kept at the sidelines during the much anticipated immigration debate. Supporters noted that Johnson's absence may be greater than just losing one vote, arguing that he may have added a much-needed voice among western Democrats to back the broad bill.
