(Little Rock) (AP) – Arkansas’ U.S. senators have split on legislation that offers the chance at citizenship to the 11 million immigrants now living in the country unlawfully.

Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor voted for the historic immigration bill on Thursday, while Republican Sen. John Boozman voted against it. The Senate approved the measure on a 68-32 vote.

Pryor called the measure the “strongest border security bill in history” and praised the bipartisan vote for it. Boozman said he believed the bill approached the immigration system in the wrong way, and he said it doesn’t provide enough resources for enforcement.

The legislation offers a path to citizenship for millions in the country illegally and promises a military-style surge to secure the border.
