Despite the fact that the Senate passed a comprehensive and bipartisan immigration reform bill, former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney told Fox News Sunday that if the GOP retook the Senate on Tuesday an immigration reform bill would almost certainly make it to President Barack Obama’s desk for a signature.

“You’re going to see a provision to secure the border, deal with those who come here illegally, and to make sure our immigration policies are more open and transparent to the many people who do want to come here illegally,” Romney promised. “That’s going to happen. You’re going to see a bill actually reach the desk of the president if we finally have someone besides Harry Reid in the Senate.”
