Immigration May Figure in NJ's Close Senate Race

(CNSNews.com) - If Republican challenger Tom Kean Jr. pulls off an upset victory against incumbent Sen. Robert Menendez in New Jersey next month, New Jersey will gain an advocate for tighter border security.

If he were a member of the U.S. Senate, Kean would have voted in favor of legislation authorizing construction of a double-layered 700 mile security fence, said Jill Hazelbaker, his press secretary. The Secure Border Act of 2006 passed the full Senate last week by a margin of 80-19. Menendez and Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) both voted against the measure.
