Senate Gallery Spectators Chant 'Yes We Can, Yes We Can' As Immigration Reform Bill Passes

As Vice President Joe Biden announced that an amended immigration reform bill passed the Senate 68-32 Thursday, spectators in the gallery began chanting, "Yes we can! Yes we can!"

Biden quickly asked for the Sergeant-at-Arms to restore order in the gallery:

*****Update: According to Politics365, the gallery was cleared as a result of this demonstration.
