Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., addressed his colleagues in Spanish on the Senate floor Tuesday afternoon to make the case for immigration reform.

“I ask unanimous consent I be able to deliver a floor speech on immigration reform in Spanish,” Kaine began, indicating that he would provide an English translation of his remarks for the Congressional Record.

Since no one objected to Kaine’s request, he continued in Spanish for the duration of his speech.
