A proposal to keep illegal immigrants from getting welfare benefits in Kentucky has passed the state Senate.  The legislation sponsored by Republican Senator Mike Wilson cleared the Senate Monday.   The bill requires welfare applicants to present documentation of U.S. citizenship or legal residency in order to be eligible.
