June 27th, 2013 5:08 PM

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:

If you recall, this was Barack Obama's slogan that he would often get crowds chanting during his first presidential campaign in 2008.

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