Schumer: Immigration Deal This Week
I’m sure it will have lots of new liberal voters via amnesty.
Check it out:
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said on Face the Nation today that he hoped that the Senate would come to an agreement on immigration reform this week. “All of us have said that there will be no agreement until the eight of us agree to a big, specific bill, but hopefully we can get that done by the end of the week,” Schumer explained. Sitting alongside him and nodding was Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who stated, “There will be a great deal of unhappiness about this proposal because everybody didn’t get what they wanted. There are entrenched positions on both sides of this issue as far as business and labor.”
But while Schumer and McCain expressed optimism over immigration reform, the White House signaled that it would put a poison pill in the immigration bill. Dan Pfeiffer, senior advisor to President Obama, refused to say whether Obama would sign legislation making a pathway to citizenship contingent on achieving border security. All he would do is offer a milquetoast endorsement of the Senate strategy. This weekend, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano visited the border in Arizona to declare that border security is already stellar.
