Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer (NY): Bipartisan Agreement Required to Pass Immigration Reform

by Colonel on February 18, 2013

“Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer – one of the “Gang of Eight” senators working toward a bipartisan immigration overhaul on Capitol Hill – said Sunday he was not “upset” with a recently leaked draft of the president’s own immigration bill.

At the same time, however, Schumer said real change will only occur if revamping immigration policy is done in a bipartisan fashion.

“It’s obvious that if a Democrat, the president or anyone else, puts out what they want on their own, it’s going to be different than when you have a bipartisan agreement,” he said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “But the only way we’re going to get something done is with a bipartisan agreement.”

An administration official told CNN the specifics of the plan were accurate as of the last draft this official had seen.
