Schumer: Immigration Bill Could Be On Senate Floor In May


Sen. Chuck Schumer, a member working on immigration reform in the Senate, said on Sunday a bill could be on the Senate floor by May. “I am very, very optimistic that we will have an agreement among the eight of us next week. Sen. [Patrick] Leahy has agreed to have extensive markup and debate on the bill in April, and then we go to the floor, God willing, in May,” he said.
