Immigration bill to pass Senate by according to Senator Chuck Schumer
Senator Chuck Schumer one of the lawmakers involved in drafting and negotiating a bipartisan bill to overhaul immigration is expecting the bill to pass Senate by the 4th of July holiday. The Republicans still believe that they would write their own version “one piece at a time”. Senator Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said he anticipates as many as 70 of the 100 senators will vote for the measure heading to the full Senate on June 10.Even if it passes there, the proposal faces tough prospects in the Republican-led House, where lawmakers are at work on their own piecemeal approach that could stall a pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million immigrants living in this country illegally.
