Sens. Chuck Schumer and John McCain, writing in The Wall Street Journal, on Tuesday touted the immigration deal that the bipartisan Gang of Eight has reached.
“Like all genuinely bipartisan efforts, this bill is a compromise,” Schumer (D-N.Y.) and McCain (R-Ariz.) wrote in the Journal. “It will not please everyone, and no one got everything they wanted. The legislation we introduce on Tuesday has more support than any past effort.”
The two lawmakers are expected to meet with President Barack Obama to discuss their proposal, which includes a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants already in the country and tougher border control. An event announcing the legislation has been postponed out of respect for the Monday explosions at the Boston Marathon.
