So, comprehensive immigration reform will be passed by this Independence Day? According to one member of the “Gang of Eight,” yes.
On Sunday, Sen. Chuck Schumer said he anticipates as many as 70 of the 100 senators will vote for the measure, which will make its way to the full Senate in a week, according to Fox News Latino.
“We are moving forward because we believe in a bipartisan way this is so vital for America, and we'll have a good bill," Schumer said. Even if the proposal passes in the Senate, it faces tough prospects in the House of Representatives, which is led by Republicans. Just ask Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., who was quoted to have said: “That Senate bill is not going to move in the House.”
