On April 8, 2013 Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced that it is highly likely the ‘gang of eight’ senators (four Republican and four Democratic) working on a comprehensive immigration reform bill would present the legislation by the end of this week.
It was also stated that though not everyone is happy with the considerations in the bill under work, once the bill is out this week it will create a room for an open discussion and debate, thereby making way to vote in May.
Proving a path to legal status for 11 million illegal immigrants and strengthening the border security have been the key aspects of the proposal, though Schumer also stated that there is a lot of small but important issues to be resolved along the way.
