Schumer sees ‘Gang of Eight’ deal this week on immigration
Mr. Graham and Mr. McCain also had praise for Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican, who is a member of the negotiating team who’s acted as a bridge to conservatives but also has kept advocates and other lawmakers guessing about whether he’ll ultimately support the bill.
“Marco Rubio has been a game-changer in my party. He will be there only if the Democrats will embrace a guest-worker program and a merit-based immigration system to replace the broken one,” Mr. Graham said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
Meanwhile two lawmakers involved in writing a bipartisan immigration bill in the House, Reps. Luis V. Gutierrez, Illinois Democrat, and Mario Diaz-Balart, Florida Republican, sounded optimistic that they, too, would have a deal soon that could be reconciled with the Senate agreement.
“I am very, very optimistic that the House of Representatives is going to have a plan that is going to be able to go to a conference with the Senate in which we’re going to be able to resolve this,” Mr. Gutierrez said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
