Senator Graham says that Washington is losing the publics trust and the Republican Party is losing its sense of duty regarding immigration reform. However, he stated that he will continue to work with Senator Schumer on immigration reform despite it being a "heavy lift" and Washington's absorption with health care.
Schumer says the bill can be passed if they can get a second Republican vote. The bill has broad support from business, labor, and the religious community including the evangelicals. "We even have Lou Dobbs and Bill O'Reilly saying positive things about our proposal. I would urge that we try to get this done, because it's so important for America."
