At the 12th Annual Daily News/CUNY Citizenship NOW! immigration call-in, New York Senator Charles Schumer announced the possibility of immigration reform being passed this summer. If immigration reform is passed it would provide a pathway to citizenship for approximately 11 million undocumented immigrants currently here in the United States.
The bill for immigration reform was approved by the Senate but has currently stalled in the House of Representatives, which mainly consists of Republicans. Senator Schumer believes that Republicans from the House of Representatives will agree to immigration reform, otherwise they would run the risk of not being re-elected if they do not give in on this matter.
