Schumer/Graham

The Schumer/Graham Blueprint

Senators Chuck Schumer (D-New York) and Lindsay Graham (R-SC) are the only legislators who have agreed to work on immigration reforms.  On March 18, 2010, they announced a "Blueprint" with an ouline of the legislation they may introduce to the Senate.  President Obama immediately declared his support and urged Congress "to act at the earliest possible opportunity".  He also pledged his cooperation in the effort to secure bipartisan consensus to move toward comprehensive immigration reform.

The Blueprint has already drawn many opinions related to its strong enforcement/control/righteousness language.  Here are some examples:
