“‘Senator Graham and I have talked, and we are resuming the talks that were broken off two years ago,’ Schumer said on NBC’s ‘Meet The Press.’ ‘We had put together a comprehensive detailed blueprint on immigration reform. It had the real potential for bipartisan support.’

‘Graham and I are talking to our colleagues about this right now,’ he said, ‘and I think we have a darn good chance using this blueprint to get something done this year.’”

President George W. Bush put forward legislation for immigration reform and was rebuffed by his own party. Here we are, eight years later, and bipartisanship finally joins the cause.

See what you can do after you have your ass handed to you?
