Schumer, Graham Developing Immigration Reform Framework

Sen. Charles Schumer

Sens. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday he and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-Texas) are working on a framework for immigration reform, according to National Journal.

Dan Friedman writes Graham and Schumer initially drafted the framework in 2010 but it failed due to issues regarding feasibility of enforcement.

Schumer said he expects Congress can use the framework as a basis for immigration legislation, which he called a top priority for 2013.

One aspect of the framework would involve creating a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already in the U.S., he said.

Graham said in the interview the process for becoming a citizen would take up to 10 years.

The framework would also include stiffer punishments for businesses employing illegal workers, issuing tamper-proof Social Security cards and establishing a temporary worker program.

  1. We don’t care what Traitors to the U.S. want. The fact, that Traitor Schumer and Graham are representing Illegal Aliens, in our sovereign U.S. Congress makes them Traitors. Our U.S. government is paid for, by the U.S. CITIZENS and it is their U.S. Congress to be represented. Illegals are not to be given a voice, or representation by our paid U.S. government officials who took and oath to this country, are paid by this country and took and oath to this country, called the United States of America.

    All Illegals have to go and Traitors must be punished.
