Senator Schumer appeared on Meet the Press Sunday morning to discuss a plan that he says could be a breakthrough in the fight for immigration reform.

Schumer says that this new deal would secure the border and crack down on employers who hire illegal aliens. It would also create a pathway for illegal immigrants who are already in the country. Schumer also said that the plan has bi-partisan support as well as support from business and labor officials.

The bill still needs review before taking any action.
