Schumer’s plan to please GOP on border security could turn off Dems

While much of the talk on the immigration reform bill’s entrance onto the Senate floor has focused on the divide among Republicans, an article in POLITICO on Wednesday points out that Democrats may imperil the overhaul of the immigration system as well.

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., may find some resistance from other Democratic leaders as he tries to garner more than 70 votes in the Senate to ensure that the bill has the momentum it needs to pass in the House.

Host Carmen Russell-Sluchansky spoke with POLITICO congressional reporter Seung Min Kim to discuss the story.
