Schumer's immigration compromise: Pass a bill now but let it take effect in 2017

“There’s a simple solution,” he said on “Meet the Press.” “Let’s enact the law this year, but simply not let it actually start until 2017, after President Obama’s term is over.”

Schumer said it was ”false” to think Congress could achieve a result on immigration reform in 2015 or 2016; the time to act is now.
