At a press conference Monday afternoon announcing an immigration reform deal, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) showered Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) with praise, saying his Republican colleague has been the glue holding the bipartisan group of senators together.
"His wisdom, his strength, his courage, his steadfastness and many other adjectives that I'll skip at the moment, have really been inspiring to me and, I think, to all of us," Schumer said.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Monday said he and the other senators who support immigration reform believe 2013 will be the year Congress "finally gets it done."
"The politics on this issue have been turned upside down," Schumer said on Capitol Hill. "For the first time ever, there is more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. We believe we have a window of opportunity to act, but we will only succeed if the effort is bipartisan."
