WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) today joined Senators Charles Schumer (D-NY), John McCain (R-AZ), Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) at a press conference to unveil a basic set of principles that are designed to guide legislation on comprehensive immigration reform. Together with Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Michael Bennet (D-CO) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ), this “Gang of Eight” has been working in a bipartisan effort since late last year to iron out the terms of what must be included in any immigration reform legislation to ensure that it can successfully work its way through both chambers and ultimately to the President’s desk.
