FILE – In this Jan. 28, 2013, file photo Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., left, and Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., right, confer as they and a bipartisan group of other leading senators announce their agreement on the principles of sweeping legislation to rewrite the nation's immigration laws during a news conference at the Capitol in Washington. Eight senators meet in private several times a week, alternating between McCain’s and Schumer’s offices, and in a capital riven by partisanship and gridlock, they are determined to be the exception and actually get something done. This is immigration reform's "Gang of Eight". Others in the group, not shown here, are Sen.s Marco Rubio, R-Fla., Robert Menendez, D-N.J., Lindsey Graham, R–S.C., Dick Durbin, D-Ill., Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and Michael Bennet, D-Colo. (AP Photo/J.
