Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), one of the eight senators working on a bipartisan immigration reform effort, applauded President Obama’s immigration statement Tuesday. In a statement, Schumer said:

“The President is handling this perfectly. He is using the bully pulpit to focus the nation’s attention on the urgency of immigration reform and set goals for action on this issue. But he is also giving lawmakers on both sides the space to form a bipartisan coalition.“
