Schock on proposed immigration bill
U.S. Congressman Aaron Schock is pleased with the Senate proposal of the immigration bill. Schock says he's concerned about potential "poison pill" amendments that could be added by lawmakers, but he's hopeful the current basic proposal will emerge:
"Right now, I do think the bill the Senate has proposed, there are more benefits than negatives, but that doesn't mean the bill can't be improved. It doesn't mean we're going to take it cold turkey from the Senate over in the House. We'll put our own fingerprint on it, but I do think this is a good sign,” Schock says.
