Senator Chuck Schumer is offering a "simple solution" to break the logjam over immigration reform. The New York Democrat told NBC's "Meet the Press" that Congress can pass the law this year, but not have it take effect until 2017. Schumer said that should address Republican concerns that President Obama won't enforce the law because he'll have already left the White House. According to Schumer, getting an immigration deal done this year would also help avoid the politics leading up to the GOP presidential primaries.
