WASHINGTON--Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) a member of a bi-partisan Senate group drafting immigration reform legislation, told Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday" he sees a deal getting done.
"We are working, literally, hours every week, four Democrats, four Republicans. And, we're making progress. There are still some tough, tough issues out there. But I feel good about it.
"There is a feeling in the room we have a responsibility to this nation after 25 years to write an immigration law, that we can live with for generations to come.
Wallace asked Durbin, "What's the biggest problem?"
Replied Durbin, "Well, there are several problems. You know, we are dealing with border enforcement, which is very important on the Republican side of the table. We are dealing with the question of the 11 million people paying their taxes, having a path to legalization and, then, ultimately, to citizenship.
"Tough issues but we are coming together and I think we can do it. I have a positive feeling."
Over in the House, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) is working with a bi-partisan group also trying to forge a deal.
