Chuck Schumer and Lindsey Graham have restarted talks on a comprehensive immigration reform bill.
Schumer and Graham first teamed up on the matter in 2009, but Graham split off shortly thereafter, when Harry Reid wanted to prioritize the bill. He thought this undermined a separate piece of bipartisan legislation on climate change, and so he dropped his support of both efforts. This bit of history shows how tenuous working with Graham can be.
But it’s a new year, and the hissy fits have been subdued, and Graham is on the case.
