Today, in the Washington Post, Senators Charles Schumer (D-NY) and Lindsay Graham (R-SC) offered a blueprint for immigration reform. Their framework, welcomed by President Obama in a statement released today, rests on (1) ending illegal employment through "biometric" Social Security cards; (2) enhancing enforcement; (3) managing the flow of future immigration to correspond to economic realities, including low- as well as high-skilled workers; and (4) creating a fair path toward legalization for undocumented immigrants in the United States.

The devil will be in the details but we will wait and see.
