Schumer Predicts Mass Protests if GOP Blocks Immigration Bill

Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) predicted "there could be massive demonstrations in Washington if House Republicans try to block a bill to grant legal status to millions of immigrants," The Hill reports.

Said Schumer: "This has the potential of becoming the next major civil rights movement. I could envision in the late summer or early fall if Boehner tries to bottle the bill up or put something in without a path to citizenship -- if there's no path to citizenship, there's not a bill -- but if he tries to bottle it up or do things like that, I could see a million people on the Mall in Washington."
