Encouraged by bipartisan consensus on comprehensive #immigration reform. Looking forward to POTUS speech tomorrow.— Mark Warner (@MarkWarner) January 28, 2013
Both Democrats and Republicans in Congress have signaled openness to passing immigration reform in 2013. Earlier on Monday, White House press secretary Jay Carney said President Obama "welcomes the efforts" by the eight senators.
"This is a big deal. This is an important development," Carney said at the White House daily briefing.
Obama is set to deliver a speech on immigration reform Tuesday in Las Vegas.
