Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), who also chairs the Senate Immigration Subcommittee, will unveil an outline for an immigration reform bill on Wednesday that will likely detail a plan to offer amnesty to the nation's more than 11 million illegal aliens.

Sen. Schumer took over the Senate Immigration Subcommittee after Sen. Ted Kennedy stepped down. Already this session, Sen. Schumer has held two Immigration Subcommittee hearings with the goal of proving that the timing is right for a comprehensive immigration reform bill (amnesty).

Sen. Schumer plans to announce on Wednesday the principles that will guide the immigration reform bill that he plans to introduce to the Senate later this year. His announcement comes one day before Pres. Barack Obama will host Congressional leaders at the White House to discuss immigration reform.
