President Obama to Discuss Immigration with McCain, Schumer

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House says President Barack Obama will meet Thursday with two senators playing a major role in an immigration overhaul in Congress.
  
Obama will meet in the Oval Office with Arizona Sen. John McCain, a Republican, and New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, a Democrat. McCain and Schumer were both part of a bipartisan Senate group that drafted a comprehensive bill that would create a path to citizenship for 11 million people in the U.S. illegally.
  
The Senate has already passed that bill, and attention has turned to the Republican-controlled House. GOP leaders say the Senate bill is flawed and say they won't take it up. Instead, they say they'll pursue a step-by-step approach. It's unclear whether that will include a path to citizenship. Many House Republicans oppose that provision.
