The Senate Majority Leader made the prediction on ABC’s This Week:

Reid previously said immigration reform is at the top of his priority list for the year, along with gun legislation. He lent his support last week to a bipartisan immigration framework announced by the “gang of eight” — four Republican senators, four Democratic senators — which would give a pathway to citizenship to undocumented immigrants after certain border security provisions are met and would streamline the legal immigration system.
