Sunday show roundup: Immigration reform predictions

Lawmakers debated the future of immigration reform in the House on the Sunday shows. Top Democrats predicted that Republicans would support the legislation for political reasons, while House Republicans pushed back and defended their step-by-step approach.

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) expressed concern that a "stalemate" is looming, but Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) both think House Republicans will come around.

Meanwhile, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange acknowledged that Edward Snowden is "marooned" in Russia while giving few other details on the NSA leaker's current situation.
