Golly, Al, you really cheered me up.

Sorry. Look, things are hopeful for some movement on immigration reform, and I think that there's still enormous pressure on both parties to pass some legislation to promote jobs. The GOP still holds the House by a sizable majority, though, so I wouldn't look to them to adopt measures unless they include some of the things that advance their own agenda.

There's no reason to expect Schumer or Obama to change their positions. Schumer doesn't run again until 2016, and is not likely to face a serious challenge (obviously Obama doesn't have to run again for anything).
