This Sunday...

A spring triple header is coming to Washington, and we’re not talking about the Nationals. Immigration, Gun Laws, and the Budget are on our minds.

Our guests include Republican Senator Lindsey Graham who says South Carolina is ground zero in the fight for immigration reform as evangelicals join Republicans in pushing for change. Plus, some leading Republican Senators are threatening to filibuster the Democrats attempt at comprehensive gun reform legislation. Will Graham join them?

We’ll also have an interview with Connecticut’s Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal. Has the momentum for comprehensive gun reform legislation dried-up just 100 days after the Newtown tragedy? We’ll also get his take on the President’s budget, which we expect to see on April 10. How much wiggle room will Obama have on entitlements, and does he really think Republicans will get on board with more spending?

Check out the exclusive interview with Prop 8 opponents David Boies and Ted Olson. Find out why the oddball pairing believes they’re on the winning side of history, and why they took up the cause in the first place.

Our political panel includes strategists Donna Brazile and Kevin Madden, along with CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jessica Yellin.

And on this Easter Sunday we’ll introduce you to the pastors of the most reviled congregation in America – the Congress. Senate Chaplain Barry Black & House Chaplain Patrick Conroy.

We have lots of ground to cover. Join us Sunday at 9am and Noon Eastern.
