“Historic Moment” Says Ros-Lehtinen As Senate Passes Immigration Reform
Washington, DC -- Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) issued the following statement after the Senate passed a bipartisan immigration reform bill. The House is working on its own set of immigration proposals related to securing the borders and Ileana hopes that a conference report will pass after the House and Senate come to an agreement.
Said Ros-Lehtinen: “This is a historic moment in America. I am pleased with this bipartisan Senate vote on immigration reform that shows that Washington can transcend partisan politics for the good of the nation.
I am hopeful that my colleagues in the House will also do their part to secure our borders and help find a solution for the immigrant families living in our country, who can create jobs and contribute to our economy.
We are a nation based on opportunity and fairness for all and immigration reform is based on that.”
