Statement Of Senator McConnell On Senate Passage Of The Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act
U.S. Senate Majority Whip Mitch McConnell today released the following statement on passage of the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act:
"Today, the Senate passed a bill to strengthen our borders, reform guest-worker programs that benefit employers and our economy, and deter illegal activity. I believe more work needs to be done to improve the bill as Congress considers it further. However, this is a necessary first step to balancing our tradition as a nation of immigrants, but also a nation of laws."
