Statement of U.S. Senator Herb Kohl on the Immigration Bill

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Ensuring very strong border security must be an integral part of comprehensive immigration reform, as well as enforcement of serious penalties for employers who hire illegal workers. I also support a tough but fair path to citizenship for those who are already here and are playing by the rules -- this bill includes an English proficiency requirement and requires those who are here illegally to pay a considerable fine and start at the back of the line to wait their turn for consideration. I'm concerned about the bill's sweeping changes to the historic role of family in our immigration policy. Our immigration laws are intended to strengthen families, not build roadblocks.
