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

I'm disappointed that partisan divide has prevented us from completing our work on the immigration reform bill. We can all agree that the system is broken and needs to be fixed. While the bill certainly was not perfect, it strengthened our border, addressed the millions of undocumented immigrants who are already here, established serious penalties for employers who hire illegal workers, and created a guest worker program. This was our best opportunity to ensure more secure borders and effective enforcement of immigration laws. However, because some of my colleagues were dead-set on stopping any immigration reform, the Senate did not have the opportunity to take an up or down vote on this bipartisan legislation.
