Michael Bennet, U.S. Senator for Colorado, released the following statement on President Obama's speech on the need to pass comprehensive immigration reform:
"Washington can no longer afford to delay comprehensive immigration reform.
"It is time for action on a comprehensive plan that secures the border and requires undocumented immigrants to become legal, pay a fine and appropriate taxes and learn English. This is the only way to fully address the pressing problems in our immigration system.
"I look forward to working with anyone, from any party, who shows a genuine commitment to restoring common sense to our immigration system."
