Rush Releases Statement on President Obama's Call for Immigration Reform

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Bobby L. Rush released the following statement on President Obama's call for comprehensive immigration reform:

"The President's commitments to strengthen our country's borders, hold employers responsible for hiring undocumented workers and a comprehensive legal immigration system will clear a path for every person seeking citizenship a chance to the American dream."

"The President's plan also expands on the Administration's previous efforts to pass the DREAM Act which provides permanent residency to youth who graduate from U.S. high schools and give them the promise of a secure life in this country. All these reforms point to future growth, diversity and strength of our nation."

"The time is now to work with the President on immigration reform, particularly Afro-immigration policy initiatives that I, along with my colleagues in the Congressional Black Caucus, will be working to advance. The President's proposed immigration reform will strengthen border security and infrastructure, combat fraud and identity theft, create strict requirements to qualify for lawful permanent resident status and expand opportunities for investor visas and U.S. economic development."
